Mark G. Las Vegas, NV

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. ...

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
Mark S. Las Vegas, NV

About Mark

I just turned 49, and have been playing electric bass and guitar since I was 14, and took up flute a few years, later, and eventually saxophone as well. I graduated from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 1985 with a Bachelors degree in classical guitar, and have been teaching guitar and electric bass for over 25 years. I'm an eclectic player who has studied and integrated many concepts from varying styles including classical, flamenco, jazz, blues, and rock, and I've developed a unique and highly effective teaching method that draws from and builds upon the CAGED system and other established successful methods. My approach to teaching emphasizes simultaneously learning musical concepts, knowledge and skills, and is a highly analytical approach that stresses simplifying, understanding, ...

Fantastic Teacher

Mark is a musical genius in my opinion. His patience level is far beyond any teachers in any learning environment I have encountered. He is very connected with my progress and puts 100 percent into every session with me. I feel very fortunate to have crossed paths with Mark and appreciate his time and knowledge he shares with me in a craft he is very passionate about. Fantastic straight forward honest individual. Won't find a better teacher in my opinion!

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 ...

Terri M. Las Vegas, NV

About Terri

At age nine I began piano and clarinet lessons and continued my music studies throughout high school and into college. I played in numerous solo and ensemble festivals, honor bands, piano recitals, adjudicated piano and soloist competitions, scholarship competitions and numerous concerts. I learned at a very young age that enthusiasm and creativity expressed by my teachers played an integral role in my motivation to succeed. My experience playing in band, orchestra, ensembles and as a soloist, gives me an enhanced ability to convey lessons in harmony either played between hands or in duets/ensembles. Because I also have a strong background in ballet and ballroom dance, I utilize these talents to reinforce time signature and rhythm lessons. It's amazing to see how my students transfer the

The Kindest Piano Teacher You Can Get

Ms. Miller is a one of a kind piano teacher. The stereotypical piano teacher would be portrayed as an enraged perfectionist who hits your knuckles with a ruler when ever you play a single wrong note. Ms. Miller couldn't be any more different. Her kindness is a key factor to her teaching style. A student doesn't want to be any less than perfect. She shows so much enthusiasm when you play even the easiest song correctly. As well as this, her teaching style is phenomenal. Each new subject is taught in such detail so that we can fully comprehend what we are playing. All I can say is that I hit the jackpot with my piano teacher and that I hope that more piano-lovers will be able to experience her greatness.

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.

I have recently started lessons with Cindy after a long time without a teacher. I've been playing as an adult 14 years and have had many teachers. Cindy is by far the best I've ever had!

She is showing me new things so quickly which are making a huge difference in how my pieces sound, so that is very motivating. She is able to explain very clearly exactly how I can do something differently and then show me how.

Her knowledge of classical music is amazing. She is also able to play anything and use her own playing to demonstrate not only what I should do, but the different sounds one can produce by using different techniques.

She is truly a master, and I feel so lucky to have found her! I am having a wonderful time, and enjoying my piano so much more with her lessons.

My daughter, Imojinn, had her fantastic first piano experience with Miss Cindy. Her teaching style was fun and encouraging. She was very sensitive to how much learning Imojinn could handle each week. My daughter looked forward to her piano lesson each week so much so that she also took voice lessons from Miss Cindy. We miss Miss Cindy very much!

I highly recommend her both for piano and voice lessons.
