About Michael Daily
Michael Dailey started playing guitar at the age of five. His first public performance followed three years later and he has been performing professionally since the age of fourteen. Mr. Dailey was self taught in those early years and did not start his formal training until he was in his early twenties due to the lack of quality instructors. Miguel Bernal, a long time student of Andrés Segovia, was his first true classical guitar teacher. He also studied with Tom Sheeley and had several private lessons with many well know guitarists including Andrés Segovia, Pepe Romero, Christopher Parkening and Manuel Lopez Ramos. Mr. Dailey has performed in every state in the US except for Hawaii and has also performed in Central and South America, Canada, and Western Europe. He moved to Fort Worth in 1986 and has been a central figure in the development of the classic guitar in Fort Worth ever since. Mr. Dailey is currently on the faculty of Texas Wesleyan University and Tarrant County College Northwest and is the owner of The Guitar Studio.
