Sam Yoder

Guitar, Recording Arts

Sam’s academic background includes majors in guitar (while also studying piano and voice), as well as culinary arts (a life-long interest) and business administration. He even studied privately with a former student of Segovia, considered by many to be the greatest guitarist ever.

Sam’s says his teaching philosophy is simple – “To make music fun and relevant to daily living, to learn the instrument and consider all options in styles and genres.”

In 2004, Sam co-founded Allegro Community School of the Arts, where he has served as the school’s Executive Director since 2012.

He is the owner/operator of Country House Studios, a commercial recording studio established in 1995.
