Matthew Lech – Guitar / Piano

Matthew Lech obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degree for Guitar Performance at Saint Xavier University under Shawn Salmon, and Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts under Denis Azabagic, respectively. At these universities, Matthew had the opportunity to perform as a soloist, as well as, in the guitar ensemble, jazz band and combo, mixed chamber groups, and accompanying other musicians. Matthew’s favorite music to play is from the Baroque Era (1600-1750) even though there is no music for modern guitar from that time. He is currently preparing some arrangements of Domenico Scarlatti’s keyboard sonatas for a solo recital.
