Marc Maingard
(Luthier)
Maingard-built guitars are synonymous with international names like Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and Earl Klugh. His career as a luthier began in 1972 in Spain, where he worked as a musician by night and a restorer by day. He completed master studies in the USA with Martin, Gibson and Santa Cruz Guitar Co, for whom he still restores today in his Scarborough studio on the tip of Africa. Jonathan Crossley (winner AKTV) and a number of classical players have won competitions with his instruments, famous for their volume and projection.

Avril Kinsey 72 SOUTH AFRICAN COMPOSERS CREATE 320 PIECES for CLASSICAL GUITAR
Avril Kinsey
An enlightening talk and power point presentation with audio samples, including an extract from an historic Julian Bream performance of Prialux Rainier’s Dance of the Rain. The talk is based on Avril’s 308 page ground breaking Masters of Music research dissertation. The degree was awarded a distinction by the University of Cape Town in 2009. The talk was subsequently presented in London at the Royal Academy of Music and since then Classical Guitar Magazine UK has published a two–part series on this her most important work.
