What people are saying about my–Emiel Stöpler’s–music:

I appreciated very much your guitar piece, “Guitar Suite in E”; it is lively, happy, far away from the sad and dim contemporary music. Keep on with your music!

Paolo Ugoletti, composer.


“The City Awakens” is a wonderful piece, Emiel–as fun to play as it is to hear! I hope it will have many more performances.

Mark Davis, guitarist, mandolinist and conductor.


The duo “Aragorn” (for guitar and violin) is a very well designed and balanced composition. A very nice addition to the repertoire.

The composition “Strings and Stuff” is a little unusual with the instrumentation of guitar and string quintet, but sounds good. The piece will certainly be well received by the audience, also because of the original instrumentation.

We really liked your playing, your arrangements and the professional way in which you presented yourself. […] We were especially happily surprised by your arrangements, and think it is definitely an great addition to the fingerstyle guitar repertoire.

Absolutely love it! I would love to try it on my piano.

I wonder why no one finds your music here…it‘s a gem. Very good!
