Hi, my name is Dr. Arturo Herrera,
I little about my academic background. I completed a Master’s Degree in Guitar Performance from CSULA in 2002. I then completed a Doctoral of Musical Arts from Claremont Graduate University under the tutelage of Jack Sanders and composer Peter Boyer. My field of studies included Music Composition, Commercial Music, Music Theory, Music History, Arranging and Guitar Performance.
I have been involved in many musical projects around the Los Angeles and Las Vegas areas including performances and recordings of original music. I am currently working on recording new music with a rock-influenced Spanish band.
As a performer in numerous groups, I have played in numerous venues in California and Las Vegas as both a classical and rock guitarist. My influences include Agustin Barrios, The Who, Rush, Mana, John Williams, and Chet Atkins among many others.
Along with teaching guitar, I have worked as a public-school teacher since 1994, teaching Elementary General Education, Elementary Music, and High School Guitar. I have recently completed a Master’s in Educational Administration degree.
