FACULTY NOTES

Meet
Michael Dinallo

Michael Dinallo’s teaching philosophy can be described as relaxed. He explains, “I learned a long time ago that putting pressure on a student is the worst thing an instructor can do.” He believes teaching methods should be determined by the student. He goes on to explain, “Learning can be done with traditional methods or by using alternative methods, such as the Nashville Number System, which is a great tool for ear training.”

CCM PERFORMANCES

Carmen Marsico Canzone Mini-Concert


With music, and when I’m with my guitar, I find solace, and peace, and creative inspiration.
