Luke Trimble is not only an amazingly talented guitar teacher, but he also is a gifted - and patient - teacher. Over the last year and a half, I was fortunate to spend one hour a week with him learning to play some of my favorite songs and also some I'd never heard but enjoyed learning. Playing guitar brings joy to me, and did so during a really rough time in my life. I am thankful for the time I've had with Luke. I'm leaving Hawaii for a job in the mainland and I know finding someone as wonderful as Luke to teach me while I am away from my home state is a Herculean task. He is irreplaceable.

Aloha, my daughter (11) and I have been taking lessons with Luke for several months now. We are both beginners. We can both now read music and play several songs that are enjoyable, recognizable and fun. Luke is an excellent people person and always very encouraging. I have always wanted to be able to pick up the guitar and play a few songs and already I feel confident in doing so. My daughter has taken off with her playing. Relating to an 11 year old and her mother is a tricky thing; but Luke does it so well. Luke is an extremely talented classical guitar player, but he brings it down to basics for us. We learn a new and fun song almost each class. Luke comes to our house, which is so convenient and easy for us. If you are thinking of taking up the guitar, give Luke a call. You are welcome to ask me any further questions.

Luke Trimble is an exceptional guitar teacher! Our daughter began taking lessons from him when she was only 7 years old and at 9 years old, she's able to play & sing many amazing songs! She just performed for our neighborhood party & did a great job! She's been so blessed to learn from Luke, as he's an incredibly patient & dedicated teacher who personalizes instruction to fit the needs & interests of his individual students. We highly recommend Luke & know that those lucky enough to receive instruction from Luke will receive the best!

Luke sent me this yesterday which is perfect as today is the anniversary of Granados' death. The Kailua Guitar Duo (Luke Trimble & Stephan Kane) play Intermezzo: from the Opera Goyescas, by Spanish composer Enrique Granados (1867–1916). Here's a blurb from Luke: "Commissioned by the Paris Opéra and written in 1915 by Spanish composer Enrique Granados. "Goyescas" is an opera in one act and three tableaux, based on themes from his most famous piano...

Commissioned by the Paris Opéra and written in 1915 by Spanish composer Enrique Granados. "Goyescas" is an opera in one act and three tableaux, based on themes from his most famous piano suite.

The onset of the First World War forced the premiere to be relocated to New York and was first performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City on January 28th, 1916.

The success of the Met premiere of "Goyescas" led indirectly to Granados's death. He was invited by President Woodrow Wilson to perform a piano recital at the White House, causing him to postpone his return to Spain. Granados and his wife lost their lives on March 24, 1916 when their ship, the French steamer Sussex, was torpedoed by a German U-boat in the English Channel.

Transcription for Two Guitars by Richard Pick
Stephan Kane plays a 2009 Eric Sahlin guitar.
Luke Trimble plays a 1991 Dake Traphagen guitar.

"This is an exquisite album that deserves repeated listening... Highlights the breathtaking musicality and versatility of both musicians as well as the beauty and power of Johanson's compositions."

Minor 7th is a great website, reviewing the best in non-mainstream acoustic guitar music.
