BIOGRAPHY

Django Klumpp is a versatile musician with expertise in classical guitar. At Nazareth College, he teaches applied guitar lessons, group guitar methods, and advanced guitar courses. He completed a masters degree in performance and literature from Eastman School of Music under instruction by Dr. Nicholas Goluses, and holds two bachelor degrees from Mansfield University in both music performance and music technology, where he studied under guitarist Dr. Eric Carlin.

Django is an experienced performer, having performed multiple public solo recitals, chamber ensemble showcases, and concert presentations with an orchestra. He was awarded a Performer’s Certificate in Guitar from Eastman School of Music, and at Mansfield was chosen as one of the winners of Mansfield University’s Student Solo Competition in both 2017 and 2019, where he performed Joaquin Rodrigo’s Fantasia para un gentilhombre, and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Concerto No. 1 with the Mansfield University Symphony Orchestra. Django also performs as one-half of the “Silverwood Duo,” a flute and guitar duo with flutist Eric Bergemann.

Django is an avid teacher, having taught general strings through Mansfield’s community strings group, “Strings Project,” as well as teaching locally in the Rochester area at Penfield Guitar School, and Aria’s School of Music and Art. He was brought on as faculty at Nazareth College shortly after completing his masters degree.
