Already a virtuoso player, he has honed his performance level in masterclasses throughout the US and Europe, including the Chigiana (Siena, Italy), Mozarteum (Salzburg, Austria), and Boston GuitarFest. He has played for some of the world’s greatest living maestros of the instrument, including Eliot Fisk, Leo Brouwer, Oscar Ghiglia, Manuel Barrueco, Meng Su, Benjamin Verdery, and Joaquin Clerch.
