I'm a swiss guitarplayer and composer. In the seventies I started as a rock drummer before making the university degree in classical guitar.
After 40 years as a guitar teacher, musician, and composer, I now can look back on a rich repertoire of works for the guitar and the mandolin , with over 100 works printed by international publishers. These include about 250 solo pieces, 40 quartets, 12 trios and several guitar duos, works for guitar ensemble, chamber music with guitar, two concerts for mandolin orchestra, as well as several teaching books for the guitar and a theory textbook. My works today appear around the world as obligatory pieces at guitar competitions and on concert programmes. My pedagogical textbooks have become standards in guitar teaching. As a guest in several guitar festivals around Europe I conduct guitar orchestras playing my own works and give master classes. I made musical experiences as bandolim- and guitarplayer in Chõro and Tango groups as well as in classical chamber ensembles and as a soloist.I work as a lecturer at the Pedagogical College of the canton St. Gallen (Switzerland). Since 2016 my works are exclusively published in my own „Edition Kalimba“ www. editionkalimba.ch. My complete Spotify releases are available also as music scores. https://www.juergkindle.ch/
