Hey musicians who aren't done learning about music (which is basically all of us), my college teaching is wrapping up and I'm in town a lot this spring/summer, so I'm taking on new private students. Guitar, composition, group coaching, arranging, pasta making, I enjoy it all so send me a message if you're interested!
"Sicilian tempers run legendarily high, but inhabitants of the Italian island—and their descendants—have a matching appetite for fun. Even a downpour couldn’t have dampened this sextet’s raucous energy.” Alex Varty, Georgia Straight (Vancouver Jazz Festival review)
“Michael Occhipinti’s miraculous sounding guitar, Don Byron’s warm and woody clarinet, and the magnificent voices of the ineffable Dominic Mancuso and the divine Pilar. No pomp; no circumstance; just wonderfully and magically made music.” JazzdaGama
