At the age of 12 Marcin began learning guitar by himself. Beginning the educational process through tabs and other internet resources available to him. While in college Marcin began studying classical guitar, composition, theory and history and in 2012 received a Masters from Hunter college in performance and composition. It is in college that he progressed the most technically. As a guitarist he is versatile as he feels comfortable reading music, playing jazz standards, funk, blues, rock, and improvising freely
During his first few years in college he began playing and trying other instruments such as piano, bass guitar, bongos, and to this day, continually learns and studies diverse instruments
As a composer, he has composed music for Trios, Quartets, Quintets, Sextets, Orchestras of various instrument permutations, Choirs, and also a short opera.
Marcin has been teaching since 2010 and greatly enjoys seeing students grow and improve. He breaks down all his concepts in great detail, making them easy to digest and comprehend.

I have always wanted to play the guitar but felt too intimidated. A friend told me about TakeLessons and I chose Marcin because he seemed to have a lot of different experiences with music.
Marcin was extremely professional and nice and made me feel at ease. He made it easy to ask questions and explained things really well for me. I took five lessons with him (I've been traveling and haven't been back yet) and was able to play a few songs. What I really like was Marcin's enthusiasm, which, for me, is really encouraging. He was interested in my goals and kept them in mind with each lessons. I could tell that he was preparing each lesson just for me and based on my progress and I felt that I could be honest with what I was doing. Totally recommend Marcin for lesson!
Marchin has prepared a lot to satisfy my goal and he teaches me how to practice independently in the future. So, I can keep improving my guitar skills myself without the lesson.
More over, his lesson is pretty casual and funny. I feel comfortable with it.
All in all. For me, as a starter. He's a good guitar teacher.
