Marlon is an incredibly qualified, knowledgable, and kind teacher. As an incredible performer who has studied with the likes of Stanley Clarke, he understands extremely complex concepts, and can explain them as well as the simple concepts - which he also understands. He focuses on his students so completely and always wants the best for them. He encourages us to find our own unique musical voice as he has done.
