Last weekend’s Florida Guitar Festival drew competitors andclinicians from all around the country to Tallahassee. Prominently featured in the opening concert and masterclasses were our advanced guitar students from MLE’s North Florida Suzuki School. Students Antonia Nowels, Kabeer Aggarwal, Simon Joos, Jemmy Qin, Donald Hinchman, Terry Lin, and Himank Chhaya performed in masterclasses for the FGF clinicians and also performed as an ensemble at the festival’s opening concert. Himank, Terry, and Donald were also semi-finalists in the high school division of the 2023 FGF competition. Congratulations to all of the wonderful students and their instructor, Dr. Ben Lougheed.
