Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

I enjoy teaching people what they want to learn. If they have specific interests, I will show them how to get the results they want. If a general musical education is desired, I will make suggestions as to what would be good for them. With over 35 years of teaching experience, I have found many different ways to communicate how and why the whole thing works on different levels.

About Mark

I have played on tour with several professional bands, playing rock, pop, blues, African, metal, and country. I now perform live in various bands and record original music as often as possible. My music has gotten airplay in many countries. I started playing guitar at age 9, and recorded 2 si

I've been teaching Bass for 20 years. I bring a joy and excitement to teaching music. I structure my lesson so students learn music they are interested in.

Within the first few lessons, beginner students will be able to play a song all the way through and as time goes on you'll be able to play solos and develop your technique.

I specialize in Pop, EDM, Rock, Blues, Heavy Metal, Jazz and Classical music. typically use Hal Leonard and Mel Bay books, and have the following tools available for your lessons:

2 Fender practice amps
Electric guitars
Steel String Acoustic guitar
Nylon String Acoustic Guitar
Electric Bass Guitar
Ukulele

I love working with students of all ages, kids to adults, and all experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I teach every student the technical skills and applied theory necessary to work in any contemporary style on guitar. I use the "Be better than you have to be" approach. Want to be the best on a bad day? Be better than your chosen style requires. I studied classical and jazz in order to excel at rock, folk and blues.
You will learn to read music and charts for guitar, as well as movable scale patterns, movable chord forms, and how to apply it all to master the fretboard.
Have you hit a road block? I can help. Are you brand new and want to be sure you understand the instrument completely? I can help.

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.
Fred Chin
First lesson. Marc was great
Chris
I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

"My 7-year-old daughter started guitar lessons in March 2014 with Calvin as a beginner. He immediately engaged her by finding out her favorite songs and using those songs as very effective teaching tools, with such patience and enthusiasm. She has been learning to read music and play, and she's come so far already due to his incredible talent and his way of being able to break things down to teach them in a way that really reaches her! He's also very reliable, always on time. I couldn't be happier with Calvin's teaching, and I highly recommend him!"
