Bio:
Joseph Palmer began studying classical guitar at the age of fifteen in his hometown of Rockwall, Texas. His passion for music and dedication to the instrument quickly gained him recognition as one of the leading guitarists of his generation. He has traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad, being awarded a total of fifteen top prizes in international competitions, including the 2013 World Guitar Competition in Novi Sad, Serbia, and the Guitare Montreal International Competition.

In recent years, Joseph has developed a strong interest for connecting with new audiences through outreach performances. In this effort, he strives to develop more engaging concert programs and to communicate about music in ways that are more meaningful to diverse audiences. He is currently in collaboration with Austin Classical Guitar as outreach performing artist-in-residence, and gave interactive performances for nearly 50 public schools in the Austin, Texas area during 2015.

Joseph Palmer holds degrees in music performance from Columbus State University and the University of Texas where he is due to receive his doctorate in December. In 2013, he joined the faculty of Texas Lutheran University as part time guitar instructor. In addition, he has been running his own private studio of young guitarists in Austin since 2009.
