Devin Sherman is a guitarist and teacher based in Bedford, Pennsylvania. As a musician, he is always building and honing his craft. The craft of music-making is his primary focus. Through a steadfast process of learning and refinement Devin continues to find meaningful opportunities to connect with his audiences.

He studied classical guitar with Matthew Slotkin (Mansfield University, Bachelor of Music), and Christopher Berg (University of South Carolina, Master of Music). While at the University of South Carolina, he performed for numerous University events including the award-winning Southern Exposure new music series, USC Wind Ensemble, Collaborations in Contemporary Art (Cica), and the New Voices series featuring works by USC's composition students.
