Campbell Ross

Composer, Performer

Born: 1979


Campbell Ross is a guitarist, composer and teacher who lives in Brisbane, Australia. He developed a passion for the guitar at an early age and almost immediately began writing for the instrument.

Raised in New Zealand, Campbell won the Christchurch Guitar Competition before embarking on tertiary study at the Wellington Conservatorium of Music under the tutelage of Matthew Marshall. After completing his Bachelors Degree in Performance he moved to Brisbane to continue his study under Julian Byzantine at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music Griffith University, completing a Masters in Performance.

While still a very active performer, Campbell is also a respected composer. His talent for composition has been formally recognised a number times including placing at the APRA Professional Development Awards and the New Zealand Classical Guitar Composition Competition.

Campbell's most recent compositions have been fuelled by a desire to produce a fresh and invigorating style of music that challenges the more traditional perceptions of classical guitar, while extending the range of quality music emanating from the Asia-Pacific region.

Campbell is a highly sought after teacher in Brisbane having taught at both the Queensland Conservatorium at Griffith University and the School of Music at the University of Queensland. He is also a published author - his ever-increasing body of educational material for classroom guitar programs have been adopted by many schools across Australia.

"Third place went to Campbell Ross for his Two Dances – Rumba and Tango. Both were well-written, attractive pieces whose accessibility somewhat belied their sophistication." Lindis Taylor, November 17, 2011.
