"Words seem to me so ambiguous, so vague, so easily misunderstood compare to genuine music, which fills the soul with things a thousand times better than words." ~Felix Mendelssohn


“My whole being was seized by an indescribable happiness as I began to play the guitar, for its tone was deep and sweet in the bass notes, diaphanous and vibrant in the higher ones. And its accent, the soul of its voice was noble and persuasive. I forgot everything but the guitar…” ~ Andres Sergovia
