A few days ago some of our advanced students, ages ranging from 8-15, performed for San Francisco Conservatory faculty member, brilliant guitarist and phenomenal teacher, Marc Teicholz, in our annual guest masterclass series. These events are always thrilling for everyone involved: students grow and learn from watching each other experience a class, students have the chance to receive guidance and praise from someone other their teacher, and the whole experience inspires them to keep working hard to refine and develop their ability to express themselves through their guitars. Repertoire heard in the masterclass was varied: Carlo Domeniconi’s Homage to St. Exupéry, Heitor Villa-Lobos’ Prelude #2, Gaspar Sanz’s Canarios, Johann Sebastian Bach’s Prelude (BWV999) and Gavottes (BWV995), Fernando Sor’s Etude #2 (Segovia’s Edition), two Brouwer Etudes, and Simone Ianarelli’s Detrás del arcoiris (Behind the Rainbow). Marc’s insight and advice was inspiring to all and focused on both musical issues and technical advice.
