About Mark

I am a full-time working drummer currently residing in Las Vegas. In addition to guiding up and coming drummers with their musical careers, I am working on music & soundtracks for film and television projects with platinum-selling recording artist Mark Slaughter. My drumming can be heard on Mark Slaughter'™s first-ever solo track, "Never Givin™ Up" Release March 18, 2014 on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play.

In April of last year I was inducted (for the 2nd time!) into the Las Vegas Rock Hall of Fame for my collaboration with "Ripside." I performed at the induction concert with fellow inductees
Xcursion (Mark Slaughter, guitar/vocals; Kelly Garni, bass guitar). A picture of this performance is included in my "photos & video" section.

Background:
I started playing snare drum at age 8. Two years later I got my first drum set and began studying with jazz great, Irv Kluger. I haven't looked back since. I started playing music in the Wm E. Ferron Elementary School band. In my junior year in high school I co-founded Dream - my first œpro gig. After high school, I joined the progressive-rock band "Ripside" and my journey into all things music began.

For beginners, we'll focus on basic techniques and simple songs to get you playing music as quickly as possible. We'll work at your level -“ and at your pace. And we'll have fun doing it.

Mark rocks!

Mark’s incredible skill as a drummer is only matched by his abilities as a teacher. In just a short time with Mark’s instruction, I have made vast improvements in my drumming. At my first lesson with Mark, he determined my skill level and what I sought to achieve with my lessons. Almost immediately, the fundamentals Mark showed me were translating into my drumming with my band. Mark has opened doors in my playing that I didn’t know existed. Mark is incredibly patient and really cares about ensuring I receive significant benefit from my lessons. Mark really goes out of his way to make sure I fully grasp everything he shows me. I would highly recommend Mark for anyone who wants to learn from a true master at his craft and from a teacher who takes pride in his students and his teaching. Thank you Mark!!

Mark Review

I have had many different types of music teachers through out my life and Mark is by far the best. He is very serious about helping his students do what they want to do. I had specific goals I wanted to accomplish. Mark took my goals seriously and did what he could to help me understand the techniques to be a good drummer. He broke things down in to little steps that helped me to practice on my own and figure specific drum patterns out, He gave me the tools to improve myself as a musician, Mark did not have to but he chose to put a lot of his own time in to teaching me what I wanted to learn He obviously cares about his students and takes them seriously. I highly recommend him to any future students

Jonathan B.

Las Vegas, NV

About Jonathan

All of my past experiences lead into my real passion: Teaching. Whether it's conducting throughout Europe or singing as featured soloist with the Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra and Oregon Symphony, I use past experience to teach students about musical and healthy singing techniques. I am currently a Doctoral candidate at UNLV. I am excited to incorporate new instructional techniques into my teaching that I learned from conventions and coursework.

Most of all, I believe that singing should be a fun expression of yourself. It should be an outlet for creation no matter the skill or age level
of the singer.

I hold a Master of Education degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where I specialized in Secondary Vocal Music. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music (Vocal Performance and Choral Conducting) from Oregon State University. I am an active choral director and singer in the Las Vegas Valley and sing opera semi-professionally.

*** Lesson Details ***
Breathing is the key to singing and speaking. After a few months in my studio, a student will know how to sing healthfully and on the breath. If a student wants to focus on more popular styles like rock, pop, or country, I can instruct you on the best ways to maintain vocal health and increase the power, range and agility of your voice. If a student wants to sing in one of the major Classical languages (Italian, German, or French) I have extensive training in the pronunciation of each.

I have taught singer/songwriters how to convey their creative images. I have also taught adult singers how to contribute more of their own sound to their community or church choirs. All doors are open for a healthful singer!

*** Studio Equipment ***
extra room with piano, recording equipment, seating

*** Travel Equipment ***
All a student would need is a piano or keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Classical and operatic voice, popular genres including Rock, Pop, and Broadway.

*** Choir Opportunity ***
Check out the Battle Born Chorale for the choir that I conduct here in Las Vegas.

My granddaughter has been taking lessons with Miss Cindy for approx. 1 year.
Her first performance (recital), she got a superior rating and was highly encouraged to continue. This performance was held at UNLV and she received no points, I think because she wasn't yet eligible for points. She had not been playing very long.
Her second was held at same location was the NFMC Junior Festival on 3/07/15. She again received a superior rating, with more encouragement. This one, she did receive points. I'm still not sure how that works. I'm always just so happy to hear her and Miss Cindy play together!
I attribute all of this to Miss Cindy and her wonderful understanding not only of the piano, but of how to teach young children. And I believe she tailors all lessons to that particular child's needs and wants. Miss Cindy makes the lessons incredibly fun and is so very gentle with constructive criticism, that my granddaughter really wants to do her very best every time. And, she understands how very important it is to practice because she aspires to play as well as her teacher!
She can't wait to go to her lessons, and can't wait to show the family what she has learned.
Honestly (I play myself), if you are looking for a classical piano teacher, Cindy Jihyun L. should be your first choice. Even if it's a bit more of a drive than you want, Miss Cindy is the epitome of a Classical Pianist! She is well worth the time, and so worth the cost of lessons.
Here's the trick. Make sure your child practices, and that it isn't drudgery. Don't choose the piano for your child. Let your child choose the piano. And choose this teacher. I promise, you'll be glad you did.

Because of my lessons with Cindy J over the past 6 months, I was able to perform in a recital and play 3 pieces! This is really a first for me, even though I've been playing many years. She really gave me the confidence and the skills to make this happen and I loved it.

She is excellent and teaching a student how to "feel" the music and make it meaningful. I get so much more joy and satisfaction from my playing than I ever have before.

6 Tips for Singing and Playing the Piano at the Same Time
Artists like Billy Joel and Elton John may make it look effortless, but singing and playing the piano at the same time takes time and practice to truly master! Understandably, it’s difficult because you’re multitasking by "playing" two instruments simultaneously – your voice and the piano. It’s easy to lose concentration on one, while the other goes a little off; if you focus on your voice, you might mess up the timing with your fingers, and should you pay too much attention to the piano key
