About Jeffrey Goodman

 

Jeffrey Goodman is an award winning composer, classical guitarist and teacher currently living in Los Angeles, California.  Upon its release, his “Hands of the Angels” CD of original guitar compositions was rated as the #1 Top CD on PayPlay.fm in the classical-programmatic genre.


He is the author of the widely used college level text: A Beginner's Guide to the Classical Guitar, of which one online reviewer wrote, “Mr. Goodman has created the ultimate introduction to the classical guitar.”


He has authored numerous books including Flamenco Legacy, a collection of authentic 20th century flamenco music, and guitar ensemble transcriptions of such composers as Antonio Vivaldi, Georg Friedrich Handel and Johannes Pachelbel.

 

Among his compositions are Sextet for Winds and Strings, a Song Cycle for Soprano and Tenor, String Quartet #1 and numerous works for classical guitar.   He has also composed and performed music for feature films and radio.

 

He taught classical guitar for many years at the University of California at Los Angeles, and during 2009 was a guest professor of music at Santa Monica College.

 

He received his Master of Arts degree from Occidental College, where he studied composition and theory with Richard Grayson and Robert Gross.  His guitar studies were with Theodore Norman.

 

As a performer he has performed at colleges and universities throughout the United States, and his European tours have included appearances at the American Embassy in Vienna, the Vienna Conservatory, and the Salzburg music festival.  Recitals in Wales and England included a solo recital of 20th Century works for B.B.C.
