Introduction

My name is William Farmer. I live in Huntington Beach, CA. My profession is "Architect" My first guitar lessons were at "Baxter Norhthrup" on Ventura Blvd. in the early seventies. I look forward to performing in a group setting again.

What Instrument(s) do you play?

Classical Guitar

Describe your playing level and experience. (No judgements here. We just want people of similar abilities and experience to find each other)

Ability to sight read music. Studying a variety of composers at present time, but have not done a solo performance for an audience since my college recitals, where I played Bach's "Gigue" from his suite in e minor and Handel's" Passacaglia" among others during that time. I gave up studying classical guitar for about 20 years during a period in my life. But found my old books and began studying again about a year ago. My fingering abilities came back fast, but solid sight reading abilities and confidence are taking longer to achieve. Patience is a virtue. Your company is a first step for me to regain that confidence and meet other enthusiasts. I enjoy playing with all levels of musicians and mediums.

    Yea sounds good I've got some duet music too, the three cornered hat (Manuel DeFalla) and some other stuff. Is it possible to practice at your house? (My neighbors are a little sensitive)
    I'm busy saturday and monday, but other than that now through next week I have time.

    Hi, William:

    We do have a guitarist, Raymond who has joined us for meet ups so you can do that as well. He brings his own music and has also purchased some chamber music at our shop for guitar & bowed string instruments. Another option for you would be to contact him through the website and arrange to play duets.
