Besides Albeniz,Villa-Lobos, Barrios, Merlin and other Hispanics, his program will include music of Roland Dyens , J.S. Bach.

Buffalo has a number of first rate guitarists. Jazz, Rock, Blues, Classical, Country and Western all are very well represented in the community. Michael is one of Buffalo’s Classical representatives, although he is quite versed in other styles, such as Jazz and Rock. He is also an electric bass player. He is an accomplished composer and arranger and an excellent pedagogue. He teaches at Amherst School of the Guitar. He is a Suzuki teaching Method certified.

This promises to be an enjoyable evening of beautifully played spanish guitar music, as well as a learning experience since Michael enjoys telling the audience stories and information about the pieces he plays.

Michael holds degrees in music and guitar performance from Fredonia School of Music, SUNY Fredonia and The Eastman School of Music, Univ. of Rochester.

Tickets are $10.00 and available at the door or, ahead of time at 716-207-4720. Canisius College students with ID free.
