The Guitarist
Micah Dunn began playing classical guitar at the age of 5.  At the age of 14, he made is profesional debut with "Stylin'" in November of 1991, in conjunction with the Lake Tahoe Music Teachers Association.  After studying with Richard Savino, the Professor of Guitar at Sacramento State, he was accepted to the CSU Guitar and Lute Festival at the age of 16.  The California State University Guitar & Lute Festival normally accepted students from the college level and up, so this was an honor for him.  Before then, Micah had no idea how rich and wonderful the classical guitar world was.  At this festival, he had the opportunity to study with some of the world’s greatest guitarists and composers.  At the age of 22, Micah was one of 10 guitarists from around the world accepted to the Aspen Music Festival, where he studied with Lily Afshar, D.MA, and Sharon Isbin.  Micah has played in masterclasses and studied privately with Andrew York, Scott Tenant, David Tannebaum, Marc Teicholz, Jeremy Jouve, Sharon Isbin, Lily Afshar, and Richard Savino.  Micah received both his Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree in Music Performance from UNR.  He was featured as the guest soloist with the Ruby Mountain Symphony in November of 2004, and has performed with the Foundation Orchestra.  Currently, Micah has been arranging all six of the Bach Cello Suites for guitar in the original cello tuning.  He is studying with Marc Teicholz, a professor at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
The Cellist
At the age of 10, Micah began to study cello with Rita Whitaker-Haun.  Since there was no guitar program at his schools, he participated in the after school orchestra program.    After one year of playing, he was actively participating in the school orchestra progams and was accepted in the Junior Honor Orchestra.  At the age of 13, Micah earned the principal cellist position in the J.H.O.  In high school, he was accepted in the Honor Orchestra for all four years, and also was accepted in the All-State Orchestra for three of his four years.  In his senior year of high school, Micah was the principal cellist in the Reno Philharmonic Youth Symphony’s founding year. While attending UNR, Micah played in the UNR Orchestra and had the privilege to study cello with John Lenz.  Micah has also played with the Ruby Mountain Symphony and the Foundation Orchestra.
In addition to guitar and cello, Micah has studied voice with John Fay for three years.
