Mitchell Newton is a freelance guitarist, composer and music tutor currently based in Springwood, NSW. Mitchell completed his Bachelor of music with Western Sydney University in 2016 majoring in composition but also studying classical guitar performance, music technology and musicology earning a spot on the Dean’s Merit List. He also holds an Associate Diploma in classical guitar performance.
Mitchell is an active member of the current performance scene both in and around Sydney and the Blue Mountains areas as well as less locally. Mitchell’s mastery of the classical guitar and incredible musical sensibility has allowed him a career in performing both for public concerts and for weddings and private functions (either for performance or background music). Although he primarily performs solo classical repertoire on guitar, Mitchell has experience and still performs in many settings within ensembles of almost all musical backgrounds. These include South American, Rock, Jazz, Metal, Blues, Folk music (of both Western and Eastern cultures) and more contemporary popular music. As well as performing in public concerts and for weddings and private functions Mitchell is available for private recitals for those interested in a more intimate musical experience, these can be organised for almost any location.
As a composer, Mitchell draws upon a wide variety of sources for inspiration including all of his experience performing many differing styles of music but also interests in science, visual arts poetry and more. He writes for soloists as well as ensembles of all makeups and sizes, from small chamber groups and duets to large scale orchestral and choral pieces. Mitchell’s unique compositional style has won several awards and competitions.
Mitchell is also a very well regarded music teacher in the Blue Mountains, offering quality tuition in guitar (all styles including Classical, AMEB, rock, metal, blues, jazz, folk, pop, South American, flamenco etc.), music theory and composition. Lessons are offered to people of all ages and abilities.
