FACULTY NOTES

Meet
Manuel Garcia-Baro

Manuel has quite an eclectic background and finds there are things to like in all styles of music. He usually starts with classical repertoire for beginner students as it’s an easier way to achieve the technical rudiments but he encourages all students to bring pieces they’d like to play.  As a composer, Manuel confesses to loving music theory but he understands that the learning has to start from an aural perspective.

CCM PERFORMANCES

Carmen Marsico Canzone Mini-Concert


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