SAMPLES

 
 

Los Caujaritos (venezuela)

Los Caujaritos is the most recorded guitar work of Venezuelan composer, Ignacio Figueredo.

 
 

afro-cuban lullaby (cuba)

This calming piece was penned by Leo Brouwer, Cuba's most celebrated guitar composer. 

 
 

SChottish Choro (Brazil)

The classical guitar canon owes a great debt to Brazilian composer, Heitor Villa-Lobos. This piece is inspired by the choro, an improvisational song style you would hear on the streets of Rio in the late 1800s.

 
 

ALLEMANDE (classical)

Arrangements of J.S. Bach's lute works are quintessential classical guitar listening. Classical works like Allemande pair especially well with wedding ceremonies.

LAGRIMA (spain)

This sweet Spanish classical piece is a favorite for the bride's processional.


RAVES

Justin was great to work with. His playing style and sound was perfect for our wedding ceremony, very romantic but festive and bright at the same time. He has a wide repertoire but was also willing to learn a new song that we specifically wanted him to play. He even offered to make a recording of the song and send it to us. He was very professional and made himself available for all of the rehearsals and walk-throughs before the actual event. We would definitely work with him again!
— Judy O
Justin called and emailed ahead of the anniversary evening to check in. He arrived early to the party, was dressed very professionally, was very lovely to deal with, played beautifully and added just what we had hoped for to the feeling of the night. We would love to have him come and play again for any special event in the future.
— Jacquie R
Justin was an excellent compliment to our wedding ceremony. Easy to work with, professional and extremely talented. Would recommend to anyone wholeheartedly.
