DAN GARCIA Music of Spain & South America

Upcoming Performances

-Wednesday- September 20th- Perrot Library-Old Greenwich, CT

-Tuesday- October 17th- Howlland Center for the Arts, Beacon NY

 

Dan's solo concert performances have been pleasing audiences around the U.S. for years.

Dan's program features compositions from the Americas and Spain, as he soulfully presents works by Villa-Lobos, Agustín Barrios, Jose Luis Merlín, Antonio Ruiz-Pipó, Albéniz, Tárrega, and Brower, and more.

 

Steeped in tradition and the sounds of old Segovia records, Dan Garcia’s love of Spanish guitar began right at home in his birthplace of Madrid, Spain.  From the romantic compositions of Francisco Tárrega to the memorable melodies of Augustín Barrios, Dan’s program of Spanish and South American  songs is an authentic offering of personal heritage. 

 

Dan was the featured guitarist in Garth Edwin Sunderland’s world premiere composition “Pisces” with Lost Dog New Music Ensemble and later with  Orchestra of the Americas at Museo del Barrio Theatre, NYC. His studies include master classes with guitar virtuosi Ernesto Bitetti, Oscar Gihglia, Jason  Vieaux and Alvaro Pierri. 

 

In addition to Spanish classical music, Dan plays a variety of styles including world music, jazz, flamenco and rock. He has performed countless gigs in New York City’s most revered clubs including Joe's Pub, (le) Poisson Rouge, SOBs, Zinc Bar, Drom, The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, and Cafe Wha? and is the lead guitarist of the mesmerizing Santana tribute band, Black Magic.

 

Dan founded Maple Street Studio, a private teaching studio, and DG Music Studio where he composes, arranges and collaborates on music for media, film and advertising. He is the creator of three guitar technique books as well as two bilingual learning apps for aspiring guitarists and teachers. In addition to a thriving performance career, Dan is a professor of music at Manhattan College in NYC.
