Guitarist João Luis, a member of the Brasil Guitar Duo and a professor of music at Purchase College, will teach a master class to young guitarists at the JCC Thurnauer School of Music on Thursday, April 18, at 4 p.m. The class will feature students from New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut, who have been selected by audition. It is open to the public; admission is free.
“We are very excited to welcome João Luiz to Thurnauer,” Dorothy Kaplan Roffman, the music school’s director, said. “I look forward to his class, to learning from him, and to seeing him share his artistry with fine young musicians.” Master classes give students and audience members a valuable opportunity to gain insight into musical works and the artistic process through intimate public coaching.
The master class is presented as part of the Thurnauer School of Music’s Beverly and Lewis Lauring Master Class series, and will be the 68th master class offered at the Thurnauer School since 1996. Each has featured renowned artists, including the violinist Itzhak Perlman and the cellist Steven Isserlis.
