Berndt Leopolder, born 1961 in Hallein (Austria), is a guitarist, composer, arranger and a guitar teacher since 1989 at various music schools in Salzburg. From 1983 to 1991 Leopolder studied instrumental pedagogy (IGP 1 and IGP 2) at the „Mozarteum“ Music Academy Salzburg.
Through his many years of music school teaching, in which he played guitar, electric guitar teaching and leading various guitar ensembles, he knows about the technical possibilities of the guitar.
He, therefore, writes pieces that are individually tailored to the needs and requirements of the different players in terms of pedagogy and didactics. For many years he has been publishing his varied guitar literature in German-speaking countries.
