Name - Andrés Segovia (1893 - 1987)
Nationality - Spain
When Segovia asked to study the guitar his parents were less than supportive. At first he was forced to study cello and piano. Unable to find a teacher locally he continued his individual studies. His approach was different to the techniques of the day and superior in many ways including strumming, picking and attacks. He set out to prove the guitar was truly a instrument worthy of classical study. In over 75 years of teaching and performing no one can deny that he surpassed even his own expectations.
