Canadian-born classical guitarist and composer Jeff Gosselin began his studies on the guitar at the age of 16, under the instruction of Canadian virtuoso Ben Schenstead. Largely self-taught, he developed his craft over the next 25 years. Jeff is currently studying with the
great American Master Scott Ouellette. In 2006 he released his debut recording 'Homage',
a collection of Spanish guitar masterpieces. In 2016 he released his second CD of original works, entitled 'Notes From Existence.'
Jeff is active as a member of the Regina Classical Guitar Society (RCGS) as a performer, provincial consultant, board member, and Marketing Director. His performances are a
mixture of classic Spanish as well as original compositions. Through his many appearances,
Jeff has communicated the exuberant sound of the classical guitar to a wider grassroots audience. He now divides his schedule between charity events with the Regina Classical Guitar Society, and local concerts.
In addition, Jeff continues to dedicate much of his time to the creation of new solo works
for the guitar. Recently his compositions 'Transistor' and 'Paper Autumn' have been performed by Dr. Brad Mahon (of the renowned Oberon Trio), as part of his 'Prairie Series' concert repertoire. Jeff's compositions explore new avenues of complexity, and seek to challenge
the listener through a continual, changing landscape of ideas.
