This is Arne Willems, a classical guitarist from Wuppertal, Germany. The picture above was taken back in 2017 when he visited my workshop to collect his guitar. The picture can be found on his instagram account. Every now and then, Arne drops by for lunch, combining his holidays at the Dutch coast with a social visit. Last month he sent me two YouTube videos in which he premieres the work of his friend, composer Marius Bajog. I herewith forward them. Arne plays a cedar top concert model.
This is Michael Luo. He is my Taiwanese dealer. Every year he organizes a guitar festival, together with guitarist Alfredo Huang. This year I was invited to come and give a lecture. Besides concerts, lectures and lessons, the festival also provides a consult with me, so guitarists can have their instruments adjusted.
This is Chih-Hsien Tseng. She is a Taiwanese guitar student, studying in Germany. Together with her friend and collegue guitarist Arne Willems she came to the workshop to pick up her new guitar. Next month we’ll meet again. In Taiwan, where her former teacher, Alfredo Huang organizes a festival where I’m invited to give a lecture.
