I feel very lucky to have Marcus as a violin teacher! He is a great violinist and has a very thorough way of teaching. He's also a really cool person. I look forward to my lessons and can't wait to see how I progress on violin in the future!

Marcus has incredible technique and wants to be sure Kenzie learns everything right from day 1. We are very pleased.
