César Avilés César is a music educator currently teaching violin and composition at the Musikschule in Düren, Germany.
Growing up in a town known as the “Vatican of Puerto Rico,” César was a Catholic for 30 years. Like many people, he discovered Stoicism after reading pop-culture books. This led to a first read of the Meditations. After misunderstanding Marcus’ message, he joined the College in 2019 and graduated from both the SES and MAS courses.
César was first introduced to the Stoic conception of God during SES, and after many hours (months?) of struggling to understand it, Stoic physics became his favorite subject.
He lives with his wife and two small kids in a house with too many books near Cologne in Germany.
