Recently we visited the guitar building workshop of Guitarras Sevillanos in Tijuana. That’s a pretty famous name in the region for custom built stringed instruments including classical and steel string guitars, vihuelas, guitarrones, the Cuban tres, and more. We are having a small “octave” guitar built which will look just like a small nylon string guitar but will be tuned up one octave, for more of a ukulele sound. Many of our teachers and students own instruments from Sevillano, so it was a real treat to get to meet luthier David Sevillano Vargas, the third generation of Sevillano builders, and commission a guitar from him. If you have a chance you should definitely pay them a visit!
Photographer Katie Fisher was on hand at our Summer Recital to get photos of all our student performers. Here’s a sample, and you can see more photos on our Facebook, Instagram, and Google Plus pages!
We had a fantastic time at the Summer Recital on June 10! Congratulations to all the students who performed! We had an entire “mini recital” of our piano students who showcased what they’ve been learning in their lessons, after which our guitar and ukulele students took to the stage for performances in a wide range of styles. Some great singing too! We’ll see you at the next recital!
