Summer News & New Works
This has been an exciting summer and I have good news to share. After winning the Texas Guitar Competition in March, I was fortunate to win the St. Joseph International Guitar Competition and place second in the Classical Minds Guitar Festival.
My new piece Bears, a work for guitar quartet, is finished and sent off to Dr. Michael Quantzat UT Brownsville to be performed early in 2010. I also just recently finished a new work for solo guitar- Nude #6, dedicated to my parents on their 50th Wedding Anniversary. A video will be available shortly (in the mean time, please enjoy this).
Soon, I will begin study with the incredible American composer Donald Grantham and the brilliant theorist and musicologist Elliot Antokoletz.
With their help, I hope to produce many new works this fall.
And as you can see this new website is slowly taking form. Here you will find videos, songs, scores, discussion topics, and a technique workshop.
There is much more to come!
