Andrew Shepard-Smith, classical guitarist, is currently on staff at Vincennes University in Vincennes, Indiana. He has studied lute and guitar privately and in masterclasses with Renato Butturi, Clare Callahan, Eduardo Fernandez, Oscar Ghiglia, Michael Howell, Franco Platino, Paul Reilly, and Benjamin Verdery, among others. A scholar of early music, Shepard-Smith enjoys spending his time researching rather than practicing, transcribing rather than concertizing. His collections of transcription anthologies include composers such as Thomas Mace, Girolamo Frescobaldi, and the Spanish vihuelists. In addition, he is currently transcribing and editing the complete piano works of Enrique Granados for solo guitar. He resides in Vincennes, Indiana with his wife Vanessa and daughter Emily.
