Colin Davin Performs Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s “Tempo di Menuetto”
Colin Davin began his studies with me at age ten. Since then hestudied five years at the Cleveland Institute of Music Young Artist Program with Jason Vieaux, earned his bachelor’s degree with William Kanengiser at the University of Southern California, and his master’s degree with Sharon Isbin at The Juilliard School of Music. He’s a two time finalist in the Guitar Foundation of America Competition, and has often appeared on the Guitars International Distinguished Artist Series in Cleveland. For four years he was selected to be the teaching assistant for Sharon Isbin at the Aspen Music Festival. He’s also performed and taught at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul. In 2014 he appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman performing with soprano Jessye Norman. Healso appeared with Ms. Norman at Carnegie Hall in February 2015. His debut CD “The Infinite Fabric of Dreams” was released in April of 2011. Of it, American Record Guide wrote: “Mr. Davin is the real thing, a player with a virtuoso’s technique, a deeply expressive musicianship, and a probing imagination.” He currently serves on the conservatory faculty at the Cleveland Institute of Music, and is head of the guitar program at the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music.
“Tom Poore’s teaching has been an incredibly valuable resource to me. His ability to clearly convey musical concepts to students is a skill many otherwise knowledgeable teachers do not possess. The foundations of musicianship I took from my studies with him have consistently helped me as a guitarist and a musician.”
