Here is a video of my playing J.S. Bach’s Prelude in D Minor.
Pipa is a versatile instrument that can play both Chinese and Western music. I frequently collaborate with pop and western classical musicians in events.
Wan and Macias
Formed while students of music at the University of California, Irvine, the Pipa and Guitar duo of Wan Yeung (Ngai Wan Yeung) and George Macias create a blend of music which bridges cultures, continents, and sounds.
George Macias started playing the guitar at the age of 14 where he was taught by his father. His formal studies began under Richard Flores at CSU Stanisalaus in Turlock, CA and he finished his degree in Music Education at New Mexico State University under Kerry Alt. Recently, George received his Master of Fine Arts in Guitar and Lute Performance at UC Irvine with John Schneiderman. He performs and teaches in Southern California.
Here is a video of my playing Nino Rota’s A Time for Us with guitarist George Macias.
Wan and Macias’s Clair de Lune and Spring: Allegro is now available on all major website!
