Latin American guitar repertoire & the Assads…

The Assad brothers celebrated 50 years of playing as a duo last year; they are such an inspiration to young players like me and, as teachers, they absolutely the best. It was truly an honor to play once more for them.

This week we got to work with the maestros specifically on Latin American guitar repertoire. My repertoire selection for this week was Contemplación by Agustín Barrios and El Arpa y la Sombra by Leo Brouwer.

Besides having private lessons with each of them we got one incredibly useful technique seminar with Odair and a composition/improvisation seminar with Sergio.

A memory recorded: Maestro Sergio recorded their promotional video and interview for the University of Arizona with my Gnatek guitar, when the video is out I will share it!
