Classical guitarist, Max Brenner has found his niche in connecting with his audiences by developing a unique act which combines the beauty of Classical music and sophistication of jazz standards. Max's solo concerts and private performances leave his audience wanting more. Max released his first solo album in 2017 available on iTunes and Spotify.
Max made his debut in 2016 at the Ford Amphitheater performing the Bernstein Guitar Concerto with the Los Angeles Jewish Symphony. Since then, he has appeared all over the country and in Europe.
Max won first prize at the Diamond Bar Guitar Competition, was a finalist at the Pacific Guitar Festival and a semi-finalist in the 2017 Schadt String competition. He has attended the Hartt School of Music and is a graduate of USC's Thornton School of Music. Max has studied with legendary guitarists Pepe Romero, Christopher Parkening, Bill Kanengiser, and Scott Tennant.
Max is also the founder of The SoundFile®, a boutique nail file company that makes the most precise performance nail files and finishing papers in the world for serious classical and finger-style guitarists. It all started when Max was in Granada, Spain, the birthplace of the classical guitar where he realized that a nail file should feel just as important as the instrument. His goal was to create a line of precision nail files that could rival the great luthiers of the Spanish guitar, and he did.
Max is currently recording his second album of his arrangements of Jazz Standards. To be released December 2021
