With years of music training and performance experience ranging from sharing the stage with John Mayer and Norah Jones' musicians to studying with Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney's rhythm section, Marc has effectively helped students acquire a strong sense of independent development with skill, patience, and positivity. Marc has also made navigating the fretboard with ease, clarity, and precision while maintaining proper form, technique, and comfortability an approachable feat with his Jazz training from Stanford University as well as with his implementation of the Alexander Technique from the SF American Conservatory Theatre.

· Guitar · In studio Marc has always been well prepared for his lessons and always shows a dedication and respect for me. It is without reservation that I give him my highest recommendation.

· Guitar · In studio Marc plays brilliantly with a gifted sense of advanced reharmonization—you can hear it immediately with his warm, modern sound. His brilliance and maturity are among the many reasons that place him at the caliber of New York City’s professional Jazz musicians.
