Hey Reddit! I'm Mak Grgic, a classical guitarist from Slovenia with a Doctorate from USC. I've played at Disney Hall with members of the LA Philharmonic & will be touring through Europe for the next few months. AMA!
Edit: This has been so fun! I have to run to rehearsal soon, but will do my best to answer as many questions as I can when I return.
If you'd like to check out some of my music, here's my Youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/user/7guitarist
Talk to you all later:)
Excited to be doing my first AMA. I'm Mak Grgic, classical guitarist and faculty member at Mount St. Mary’s University. I was born in Slovenia but currently live in LA, having lived in Croatia and Austria before moving to the States. I was also a competitive at math in Slovenia and a European world champion at Shotokan Karate. (A thumb injury at 19 was actually what led me to focus solely on music). I've been written about in the LA Times, New York Times and Washington Post and have toured through North America, Asia, and Europe. Feel free to ask me anything about music, what touring is like, what a Doctorate in music requires, or even how to play a concert with a broken thumb:)
