About Mark D.

I believe in making music fun while students learn. Beginners through professionals who have a genuine enjoyment through playing will create a life-long enrichment, hobby or profession. Strong fundamentals with solo application help the whole student develop. Whether you are looking for basics, school ensemble support, audition preparation or a come-back plan, musical expression and enjoyment are a personal extension. I look forward to helping all my students remove obstacles to their self-expression.

Mark is an incredible instructor for my 10 year old son. He is experienced in working with younger players and my son really enjoys learning from him. We were hesitant to try online lessons, but Mark has this mastered this venue; having instruction in our our home has been super convenient. I highly recommend Mark as an online trumpet tutor.

Mark is an excellent music instructor who works so well with kids. His knowledge, expertise and instruction, not to mention his dry sense of humor, always had us looking forward to the next lesson. He's an awesome instructor, as well as human being and we would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their playing ability.
