I teach blues guitar lessons for all levels, from beginner to professional. Many blues songs have identical chord changes. I can show you how easy it is to discern how to find the key to your favorite blues songs and jam along with them. I can show you how to find the best notes to play when you create a guitar solo. How to get the most emotion in your playing, and how to sound original.

Been working with Mark for 2 years now - electric and acoustic; it's time I share just how much learning and fun is going on! Some lessons we pick apart songs to understand how/why they work. Some lessons are thematic - modes, signature changes, turnarounds, etc. Crazy impressive guitar skills, explains theory and conjures up relevant examples, very adaptable, and extremely patient. My friends say it's made a huge difference in my playing!

Just had a great first lesson with Mark. I'm an intermediate guitarist with a few years of experience looking to work on improving my improvisation. Right away, Mark helped get me started in the right direction and gave me some valuable tips that I'd never considered, which are already helping how I think about my playing.

Looking forward to continuing lessons.

Since our first lesson I've been progressing nonstop. He's a great teacher for both learning songs and exploring the nuts and bolts of music.

Adam does a great job of adjusting to the student's level of experience. I'm a beginner with some minimal uke experience, and he adjusted the pace of the lesson accordingly. I especially like his emphasis on contemporary music; he seems to have fun with music which, as someone who endured years of strict classical piano training as a kid, I find very refreshing.

I liked how Mr. Geiswite taught me a technique on something was really struggling to get through. He not only taught me the scale, but what a tonic was and helped me identify the tonics in the scale.

My instructor taught me technique and helped me understand the importance of this instead of going right into songs like most of my last music teachers.

As a recent graduate from Berklee College of Music, I am well versed in many styles and can cater to many fields of musical study. My principle instrument is guitar and I have been playing for over 10 years. Between my college education and private lessons from my younger years, I am able to balance building skills and having fun learning the instrument. I believe the most important part of learning an instrument is the desire to practice. To achieve that I want to give my students lessons that they find fun and engaging while they expand their knowledge and understanding of the instrument. All ages and skill levels are welcome I look forward to helping my students advance their guitar playing in any way they want.
