Scott Sanchez is a guitarist based in New England. His playing has been described as "Colorful and poignant" (Soundboard Magazine, U.S.A.) and “Very engaging, virtuosic and spirited” (David Leisner, Chair of the classical guitar program at the Manhattan School of Music). Referring to his British debut Classical Guitar Magazine (Great Britain) said, “Sanchez drew the audience into his playing with his excellent performance... made light work of playing what at times looked like some fearsomely difficult passages.”
Sanchez's four cds on Intraspect Productions cover a vast repertoire spanning the music of the Baroque era to modern day masterpieces. He has also recorded music for the Contemporary Anthology of Solo Guitar Music for Five Fingers of the Right Hand, published by Mel Bay Publications. Scott's scholarly endeavors include writing articles that have frequently been published in international music periodicals. In addition, he regularly arranges and composes for the guitar. His arrangements and compositions are available at his website and at Sheet Music Plus (a division of Hal Leonard LLC).
Sanchez is currently a Lecturer in Music at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire where he teaches Guitar, Guitar Ensemble, Jazz History, Music and Film, Fundamentals and Women in Music. He earned his Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Denver as a student of the Cuban classical guitarist, Ricardo Iznaola, and graduated with a Master of Music degree from Yale University where he was a student of the American classical guitarist, Benjamin Verdery. As a student, he also performed in masterclasses for renowned guitarists such as Scott Tennant, David Russell and Pepe Romero, among others.
