Marcus is a very skilled and very knowledgeable horn player and teacher. He is very friendly and easy to talk to. It is difficult to find a teacher that can articulate and describe how to play the horn as clearly and precisely as he does. you’re in good hands with Marcus!

Marcus’s musical intuition is amazing. He was able to articulate some of my troubles playing and provide me with new tools to work on them. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who wants to improve any aspect of their playing. Bonus: he’s super nice and eases any nervousness you might having playing in front of people.

Marcus is an excellent colleague and horn player. He is well versed in the orchestral repertoire and is always aiming to further his own abilities at the horn. His own personal strive for performance improvement is contagious and motivates those he works with.
