The American Guitarist - Classical Guitarist Feedback

A mesmerizing evening of virtuoso classical guitar: she is one with the guitar and the world classics she translates to her rapt audience; there is no barrier between the exquisitely rendered music and the listener.

Barbara Christian, President of the Performing Arts Society in Kenai,

She very obviously loves her instrument and the music she plays on it…[she] proves herself to be a master at creating moods…
