I am a classical guitarist. I play solo and in a duo with a flutist. I play all of the standard wedding music, background music for dinner or cocktails, and many other special events. I've performed for major corporations, leading politicians, various community organizations, and individuals. I've played in large banquet halls, churches, private clubs/halls, and homes. I often play outside in parks, backyards, patios, lakeside, and many,many gazebos. The music is gentle and non-intrusive. You can have a conversation with your friends or just listen to beautiful music and enjoy the moment.
My wife and I chose Roger to play classical guitar at our wedding in Grand Ledge, MI. He played during both the ceremony and part of the reception, and it was very easy coordinating with him before the big day. He was responsive to email and was willing to work with our limited budget. My wife and I did not have any song requests, but he asked nonetheless.
Roger was very sharp and professional while performing. As the groom I was occupied with too many things to pay close attention, but our guests enjoyed his talent and I'm thankful he was part of our day. I'd definitely recommend Roger for your classical needs, and if I need to hire a musician again I know who I'm reaching out to.
Price Range: $300-and up
I've been teaching guitar for over 40 years and performing for weddings, receptions, and various other special events since 1974. I've written two Guitar Method Books, music for advertising, composed music for film (including two award-winning documentaries) and have two CDs available on iTunes. Although I'm primarily a classical guitarist, I often perform solo guitar arrangements of popular songs requested by my clients.
