L-A-G-Q-me baby..

Not only will I get to see LAGQ's William Kanengiser play, but I also will get to play for him in his 'master class' the next day! What a great opportunity - playing with one of the top guitarists in the world is not something you do every day!

You know, this is definitely one of the beautiful things about the classical guitar community. You can't just "play" for people like Yo Yo Ma after seeing them in concert. It just doesn't happen. However, classical guitarists really make themselves available to teach the new generation of players. How cool is that? I'm definitely going to attend at least 3 of the master classes sponsored by STLCGS this year. The opportunity to play with these incredible players is just too good to pass up!
