            Marcelo Coronel was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1962. As a child he learned to sing simple Argentine folksongs while playing along with a guitar. The styles of urban music later exposed Marcelo to a world of new sounds. He eventually entered the School of Music at the National University of Rosario, where he formalized his musical education before graduating with an advanced degree in Music - Emphasis on Guitar. Paralleling his university course work, Marcelo studied harmony and counterpoint with the composer Dante Grela. As a performer Marcelo has participated in a number of popular and chamber music ensembles.
