I recently recieved a Bachelor of Music degree in classical guitar performance from Belmont Unviversity. I have over an hour worth of repertoire consisting of works from the 16th through the 21st century. These works include the Lute Suite No. 1 in E minor by J.S. Bach BWV 996, Sonatina by Federico Torroba, Mozart Theme and Variations by Fernando Sor, and many more. A lot of these pieces are highly expressive and colorful, as well as upbeat and joyful.
Price Range: $250 and up
Gig Length: 60 - 75 minutes
What to Expect
Lute music (transcribed to guitar) from the Rennesaince and Baroque era (Alonso Mudarra and J.S. Bach), an upbeat Theme and Variations work from the Classical era (Fernando Sor), a Brazilian Art piece that is highly imitative of the cello (Heitor Villa-Lobos), a Romantic style piece that is extremely colorful and orchestral (Torroba), a famous Neo-Baroque guitar work entitled La Catedral (Agustin Barrios Mangore), an Irish folk tune entitled My Gentle Harp (David Russell version), a guitar arrangement for a Cinderella piece (A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes). Many more to be learned.
Hello! I recently graduated from Belmont University with Bachelors degree in music performance. I began my musical journey with piano at age 9. At age 11, I started playing my father's old guitar and instantly became attached. I've been apart of various bands/projects all my life, including concert bands (trumpet), drumline (bass), musicals, chamber singers (tenor), rock bands (guitar), guitar ensembles, and solo recitals. I fell in love with the classical guitar about 5 years ago before I started college. After intense practice, studying, and performing for the past 5 years, I learned that this is a special craft that I can never let go. Performing and learning new music is all I want to do.
Additional Booking Notes
All I will need is a chair.
