From Martial Arts to Music: An Interview with Guitar Student Andy D.

This week we are featuring Andy D., a multi-talented student who was kind enough spend some time talking with us about his background, the guitar, and his thoughts on music. Originally from England, Andy moved to the United States to work in New York as an IT professional. He fell in love with the city and never left. We had the pleasure of hearing Andy perform at the 2013 Recital, where he wowed the audience with a solo guitar and voice version of "Landslide" by Stevie Nicks.

Falling in Love with Music: An Interview with Julia B.

Our featured student of the week is the talented Julia B., a young lady we had the privilege of hearing sing at this year's NYC Recital. Julia comes from a family of musicians and music lovers who have supported her talents, and as you will see in the following interview, she is wise beyond her years.

In November Julia will be releasing a Christmas album, and you can hear her beautiful, jazzy rendition of "Winter Wonderland" below.
