Kate Benessa, Classical Guitar

Katepainted guitar













Originally a classical guitarist, I now find myself exploring the world of the lute and other period instruments, as well as flamenco guitar and musicology. As Adjunct Faculty at Colorado State University and Front Range Community College I teach Music Appreciation, Music Theory, and Classical Guitar lessons, while maintaining a private guitar studio.

I am a Doctoral Candidate in Music History at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, and write CD reviews for The Lute Society of America Quarterly.

I accept all levels of students, from absolute beginners to those preparing for college auditions.  For information about lessons or my student guitar ensemble (Fort Collins Classical Guitar Collective) please refer to the headings to the left.

I also offer consultations for focal dystonia retraining.

Below is a website which contains the most comprehensive and impartial compilation of information about focal dystonia on the internet. Be sure to check it out!
