PATIENT, brilliant, creative and excellent music teacher with a sense of humour. He taught myself and about 5 other friends/young people that I know and he really helps bring the best out of his students. Teaches a wide age-range. He really helped me improve my technique. Fascinating to hear about his composing experiences as well. Absolutely 5*. Such a good find.

Mark possesses that rare combination not only of being entirely on top of his subject but of also of being able to communicate clearly and to inspire pupils at all levels.
