Michael Sanchez

The October Issue of iFiddle Magazine features violinist Michael Sanchez. In just a few years Michael has built the webs premier sites, Violin Tutor Pro, and Superior Violins, using his skill as an educator and entrepreneur.

He’s not only a violinist and teacher, but an author. Michael has written the book, Fiddle For Dummies.

Michael Sanchez has been playing classical violin and fiddle for more than 24 years and teaching in his private studio for almost 10 years. He has taught more than 500 students during his teaching career and currently has more than 50 students weekly at his studio in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Tom Morley
 As an Irish fiddler, Tom Morley has made multiple trips to Ireland to perform and research traditional Irish music (studying with and playing alongside legendary fiddlers including Manus McGuire, Matt Cranitch, Liz Carroll, Kevin Burke, Tommy Peoples, and Gerry O’Connor); through his studio, The Fiddle Center, he leads popular Fiddle Workshops and Irish Trad Slow Sessions throughout the Southeast.

As a faculty member of the Mark O’Connor String Method Camp he has taught Old-Time and Irish Fiddle.

 For more than 20 years, renowned violinist/composer Christian Howes has been powerfully moving audiences all over the world as an artist with a distinctly American voice, forging ground at the intersections of jazz, classical, and world music. But when the U.S. State Department invited him to Montenegro and war-torn Ukraine in the past year, it was Christian’s turn to be profoundly affected.
These and other recent developments in the violinist’s career and personal life have inspired Howes to call for a “reframing of the discussion about what it is to take pride in being American” on the Ohio native’s fourth recording for Resonance Records American Spirit being released Friday, Oct. 30, 2015.
