Hello! I provide *authentic* classical guitar (nylon-string) music. From traditional classical guitar music to contemporary, modern popular music, I will perform your requested music and include my own professional selections with the precise technique, tone and expressiveness required for the classical guitar. I provide only the highest quality sound and professional appearance that will be perfect for your occasion. I guarantee unmatched technique, tone and musicality. I am not merely a steel-string, fingerstyle guitarist advertising themselves as a classical guitarist on Gig Masters, but a true student, teacher, performer and master of the *art* of the classical guitar.

The honesty, tone, sound, and vast classical guitar repertoire included with my services is what sets me apart from select, categorized classical guitarist(s) on Gig Masters. There are great true classical guitarists to hire on this site. There are also those that need to realize a mere light rendition of a work by J.S. Bach is far from a passing requirement to classify yourself as a classical guitarist. *Classical Guitar*... not an acoustic, steel-string guitar. I do not just know a "few classical tunes", but with hiring me you are supporting a life devoted to the art and the hours upon hours it takes to master the demanding repertoire of the classical guitar. It may be difficult to decide on the best performer for your occasion, however, with the tone heard in my videos and from my self-produced, self-recorded classical guitar album, I present a great eclipse to the many other guitarists who advertise themselves as classical guitarists on Gig Masters. Comparing recordings and repertoire between the options on Gig Masters will shine great light that I am the optimal decision for your event.

I have and still believe that playing should come first, the quality of the music and the skill of the instrumentalist. I do not need to rely on an overly-inflated "over-selling" biography, or years of reviews from playing "light classics" to carry the future sales of my services unlike many guitarists. I do not proclaim to be what I am not. My playing speaks for itself, and not many other guitarist using this service site can come close to committing to that statement. I do not coast on "light-tunes" with broken musical lines. I am a true professional, virtuoso and artist of the instrument.

For my live performance, I have the option of playing fully acoustic (no amplification) or with a non-intrusive, non-tone alerting form of amplification (as heard in my videos). I have the freedom and flexibility of playing at any location during the event, with battery options and extreme portability. You will not have to worry about a single thing when hiring me. I cover all booking fees and greatly except online payments for your convenience.

Aside from giving solo concerts, recording, composing, and improvising entire hour(s) long sets of music... I teach guitar at the highest level to students of all ages at the highly regarded Nashua Community Music School in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Thank you for reading about what I have to offer and listening to my playing, I look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you,
Joe

Joe performed at our wedding ceremony this June. Leading up to the wedding he was always quick to respond to my questions and was able to accommodate all my song requests. He is extremely talented, very reliable and a pleasure to work with. Thanks Joe for helping make our day so special.

Communication prior to the ceremony was excellent. As I was a bit nervous, I didn't see Joe during the ceremony, but i sure heard his music. It was lovely and just what I'd hoped.
