Mohit Lauer Dubey is a young classical guitarist and physicist in the making from Los Alamos, New Mexico. A student of Roberto Capocchi at New Mexico School for the Arts and Stephen Aron at the famous Oberlin Conservatory (Ohio). Mohit has played concerts across the world - from Santa Fe to Italy to Jordan. As the son of Indian and German scientists, Mohit is excited about using music as a means of expression and storytelling across cultural differences. He will spend his Winter Term tracing his Indian roots as well as performing music for different communities within India. For the first half of his project, he will perform classical guitar at multiple concerts organized by the US Embassy American Center, a local music supporter and philanthropist and a women’s empowerment group in New Delhi and Lucknow. Mohit will spend the latter half of his trip giving master classes at local schools in Hyderabad and studying Carnatic music with Dr. Karaikudi Subramanian at the Brhaddhvani School in Chennai.

His concert will include music from every era of the guitar and as many continents as he can get his hands on (Bach, Regondi, Dyens…). He might even include Bhajans, arranged for guitar.

He completed his LTCL in 2010 and achieved his Master of Music in Piano Performance with distinction at the Birmingham Conservatoire in the UK. Anand got into the prestigious Franz Liszt Academy of Music, Budapest. There he studied under professors Jeno Jando and Dr. David Ball, the only Indian so far to have achieved this distinction.
