I also teach an 8-member guitar ensemble of 7th and 8th graders in public school, called the "Wilson Guitar Ensemble." They have given 10 performances in Hudson County, NJ at various community multicultural shows and events.
I have a varied collection of archtop guitars, colid bodies, and acoustics ranging in brand names like: D'Angelico, Gibson, Fender, Epiphone, Taylor, Martin,l and others.
