Teaching since:

Malcolm is an experienced performer, instructor and songwriter specializing in both classical and electric guitar.

Malcolm began studying guitar at the age of nine, started his first rock band by the age of 10, and has been performing ever since. His studies began at the Perkins Center for the Arts and continued with Leighann Narum through the Mason Gross Extension Division. Malcolm then went on to pursue degrees in both Communications and Classical Guitar Performance at Rutgers University/Mason Gross School of the Arts. He continues to study under the guidance of world-renowned guitarist/composer Jorge Caballero.

In addition to classical training, Malcolm is also a seasoned rock musician. Having the experience of playing in rock bands for over 15 years has provided him with a "College of Rock and Roll Knowledge" type of education. Malcolm is currently the lead singer/guitarist/songwriter of Malcolm and the Haze. He also performs regularly with cover band Einstein Bridge.

Malcolm has taught over 2,000 lessons with School of Rock, In-Home Music Teachers Philadelphia, and recently joined TakeLessons. He takes pride in helping his students achieve the results they desire by using teaching methods that are both fun and effective. Many of his students have started from scratch and achieved a high level of proficiency in months. No matter your experience, Malcolm looks forward to helping you learn and grow as a musician.

Malcolm is an outstanding instructor! I have been playing for some time but never had any formal training. Malcolm's knowledge and teaching methods accelerated my skills and re-energized my playing. I highly recommend Malcolm as a guitar teacher for musicians of any skill level. He is patient but p[assionate!
