We really like Marc. He is very talented, and a kind and patient teacher who brings an element of fun to the lesson while still keeping on task. My son (13) related well to him.

Great Teacher!
Very patient with a extensive background in music theory, Broadway, and jazz. Had a lot of fun and learned a lot in just one class. Can't wait for the next!
