About Cale

I started playing the guitar when I was 12 years old. I was originally drawn to the instrument by the rock bands of the early 90s. As soon as I started playing it became my passion and I wanted to spend as much time as possible with the guitar. A few years later I began taking lessons with Vincent Bredice, who introduced me to jazz and classical guitar. 

In college and grad school my focus was on classical guitar, and I was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to travel throughout the U.S. and Europe to study with some of the most sought-after teachers in the world. I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degree in guitar performance from the University of Arizona, where I studied with Tom Patterson. In 2004, I was granted a Fulbright scholarship to spend a year studying at the Franz Liszt Hochschule in Weimar, Germany. During my time there, I had lessons with Monika Rost and Thomas Müller-Pering.  I received my doctorate from Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music in December 2013, majoring in guitar performance and minoring in music education and jazz studies.

Over the years, I have performed as a soloist and also with various groups throughout the U.S., Germany, and Brazil. Some recent highlights include a recital with my wife, harpist Megan Landfair, a performance with violinist Molly Christie in the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society Member’s concert, and performances as a guest soloist with the Taneycomo Festival Orchestra.

Last summer, my wife Megan and I moved to Haddonfield, NJ so she could start a new job as the manager of the Virginia Harp Center. Since then, I’ve been playing a few gigs in the area and building a studio at the Marlton Music & Arts. I teach classical as well as popular styles of guitar playing, and work with students aged 6 and up.
