Alan Rinehart

Alan Rinehart has made many contributions to the guitar world as a performer, teacher, and music editor. Completing studies at Western Michigan University and a Professional Music Training Diploma from Vancouver Community College, he studied lute repertoire and technique in London, England at the Early Music Centre with Anthony Rooley, Jakob Lindberg, and Emma Kirkby. His study of historical performance practices led to the ability to play the lute with a softer 'no nail' sound and the guitar with a standard concert guitar technique.

In 1980 he gave a critically acclaimed London debut ("consstently clean and musical...he has a pleasantly relaxed stage manner which won over the audience right from the word go". Guitar International magazine). In addition to many concert recitals he has performed at international guitar festivals in Toronto and Quebec and on CBS radio and TV.

Alan Rinehart is also a co-founder of The Vancouver Guitar Quartet which has become a regular part of the Vancouver and Western Canadian music scene. The Quartet has recently released its debut recording "Estampas" (VGQCD98882).

Alan Rinehart has prepared the first guitar performance edition of the Moscow lute manuscript of Sylvius Leopold Weiss for Editions Orphee and a two volume edition of the works of the Romantic Spanish Antonio Gimenez Manjon for Chanterelle Velarg.

He has been a faculty member of the music schools at the University of British Columbia and Vancouver Community College since 1983.
