For over a decade Mark Newsetter has been teaching aspiring guitarists to fine-tune their mechanical and songwriting techniques. For as long as he’s been playing, he’s been developing his own approach to guitar mastery; He calls it his patented fretography method.
Newsetter is a musician and music teacher in the Richmond district of San Francisco. He was born in New York City in 1957 and by the age of 17 he was booking his first paid gig. In 1980 he moved to the bay area because he liked what it had to offer.
For the past year he has been teaching at a location called Balboa Guitars, which is located at 3942 Balboa Street. He also writes his own guitar books for his students which are available online for purchase.
