Watson is also an accomplished pianist and known for his transcriptions for guitar of piano masterpieces from the Romantic and 20th Century musical eras and for his contemporary scores and symphonic productions for modern dance troupes, traditional ballet, and theater.

 

He attended ASU Herberger Music and Art Institute for music education, is currently owner/operator of Watson Music Lessons, and has taught theory, technique, and performance for guitar, bass, and drums at Arizona's foremost music school, Arizona Music Academy, over 12 years.

 

Charles is a seasoned public performer, accomplished in the recording studio, has put out numerous CD albums, and is adept at sight-reading and writing scores on the fly. He performs at many community, public, and private events, music festivals, restaurants and corporate events, and heads up two Arizona based stage bands. Charles recorded his 2008 album with Universal Platinum Plus Records, Nashville, produced by Robert Metzgar and Tony Migliore, "Time for Change", with one of his bands, Charles Watson & Hollow Council.
