A few words from Howard: My program is not a sales pitch but an educational forum that uses Benedetto guitars to demonstrate the performance characteristics of archtop design. Students walk away appreciating the art of lutherie, the importance of materials, and the choices they will make the rest of their career when selecting new instruments. They also get to put their hands on some of the best jazz guitars in the world.
Perhaps the most enjoyable way to do this is to include those faculty members who already play Benedettos. How cool to have duet performances with Benedetto Players and Berklee Educators Larry Baione, Garrison Fewell, Jane Miller, Jon Wheatley, Mark White, and visiting guitarist Luca di Luzio from Italy. Hope to see you there!
