|Guitarist Michael Silvestri has performed throughout New England in both solo and ensemble situations on radio, public television, private recitals and lecture demonstrations for public and private schools. His varied repertoire has enabled him to perform from the Montauk Yacht Club in New York to Kennebunkport, Maine for a private function for the (then) Vice President of the United States, the honourable George Bush.
A participant in master classes with Jorge Morel, Rey de la Torre and Manuel Barrueco, Michael began his studies at age ten and went on to study at The Guitar Workshop in New York. He later attended Hofstra University.
A member of the Guitar Foundation of America, he has composed, performed and produced music for commercial broadcast and nonbroadcast situations and has been teaching privately for over twenty years. He has recently been included on the panel of judges for the classical guitar competitions held at the University of Southern Maine.
"My passion for music and the guitar has been a very important part of my life. I have lived here in Maine for over twenty five years teaching, playing and, when time permits, composing music.
I Have been fortunate enough to perform in master classes with a few of the finest guitarists in the world. This has given me a greater knowledge of music, performance and teaching experience.
I would like to thank everyone who has supported my musical endeavors and thank you for visiting this site."
