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. Now I am a bandleader and perform live in various bands and record original music as often as possible. My music has gotten airplay in many countries. I started taking guitar lessons

Mark is a great instructor. Chill dude and lots of fun to work with. Loads of musical knowledge, and a ton on handy tips. If you ask nicely, he'll even teach you to play the uke behind your back or with your teeth.

Mark is an awesome instructor who makes learning the ukulele fun. I feel like I've already learned so much in the 7 classes I've taken. He is patient, creative, and easy to learn from.

More than technique, I will teach you how to connect with people. Music is the art of communication. Being able to reach someone's heart, to feel what they feel, and to play what they feel is far more powerful than being able to play 16th notes at 160 Beats Per Minute.

Having played Jazz Guitar for 15+ years, graduated with a Music (Classical Composition) double-major from MIT, and performed at restaurants & large events such as Super Bowl Live, I will teach you the fundamentals to play any type of music you desire. I specialize in music improvisation and will show you how to learn songs quickly by ear. Also, I will show you what it takes to deliver a great performance for your audience.

Ultimately, my focus is on serving you. That means helping you become who you want to be and helping you express your true self through music. Together, we'll figure out what works best for you and what learning style helps you grow the fastest. And we'll have a lot of fun along the way!

Alongside the general guitar techniques and methods, I like to focus on the aspects that are important to acoustic specifically, such as chord voicings, alternate tunings, fingerstyle, and hybrid picking

About Christian

My name is Christian L. and I am a 29 year old guitar/music instructor in the Orlando area. My interest in guitar began when I was 12 years old and blossomed into a full time obsession about 3 years later when I started playing small gigs as a solo guitarist playing simple jazz and classical pieces

Christian is great. Excellent communication and knowledge of the guitar. Most importantly, his enthusiasm for the guitar is infectious. I'm very much looking forward to my next lesson. Highly recommended.
Dylan T.
A teacher of this caliber comes around once in a blue moon. His knowledge of the guitar and music is vast and he knows how to pass that on simply and effectively. He can take you where you want to go musically if you have the dedication. My creative potential has expanded beyond what I thought was possible. I am beginning to have a real experience of myself as a musician and the unfolding of my own music through the insight of his teachings. I definitely recommend learning from him!

Christian was super helpful and helped me get a better idea of how i want to learn. Thanks so much!

"Started taking lessons with Don at Imperial Guitar, and followed him to Walden and still take lessons from him today. My son started taking lessons at 12 from him, and still will resume after he returns from Basic.
Dons a phenomenal instructor- easy to follow, challenges you as a student, yet not so fast that you feel overwhelmed or disheartened by the new skills. He’s a gifted musician too, that loves watching his students reach the next level in confidence and skills. You couldn’t find a better , more committed instructor to your success if you tried.
Lessons are fun,"

He is a very skilled musician in his own right, but most importantly, he is very patient and presents the material in a way that I can grasp it.
The atmosphere is relaxed and I always look forward to me next lesson."

"David was our family's music teacher for the last 6 years. He taught my son piano, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and music theory and composition. He also taught my daughter piano. He is an excellent teacher. He is very good at approaching music from the student's level and growing with them by bringing in new theory or music when the student is ready. He is in no way intimidating and is very good at instilling a love of music. He has a warm and gentle nature and can relate to very different personalities. The only reason he is not still teaching our family is that he moved. I highly recommend him."

I also saw a recital of Mark's current students a few months ago and can attest to the wide diversity of students and musical styles he teaches. We heard beginners, folk, country, metal, you name it. It was a testament to his wide-range as an instructor and his ability to cater to each student's interests and abilities."
