He studied music, theology and philosophy at the University of Salamanca , where he was later appointed Professor of Music. He wrote three volumes of pedagogical works for the baroque guitar that form an important part of today's classical guitar repertory and have informed modern scholars in the techniques of baroque guitar playing.
He spent some years as the organist of the Spanish Viceroy at Naples. Sanz learned to play guitar while studying under Lelio Colista and was influenced by the music of the Italian guitarists Foscarini , Granata , and Corbetta. The ninety works in this masterpiece are his only known contribution to the repertory of the guitar  and include compositions in both punteado "plucked" style and rasqueado "strummed" style. In addition to his musical skills, Gaspar Sanz was noted in his day for his literary works as a poet and writer, and was the author of some poems and two books now largely forgotten.
His excellent translation of the celebrated L'huomo di lettere by Jesuit Daniello Bartoli first appeared in , with further editions in and His compositions provide some of the most important examples of popular Spanish baroque music for the guitar and now form part of classical guitar pedagogy.
Sanz's manuscripts are written as tablature for the baroque guitar and have been transcribed into modern notation by numerous guitarists and editors; Emilio Pujol 's edition of Sanz's Canarios being a notable example. Sanz's tablature is remarkable in that it is topologically correct, representing the first string in the lower line and the fifth string in the highest printed line.
In this epoch, guitars only had five strings. It also features the "italian alphabet", a shorthand system that assigns a chord to each letter, so that melodic chord progressions can be written and read very neatly with rhythm information as a simple sequence of letters, a concept related to the recent Nashville system.
