Mark Mynett has been lecturing at the University of Huddersfield since 2006, where he is Senior Lecturer in Music Technology and Production and admissions tutor for the Sound Engineering and Music Production course. 

He has had an active interest in music since witnessing his first gig at the age of 12, swiftly followed by taking up the guitar and joining his first band shortly after. This eventually resulted in an extensive career as professional musician with six worldwide commercial album releases working with renowned producers Colin Richardson and Andy Sneap, and several years of high-profile touring. A natural progression of his long held passion and interest in the recording and production side of the industry saw Mark engineer, produce and mix the last two of these albums. From here, a six-year career as self-employed record producer within the indie, rock and metal genres commenced (see discography below), initially combining this work with gaining a BSc in Popular Music Production from Manchester University.

Away from lecturing and his work at Huddersfield, he has continued producing, engineering and mixing, and has recently collaborated on a number of projects with distinguished world-class Swedish producer Jens Bogren. Alongside these commitments to music production, Mark is frequently invited to write articles on the subject for various music technology publications, including Sound on Sound, Guitar World (U.S.) and Computer Music. Additionally, he is the author of Metal Music Manual, released in 2016 and published by Routledge; the world's first book on producing, engineering, mixing and mastering modern metal music.  

Mark is also a front of house engineer for live music. Highlights of 2010 include Download Festival, and Bloodstock Festival, as well as numerous shows in mainland Europe to 2/3,000 capacity venues.

Mark is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy and has a PhD in engineering, producing and mixing the contemporary metal genre.
