Edward Grigassy is a sought after guitarist and bandleader based in the Southeast Texas region.

Mr. Grigassy studied classical guitar with the legendary virtuoso Adam Holzman at the University of Texas (Austin), earning a Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1996. Mr. Grigassy then received his Master's Degree (1998) in Classical Guitar from the New England Conservatory in Boston, under the tutelage of world-renown guitar virtuoso Eliot Fisk.

Mr. Grigassy is skilled in many forms of music. Having traveled to Central and South America, he has absorbed various Latin American styles of guitar playing, including Mariachi, Bolero, Pasillo, Bambuco, Joropo, Vals, Argentine Tango, Bossa Nova, and Samba. While at the New England Conservatory he studied jazz guitar with Gene Bertoncini, perhaps the leading North American expert on Bossa Nova.

Mr. Grigassy is a full-time instructor for the guitar department at Bellaire High School, where his students participate in regular recitals and regional competitions. Bellaire's guitar program is one of the largest in the country with a total of 13 classes, or approx 320 guitar students, per day.

Mr. Grigassy has shared his musical journey with audiences, as a soloist, along with Rodrigo Gamboa in the Carnaval Guitar Duo, and in larger ensembles, throughout the United States and Central America. He has performed live and been featured on public radio in Austin and Houston. In addition to presenting solo and duo guitar, he also leads the Old School Swing Band and Latin Carnaval, each group specializing in upbeat dance music of the western hemisphere.
