Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris01 Mark is an outstanding teacher - Highly Recommended
I contacted take lessons in hopes to better my soloing abilities and improve upon my theory. Mark Banning is the real deal. The man can play like no other and is undeniably knowledgeable in the realm of guitar. I have been playing since elementary and was once taught by Mark. It's great to have stumbled upon his profile on the take lessons site to be reunited with such an awesome teacher.
-Extremely knowledgeable in countless styles of guitar
-A varied and highly organized curriculum that keeps things interesting
-I have applied everything that Mark has shown me thus far.
-Apart from his goofy delivery of information it is clear that Mark has a professional side to him as well. Don't get me wrong. The guy is hilarious.
-Mark tracks every player's status in a binder so he knows exactly where they left off. I can feel and see my progression after every lesson.
-Mark will motivate you. He is not there to simply collect funds. The man genuinely cares about your playing ability.
-The information is always clear
-Allows time for questions each lesson
-I have only needed to reschedule once with Mark because he had a gig down south.
-In-house studio with a number of amps/guitars to choose from
Get lessons from Mark Banning. You WONT regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RickP3 I have received more theory and practical knowledge than I thought possible. His approach makes a lot of sense to me and it's interesting and fun. He took two songs off my phone, played them back nearly perfectly, wrote them down for me, gave me blues lesson and all of a sudden I knew more about the bar cords than I did over 30 years goofing off. I got a smile.

Mark is a very good teacher. He helped with learning strumming and chords. Wrote chord charts and strumming patterns for me. Answered all my questions and even came up with a score for some music I wanted to play.
