BM, Guitar Performance
Joe Gallo is a guitarist and composer from Baltimore, Maryland. As a teacher, Joe provides his students with a diverse and interconnected understanding of the instrument. His teaching draws from his wealth of experience playing classical, jazz, blues, pop and rock, and incorporates both standard technique and jazz improvisation in lessons, to give students a broader guitar education. Joe is adept in classical technique, including fingerstyle, and is able to translate foundational ideas to all genres.
Joe has had the benefit of learning from some of the great guitarists of our time. A graduate of American University, he studied with some of the best music faculty in the DC area while completing his degree in guitar performance. Joe also received the opportunity to study abroad in Austria, learning under Armin Egger, one of the most acclaimed classical guitarists in Europe. Joe uses his depth of experience to now write, arrange, and perform his own music for jazz fusion ensembles, occasionally alternating between diverse technique for jazz and classical guitar within the same performance.
With more than 12 years of guitar experience, Joe has played at a variety of area venues, including Rams Head Live, DC 9, and the Recher Theater. Currently, Joe composes and collaborates with others in the pursuit of releasing an album.
