I grew up as a rock guitarist. I was all about shredding. My idols included Eddie Van Halen, Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, Greg Howe, and many more. These guys are still my idols. I was all about technique and playing fast, but found out my playing was lacking in other areas. I started to get passionate about blues, which led to jazz, and even R&B. I went to Berklee College of Music where I studied jazz with some icons including George Garzone, Hal Crook, and Mick Goodrick. But I was still playing in pop bands, Rock bands, playing jazz gigs, I literally did anything that came my way. After graduating I found my self on a nation rock tour going all over the country. When I got back I was still playing jazz gigs around Boston and playing for sessions. All the techniques I use to help me with my playing are what I strive for when I teach students.

Marc was one of the best teachers I've ever had! I was really looking for someone who could to teach me how to play my favorite songs, so Marc taught me techniques and gave me practice methods that really improved my ability to play and learn new stuff!
