I’m thrilled to announce my 16th guitar class on the island of Maui in Hawaii from Tuesday, July 7 through Thursday, July 16, 2015. Joining me as guest teacher this year will be my dear friend Andrew York, who needs no introduction but just in case he’s a virtuoso guitarist, composer, and former member of the Grammy Award–winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet. Joining again this year as guest ukulele teacher and ensemble assistant will be Hawaiian guitarist, ukulele player and Maui class “family” member Ian O’Sullivan, currently on the faculty of the University of Hawaii.
The application deadline is February 15, with acceptance notifications sent by March 1.
Please see benverderymauiclass.com for more details on the class and the application procedure.
As in the two previous years helping me with class organization is guitarist and great friend John Olson. John is the man to direct any questions to by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, feel free to forward this announcement to friends, colleagues, and students who may be interested.
Hope to see you on Maui next summer!
Have a wonderful Holiday season!
Peace, Love and Guitars!!!!
A primary reason we play any piece of music is because it touches us in some deeply personal manner. There exists within the piece some musical truth that resonates within us. Such is the case with Agustin Barrios Mangore’s Julia Florida.
