David Veslocki


Guitarist

Producer

Songwriter

American guitarist, record producer, and educator David Veslocki travels the world expressing his love for music and his passion for production. As the winner of the International Songwriting Competition, the Unsigned Only Songwriting Competition, and the Eliot Fisk Prize for Guitar, his enthusiasm has translated into success in many different areas. He has performed as a soloist with the Hartford Symphony, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, and with world-renowned composer John Adams. With an assortment of songs that he has written/produced/played cut on RCA Records, Atlantic Records, Sony Records, Kontor Records, and 300 Records, as well as many more that have collectively charted in the top 10 in over 50 countries on iTunes and Billboard charts, his guitar playing and production can be heard all the world over. His performances are showcased in commercials for Ancestry.com, films like “All About the Money” on Netflix, and shows like “Hot Date,” produced by Will Arnett as well as on countless other placements through Killer Tracks at Universal Music Publishing.

After graduating from Eastman School of Music, having been awarded a full scholarship, and as the first guitarist in their history to earn a classical and jazz double major Bachelor’s degree, David attended Yale University and earned his Master’s in classical guitar and during his Artist Diploma studied production also on full scholarship. Following his education, David toured with Francesca Gagnon and performed with Cirque du Soleil, starting off a career of touring that would later take him to Maui, Hawaii, Davos, Switzerland, Papeete, Tahiti, Edinburgh, Scotland, Seoul, South Korea, Montreal, Canada, Segovia, Spain and many other global venues. His music has been heard internationally on stations such as ABC, BBC, CBS, Animal Planet, NBC, Fox, Nat Geo, MLB, MTV, and VH1. He wrote and produced the anthem for the Dreamfields Festival in Bali, the campaign for Sperry shoes, a commercial for Pfizer, and has produced music and played guitar for leading music catalogues and jingle houses in NYC and LA including Killer Tracks Universal Music Publishing, Man Made Music, Found Objects Productions, Amp.Amsterdam, Human Worldwide, and many others. With a publishing deal with the Royalty Network and a distribution deal with Sony, his music has been heard across the radio in the US, Brazil, South Korea, Japan, Germany, and elsewhere.

As an educator, he has taught at Concordia Conservatory, 92nd Street Y, Conard High School, Hall High School, and is the founder of the Connecticut Suzuki Guitar Academy (CSGA). David and his students at the CSGA performed at Carnegie Hall in 2017 with Andrew York and traveled abroad to Spain to collaborate with Aflonso Aguirre Dergal at the Palacio Quintanar, where they performed with students from Segovia. The CSGA is rapidly becoming one of the most unique schools in the Northeast with shows at SubCulture NYC, at One World Observation Deck at the World Trade Center, and with performances at the Guitar Foundation of America’s competition that earned his students the ranking of second place in the world for classical guitar. David has also guest lectured at Baruch College, NYU, Trinity College, and the Mid-Maryland Guitar Festival on the topic of music production and classical guitar, as well as commissioned pieces from award-winning composers such as Andrew York, Javier Farias, Nick Revel, and Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon.

World Premiere of "Suite Electronica" receives standing ovation at the Mid-Maryland Guitar Festival


It was an honor to give a concert at the Mid-Maryland Guitar Festival and I am thrilled to say that as a result many more are coming because of new friends and connections made. I premiered “Suite Electronica”- a piece for guitar, cajón, Roli, Ableton, and Logic. I took a leap of faith and the audience met me on the other side. Imagination pays off in major ways. Thank you Scott Borg and Maryland!

Debut classical guitar Album


Bach Volume 1 is finally coming to life April 10 2018 on iTunes, Spotify,

Amazon Vinyl and CD! 

I can't remember a time when I wasn't working on this record. I learned my very first Bach piece as a child and was entranced by the streaming river of notes whose architecture was so magnificent it felt as if it were the entire universe. Throughout every stage of my life the music of JS Bach has deeply consoled, encouraged, informed and elevated me. My journey as a guitarist and a producer have come together to bring this record to life. Grab your copy on April 10. A portion of the proceeds will go to Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation as a gesture of preservation-a theme that goes hand in hand with performing the music of JS Bach-the top of the musical chain raising money for the top of the Animal Kingdom. The journey begins now!

-David Veslocki

David has an unmatched energy -Andrew York

David is a rare bread of guitarist who will excel in many musical arenas- Ben Verdery

David Veslocki plays with an extraordinary fire and a ceaseless vivacity -Nicholas Goluses

A Hugely Talented young man...David Veslocki perfectly captures the very soul of Bach -SimonsShorts

David plays with a solid, clean technique that is refreshing, passionate and musical. David’s playing is transparent and allows JS Bach to flow through it as clearly as the cinematography of this video -MonkEars

New video produced for "Doc" christopher lloyd at golden gala


New video produced for "Doc" christopher lloyd at golden gala


The greatest movies of all time (no pun intended) to me are the Back to the Future Trilogy. As a kid, I first saw the movie at just 5 years old. It had just come out on VHS and I watched it nonstop. I don’t think five year olds are supposed to watch Back to the Future, but I did. And rest assured I loved it. I fell in love with every aspect of the movie: Marty playing the electric guitar through Doc’s insane speaker system, driving an awesome Delorean car, traveling the space-time continuum and making everything right, and falling in love with his awesome girlfriend Jennifer. When I think about how this movie is so ingrained in my psyche it is undoubtedly and obviously instrumental in attracting the guitar so deeply into my life, why I love driving around my Delorean, why I am chronically getting these brand new awesome chances to enjoy these different lives as a producer, guitarist, school owner etc. Also it explains my passion for time traveling!

The night I met my beautiful girlfriend Elizabeth Randon there was a huge electrical storm in which lightning literally struck a transformer in New Canaan and sent the town out of power (true story!) (obviously similar to the clock tower being struck by lighting) we had dinner and fell in love. Since that night my life has been transformed into some alternative universe compared to what it used to be. It’s been what I always dreamed it could be. Every aspect has been booming. A few months ago Elizabeth (who is an amazing and very accomplished director) and I were asked to work on a big video production for the man himself “Doc”- Christopher Lloyd!

The video was about Doc growing up in the Waveny Park house. Who knew that was his house! The video would help raise money for Waveny Park- a place I love. We were told that once the final video was edited it would be approved by him and then shown to many guests at a giant party in December at his house with him. Until this moment in time I have kept this under my hat and it has been so hard. 

Last night was the gala at “Doc” Brown’s house and mine and Elizabeth’s video production was screened! I chilled with Doc all night, had a dinner fit for a time traveler, hooked him up with cigars- he LOVES cigars- and partied with him and even better I was the photographer for the night as well. I am sharing a bunch of these insane photos below. When I say this man has more stories than Gandalf and Dumbledore and Dr Xavier... there was nothing like sitting with him in his family estate and hearing them through the night. The place was decorated so well it LOOKED like time travel. Our video was screened and vey well received! And best of all- to preserve Doc’s house and Waveny Park- money was raised for a good cause... how incredible to be part of this beautiful night and cause and to fulfill a lifelong dream of meeting Doc. 

Today I will be watching the Back to the Future trilogy on repeat. That and hopping in my Dolorean and fixing the space-time continuum if anyone needs me. Shoutout to Pamela Randon and William Randon you guys are the GREATEST. Love you both.

SUZUKI GUITAR

A graduated approach 

I first came upon this method in my early twenties and through the talent of the students of Fairfield county. I swear, there is something in the water. This kids play beautifully and I know that through my new school they will grow into the next generation of incredible guitar players... the method is the most thorough for classical guitar, and I have learned so much through the SAA about how to really teach young people to become amazing guitarists.

STUDENT BODY

TESS, Fairfield County

There is a long lineage of great guitar teachers who came through Talent Education Suzuki School and trained these young stallions so well. Respect to all of you, and respect to Becki Chrisopherson who attracted a rich and diverse set of students to TESS. We are born out of TESS and carry on the torch of excellence from where we were born! 

THE FUTURE

Commissions, Summit, GFA and beyond

We are currently working with composers on new works for guitar including Nick Revel and Javier Farias on new programs of music. Now is the time to expand the repertoire for these children and guitarists everywhere. We are also planning our first Summit, with Alfonso Aguirre Dergal in Segovia next year which will feature the students of the CSGA in masterclasses, concerts and more. We are also planning on tackling the GFA and learning as much as possible from that experience!
