Special Guest - Carlos Pozzi - on "If Music Could Talk" (archived from May 2005)
***archived show (from May 2005)***-- "Guitar Teacher Carlos Pozzi has taught many people, young and old, to play the guitar. He gave me a new perspective on music in general at an early age- specifically, he taught me to use my ears.
He is the author of his own method of teaching guitar (Mr. Pozzi studied under Maestro Abel Carlevaro who passed away in 2001.) Mr. Carlos Pozzi has developed and will soon publish his own Guitar Method, a project which has taken years of research and consideration- and it is now almost complete, a fact that Mr. Pozzi expresses with sincere enthusiasm.
AS a teacher, Carlos not only gets you excited about the music, but he also promotes the importance of "playing real music" early on in the student's career.- His method stresses an early intuitive understanding of the guitar as an instrument, proper posture when practicing and playing, & the basic finger positions which translate to "true musical notation" in later lessons.
He performs regularly here in Richmond at Museums, Galleries, Weddings, the Richmond Public Library, even under the Carrilon ( an amazing performance! ) And several times alongside his many students at the Governor's Mansion.
If you haven't heard him play, we might have a chance to give you a sample of his brilliance this Sunday -maybe, by then, Ill have some dates to give you when you can see Carlos Pozzi play live in person..."
[[We also played some music from Argentina, and Uruguay, but mainly focused on Classical Guitar performances by Andres Segovia, Julian Bream, Sharon Isben, John Williams, and Carlos Montoya.]]
