Album Notes
'S Wonderful is a debut professional album, of classical guitar solos performed by Miles McConnell. The album features music by J.S. Bach, Mauro Giuliani, Julian Arcas, Manuel de Falla, Manuel Ponce, Heitor Villa-Lobos, George Gershwin, and Aaron Copland.

Gershwin himself created arrangements of his own tunes for the piano, and Miles' transcriptions are based on those original arrangements. Miles also created transcriptions of the following works that Aaron Copland originally wrote for piano: 'Down a Country Lane', and 'The Young Pioneers'.

Miles began learning to play guitar at age five, with his father as his first teacher. In 2005, he received his Bachelor of Music degree from Florida Southern College. in 2007, he received the Master of Music degree from the University of North Texas, and in 2010 he was awarded the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Guitar Performance from the University of Wisconsin. He studied with Mark Switzer at Florida Southern, Tom Johnson at UNT, and Javier Calderon at UW. Since 2013, Miles has studied privately with Denis Azabagic in Chicago.

Miles is active as a performer, both as a soloist and a member of various ensembles. In January 2015 he presented a full length concert at the Portage, WI Center for the Arts. Miles has also performed in concert at Clarke University and Loras College, in Dubuque, Iowa. In several of those recitals he was joined by Dr. Roy Carroll, performing works for guitar and organ. in the fall of 2014, Miles appeared in recital at Clarke University, with tenor SangIn Han, performing Adelaïde, Op. 46 by Beethoven.

Miles recorded this album using a Pinnacle Limited Edition model guitar made by Augustino Lo Prinzi.
