Hi. My name is Keith. I've been playing classical guitar for more than 45 years. I've made my living as a musician and sound engineer all my life. I teach all styles of guitar. I first started playing the music of the Beatles, and Simon and Garfunkle. I've played all types of music, but my life is based around classical guitar. I have a filing cabinet of classical guitar sheet music (and other styles) that has been the foundation of my musical education. Bach has been my favorite. These days I also enjoy the contemporary compositions of Andrew York, Maurizio Colonna, Francis Kleynjans, etc.. Thanks to some of my students I've also enjoyed the music of some steel string fingerstyle guitarists, such as Al Petteway, Andy McKee, Erik Tingstad, Martin Tallstrom, and so many others. I've also enjoyed the compositions of some Japanese composers such as Hirokazu Sato, Masaaki Kishibe. Although some of these pieces are easy to play, they sound really nice to the average listener and sound beautiful on a classical guitar. My guitar heros have been Segovia, Bream and Parkening. Of course many others but these three have been my greatest influence. I have a lot of guitars but right now my 2 favorites are a cedar top and a spruce top Yulong Gou. These are double top guitars and they sound wonderful.
