Overview

Classically trained with years of performance and practical experience. I know how to help you make the music that you want to make. I am well-versed in nearly all music styles from classical to contemporary/pop. I am currently active in both piano accompaniment, vocal performance with the Pacific Chorale, and directing a very active north orange county community choir.

I recently completed my music credential and have graduate degrees in Education and Music.

I am especially gifted in teaching beginning piano, fundamental vocal production and dramatic presentation. I have extensive experience with the young and beginning acting student and can masterfully explain the dynamics of auditions and performing in the community.

*** Lesson Details ***
I focus on the individual student for curriculum and speed of progress. I utilize Bastien and other music curricula depending on maturity and ability. Within 3 months most students are performing simple songs successfully and within 6 months they have begun to master the more difficult 2nd and 3rd level. I believe in creating opportunities for the student to play in public and successfully perform by playing in small groups and bands. My acting students are taught through monologues and basic acting dynamics along with rehearsing through audition challenges and opportunities in the community.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very handy to use. Mark is very professional and sings well himself. In just a few lessons he's had a powerful impact on my singing because of the techniques he's demonstrated. February 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent piano teacher I have taken beginning piano lessons with Mark, and from day one I have felt comfortable. He is very professional, punctual, and efficient. He knows what he is doing, is very kind and patient in the process. He shares his shortcuts and tips to make each lesson the best possible. July 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great teacher, very skilled and passionate! Mark is great. He is working with our 10 year old daughter on singing. He plays piano while he has her sing. She loves her lessons and looks forward to them every week. He is teaching her the proper way to use her voice as well. We couldnt be happier with Mark! April 8, 2013
