March 3rd, 2014 by bob Leave a reply »

The NJMEA (New Jersey Music Educators Association) Guitar Festival will be held at Wall High School on April 5th fromĀ  10:00-4:00. Wall High School is at the corners of 18th Avenue and New Bedford Roads.

The festival will feature a concert and class by Israeli-born guitar virtuoso Tali Roth, who is the director of Classical Guitar studies at the Juilliard Pre-College division. The festival will also feature recitals by three young local virtuosi who have gone on to study with Ms. Roth at Juilliard: John Bogan, Joseph Douglass, and Ryan Johnson.

Mr. Bogan has won several competitions and is currently a student of David Starobin at the Manhattan School of Music. Mr. Johnson is a graduate of Wall High School and The Juilliard Pre-College division. Mr. Douglass is a senior at Pt. Pleasant High School and studies with Ms. Roth in the Juilliard Pre-College division. All three students studied with Keith Calmes, guitar teacher at Wall High School, and went on to study with Tali Roth.

The festival will also include a showcase for guitar ensembles (including the guitar ensemble from Rowan University), and a seminar on guitar education by Tom Amoriello from the NJMEA.

  1. I do believe all of the ideas you have introduced in your post.
    They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices.

    Could you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

    Download All Files acts as a plug-in for the default browser,
    when you click on a file to download that is when Download All FIles
    takes over and extends the ability of your Android phone to download files of almost any type.
    Start by signing up for a developer account with Google.
    Look in your app drawer for something called ‘Files’ or ‘My Files.
