Lesson Details

Bass Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
"Mark is a fantastic instructor, he is super patient and understanding with my complete lack of knowledge about anything guitar related. Would recommend Mark to anybody starting out, or anybody experienced. He has a wealth of knowledge about music, music history and guitars. He keeps the lessons interesting and fun, while also challenging."

"Mark is an amazing guitar teacher! He is really patient when it comes to teaching me but he is also an amazing guitarist and is always teaching me new stuff. I would definitely recommend him as a teacher. As a beginner, I was slightly hesitant to take up the guitar but I'm really glad I found him as a teacher because I see how much I'm improving each week - only because of his guidance and expertise!"

Mark is an American composer, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and music producer.

"I started teaching private music lessons my senior year of high school, in 2006. Since then I've taught over 50 different students of all ages from 3 years old to 61 years old. While still living in Ohio, I was the one and only official guitar teacher for Guitar Center Youngstown through the duration of 2008-2009. In late 2009, after moving to Los Angeles, I continued to teach privately all around the city. I currently live in West Hollywood with my wife and dog. I plan to continue teaching private students for the rest of my life."
