Per Zach: I began studying music at nine, but on the piano and clarinet.  It was not until I was twelve that I discovered the classical guitar. From my first lesson, I was hooked.  The instrument has repaid my passion for it by helping me to accomplish things I never dreamed of: attending the finest universities, studying with the current great masters, taking me across America and to Europe to perform.  I am happy to be able to share my love for the guitar and its music with you!”John Hernandez - for website - enhanced
