    Hi All,
    I moved with my family (wife & little son) recently and looking forward to network, find students, perform classical music (when possible)

    Yes, it helps to know what instruments you play and teach. When I was a kid I learned classical (piano), but finally my parents allowed me to play other types of music I liked - ragtime, boogie-woogie, swing (30's and 40's), gospel, blues, etc... But I still love classical.

    Be creative to drum up business (no pun intended, Wally!). When I am at the auction, and there is organ or piano up for bids, I help the auctioneer and beat out some 8-to-the-bar, or offer winner two free lessons...

    Nice! I play guitar, but just bar chords. I played keyboards with some Italian and Puerto Rican friends, we played mostly Santana songs, we were always trying to work in some classical Spanish music, like you so eloquently play...

    What kind (brand) of guitar are you playing?

    Usually one made by a classical guitar luthier not big company brands

    Wow that's some crazy sh!t man! Very beautiful sounding instrument you have too.

    I'll try to hook you up but after New Year. I was a drummer until I started going deaf, but I still have some good connections here in Moscow.

    Here's a video of my work, I grew up with a Jazz drummer for a father, he also worked as a cymbal tester at Zildjian so I was exposed to the greatest Jazz and Rock drummers and musicians from an early age. I never really wanted to work as a musician, it's just I did it well.

    Nice! The singer has a great voice.

    You have videos? All I have is audios. I think we had two drummers when this was recorded, sounds like it during the drum solo. Or maybe one drummer and one on timbales. Also had Sonny on Conga drums, someone on bongos and I "played" sticks, claves, gourd when I wasn't playing keyboards. Yeah, the guitarist tries hard and is skillful, but makes a lot of mistakes. Hard to copy Carlos Santana note-for-note.

    My favorite part of the organ solo is about 6:00.

    Thank you so much, glad you found it interesting. It’s a piece by the Cuban composer Leo Brouwer dedicating an hommage to a fellow composer from Japan by the name of Toru Takemitsu. The guitar I used is by Manuel Contreras II, but I could not bring it here unfortunately, had too much luggage & then the baby & his stuff, too complicated.

    Good you didn't bring it, I've seen more than one guitar "discovered" at customs, and the visitor being lined up for customs taxes.
