Q & A with Paul
Congratulations on the program. This recital was part of the larger guitar festival weekend at Ball State. Tell me about the festival.
This is the 23rd year and every year we bring in a guest artist. Sometimes the GFA winner, an alumni, or current Artist.
Did the performance conclude your tour?
My tour is in April in Taiwan- 4 concerts, 2 Master Classes, 4 lectures and I will be an adjudicator at a competition.
Your program is ‘my kind’ of program with virtuosity in the selected pieces covering a wide variety of musical styles and era. Were did you think of when
planning the program?
I am always looking for contrast of periods and styles.
For some who might not know; you have written a method / exercise book available from Mel Bay! Is there any new media projects in the works?
No at the present-just some arranging for the Ball State Guitar Ensemble.
The Ball State year must be coming to an end. Are you ready for the Summer?
I have two Festivals to perform for THEN GOLF! (my hobby!!!)
