Finbarr Malafronte first began playing the guitar at age 7 and was accepted into Chetham’s school of music in Manchester at the age of 13. Upon acceptance to this world-renowned school, Finbarr received tutelage from English maestro Gordon Crosskey.

In 2004, Finbarr went to study at the Peabody Institute, USA entering the highly prestigious studio of Manuel Barrueco. There, he completed his Bachelors and Masters degree in an accelerated 5-year performance program.

Finbarr has performed at a number of important venues in England, including the Royal Exchange Theatre, the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal Northern College of Music as well as performing alongside legendary guitarist John Williams as part of the national youth guitar ensemble. Finbarr will be joining the Royal College of Music in 2011 where he has been accepted into the artist diploma program.
