About Mark

Hello!! My name is Mark and I am YOUR teacher! (YOU just don’t know it yet)

Simply put, I love music… every facet of it, in fact! Music has been a huge part of my life! From starting on alto and tenor saxophones as a kid and then learning acoustic and electric guitars, to ripping scorching solos on stage with Chris Cagle and singing background vocals with Reba McEntire, music has always inspired me! Now I hope to inspire you with creative, challenging, and fun lessons!!

Long story short, (too late) ☺ at a young age I dove head first into music, but more importantly, the electric guitar! I learned everything about them from how they are constructed to how magnetic pickups make sound come out of an amplifier. Then came the true challenge… I started meeting ...

Learned and improved my writing

I took songwriting lessons with Mark. I was looking to get to know the form and tools of songwriting to know what people were looking for and to make my songs better. He helped me out so much with music theory as you need that behind all songs and with helping me create some great songs. As i look back at my songs from when I started to now, they have grown and adapted so much for the better. My lyrics flow so much better and I know what people are looking for in the music industry as I have some great songs to show from these lessons. Mark is very smart guy in all music aspects, if your looking for lessons from guitar to songwriting to music theory, I would definitely recommend him. If you are willing to put in the time to learn and get better he will make sure of it!!!

I learned A LOT from Mark!!

Mark is a really knowledgable teacher who cares about your goals and progress. He is also a very patient and laid back person, (which made me feel better about trying new techniques since I was an absolute beginner when we started) and he REALLY took my guitar playing far. Now I understand music theory and how to apply it to my songwriting AND how to improvise over the chord changes in my songs. I'd also have to say he is very humble for how good of a guitar player he really is. You can learn a lot from Mark, and I still use and go through his curriculum. I would definitely recommend him to other students.
P.G. B. Carthage, TN

Focus on both music and lyric content. Study the three main musical concepts in songwriting: melody (the brain), rhythm (the body) and harmony (the heart). Work on writing our own material and incorporating the techniques of the greats (i.e. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, or whatever artist / band that we are interested in emulating).

About P.G.

I have been playing guitar, writing songs and studying music for over 18 years. In 2003, I graduated from Boston College with a degree in Music composition and theory. While living in Nashville (2003-2012), I worked with Music Row songwriters, publishers and studio musicians. I have also produced records for independent artists and currently write music for TV, radio and films. I got married in 2012, moved to Fort Worth, TX and shortly thereafter began teaching. In 2014, my wife and I moved back to Middle TN. I love to teach and work with students who want to learn. Basically, I like to make music and have fun!

Outstanding Guitar Teacher

I've been wanting to learn to play the guitar for a long time and finally decided to go for it. I chose P.G.B based on his extensive music background and am glad I did. He's energetic, easy going, adjusts to your likes and learning style, provides excellent feedback, and motivates you be excited about learning the guitar. I've easily memorized a handful of chords and several songs already after only two lessons and we were even jamming in the second lesson. Can't wait to see how I'm playing in a month or two from now. I highly recommend him if you're wanting to learn guitar, he's makes it easy and a lot of fun. .

About Leena

I began singing when I was three years old, started piano lessons at age ten and have been singing, playing, writing and teaching for more than ten years. I graduated from California State University, Northridge with a Bachelor's degree in Music Industry Studies. While my focus was vocal performance, I never stopped playing, writing or listening to music. I continued my own studies of piano, world music, music theory and music history. I began teaching private piano lessons in 2002 and added voice lessons to my services several years later.

During my studies at Cal State, I worked on two projects for the CTVA (Cinema and Television Arts) department. One was as the music coordinator for a video documentary and the other was recording my first music video. Since then, I have ...

Great teacher and loads of fun!

I've been taking lessons from Steve for almost 8 years (that in itself should say much about his instruction!). He is able to teach whatever category of music to any person at any level be it acoustic, electric, or theory. I would highly recommend Steve for any age group and for the novice or experienced player wanting to improve. After the many years learning from Steve I wouldn't think of taking lessons from anyone else!

Fantastic Teacher!

I tried to play guitar on my own for years, but until I started taking lessons from Steve, I never really made any progress. Steve is a great teacher that has both the natural ability to teach and play, which rare in the music lesson world. Don't waste your time and money taking lessons from someone that can't deliver what you are looking to accomplish. I believe you will be very pleased with your guitar progress if you decide to take lessons from Steve; I have personal knowledge of at least five persons of all ages taking lessons with him now and many others he has helped with various playing issues. If you need guitar lesson, Steve's your guy.
