Through his performances, teaching, and artistic directorship, Dr. Daniel Acsadi is creating an exciting new direction for the classical guitar. Guided by his wide-ranging interests and Hungarian-American heritage, Dan's repertoire and research link the great musical traditions of Europe and the Americas. Since winning his first competition at the age of fifteen, Dan has performed throughout the United States both as a soloist and in chamber ensembles. Efforts to introduce the classical guitar to a wider audience have taken him to hospitals, assisted-living centers, libraries, churches, and synagogues. As the director of the Boston Classical Guitar Society, Dan is striving to build a growing community through concert series, educational initiatives, and community activities. He holds degrees from the New England Conservatory and Cornell University. Dan's principal teachers have included Eliot Fisk, Pablo Cohen, and John Hall. He has performed in master classes for Leo Brouwer, Manual Barrueco, Eduardo Fernandez, Adam Holzman, Bruce Holzman, and Renato Butturi. Dan maintains a teaching studio in Newton and is on the faculty of Bridgewater State University, Longy School of Music of Bard College, and Tufts University.
