I’ll be previewing my soon to be released Phase I Primary Skills Development in a lecture/workshop at the 26th annual Northwest Guitar Festival to be held at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon from Friday April 7 through Sunday April 9.
Featured at the NWGF will be evening recitals by Martha Masters, Michael Partington and Hilary Field. Afternoon
recitals will be presented by Elizabeth C.D. Brown and Michael Lefevre. In addition there will be masterclasses, a guitar orchestra performance and two competitions as well as a lecture by yours truly. (Festival schedule is below)
My lecture cover right hand technique and will take place Friday, April 7th from 1:45-2:45 in Lincoln Hall’s room LH303. In addition I’ll be performing Fernando Sor’s duet L’ encouragement with festival director Jesse McCann with the festival orchestra (arrangement by Bryan Johanson) lead by John Mery on Sunday, April 9th from noon to 1 pm. Amateurs are encouraged to participate – its a great way to meet other guitarists!
