”I am deeply inspired by the female guitar pioneers who made timeless contributions to American music and its history. These trailblazing women weren't just playing the guitar; they were living it, pouring their souls into every note. Their stories are not just about music but about overcoming barriers, setting new standards, and inspiring generations of players.

I’ll share some of the musical qualities that inspired me about each: their technique, energy, and style — and then I’ll play a performance study to illustrate those qualities in a musical context.” </em>
