Kenneth Meyer is an instructor of music at the Syracuse University Setnor School of Music.  He was the national first-prize winner at the Music Teacher’s National Association Collegiate Artist Competition and is regarded by the Washington Post as “a thinking man’s guitarist – he focuses on the inner structure of a piece…and plays with impressive gravity and power.” The Buffalo News has called him “impeccably articulate with superb technique." Registration appreciated.
