They met and formed as a duo in the year 2000 while undertaking studies at the Australian National University School of Music, where they studied with renowned Australian guitarist Timothy Kain.
The Australian Guitar Duo has been broadcast on radio stations throughout Australia and the United States and was a prize winner of the chamber music division of the Australian Guitar Competition.
Mr. Boyd and Mr. Cordover both play hand-made Australian guitars, and in March 2012 are undertaking a national tour of Australia to release their debut CD Songs from the Forest.
