He has been heralded for “precise and prodigious technique” by Acoustic Guitar Magazine, “technical wizardry” by Los Angeles Timesand “soulful musicality” by Malibu Times. Whether performing original compositions, traditional classical repertoire, or exploring diverse musical forms, Hirschelman seeks to find connections that stimulate the imagination.

As a composer, Hirschelman’s compositions reflect a fusion of musical influences. They range from classical to metal, creating a unique style of hybrid music hailed by critics and audiences alike.
