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.

Great teacher! He caught numerous hindrances to my technique immediately and I love that he incorporated theory from the beginning.
Gerard O.
I am 4 or 5 lessons in with Jared and I am truly and entirely thrilled with the progress I am seeing and the depth of guitar knowledge I have gained. Jared has a way of teaching that not only allows for actually playing right away but learning the foundations of knowing the guitar and music. I can see that this allows for not just playing "songs" but making music of my own. This is the freedom of "knowing" the guitar.

"I'm about to have my forth lesson with John and I must say he is an amazing musician and an amazing guitar teacher. In the last four weeks, John and I have been working on blues guitar licks. I've been playing at the same level for years. John has changed that for me immediately after our first lesson. He has made a huge difference in my playing and my approach to the guitar.

After I finish writing this review, I will be signing up for additional lessons.

Thanks John"

"Amazing guy. Really knows his stuff. You're not a good fit if you're not coachable as he'll show you the right way to play guitar (picking technique, how to hold the guitar, etc.). It feels super uncomfortable at first, but I can already tell that my guitar skills are going to blow past what I could do before these lessons. He also knows the instrument very well and can make recommendations on setup and other awesome gear."
