Guitarist and composer Chris Rupert teaches all styles of guitar and composes music (primarily) for classical guitar. He began playing the guitar at age 13, but didn’t begin his focus on the classical guitar until age 17. He studied jazz harmony with Jim Howard while attending Wilfrid Laurier University and received his A.R.C.T. in classical guitar performance at age 25, when he was awarded a gold medal for achieving the highest mark in Canada.
Chris’s compositional credits include the soundtrack for the documentary H.M.S. Detroit - The Battle Continues, as well as an album of classical and steel string guitar music entitled Not That Far Away. His piece Prelude for Guitar and Flute has been published by Columbia Music, and his Postlude (from Suite #1 for Guitar) was listed as a competition piece for the Canadian Contemporary Music Festival. He continues to compose new music for solo guitar, as well as duets with instruments such as ‘cello, harpsichord, flute, and synthesizer. He has also written music for charango.
Chris also performs on electric, steel string, and classical guitars on a regular basis.
