Mark G.

Las Vegas, NV

About Mark

I am a full-time working drummer currently residing in Las Vegas. In addition to guiding up and coming drummers with their musical careers, I am working on music & soundtracks for film and television projects with platinum-selling recording artist Mark Slaughter. My drumming can be heard on Mark Slaughter'™s first-ever solo track, "Never Givin™ Up" Release March 18, 2014 on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play.

In April of last year I was inducted (for the 2nd time!) into the Las Vegas Rock Hall of Fame for my collaboration with "Ripside." I performed at the induction concert with fellow inductees
Xcursion (Mark Slaughter, guitar/vocals; Kelly Garni, bass guitar). A picture of this performance is included in my "photos & video" section.

Background:
I started playing snare drum at age 8. Two years later I got my first drum set and began studying with jazz great, Irv Kluger. I haven't looked back since. I started playing music in the Wm E. Ferron Elementary School band. In my junior year in high school I co-founded Dream - my first œpro gig. After high school, I joined the progressive-rock band "Ripside" and my journey into all things music began.

Mark rocks!

Mark’s incredible skill as a drummer is only matched by his abilities as a teacher. In just a short time with Mark’s instruction, I have made vast improvements in my drumming. At my first lesson with Mark, he determined my skill level and what I sought to achieve with my lessons. Almost immediately, the fundamentals Mark showed me were translating into my drumming with my band. Mark has opened doors in my playing that I didn’t know existed. Mark is incredibly patient and really cares about ensuring I receive significant benefit from my lessons. Mark really goes out of his way to make sure I fully grasp everything he shows me. I would highly recommend Mark for anyone who wants to learn from a true master at his craft and from a teacher who takes pride in his students and his teaching. Thank you Mark!!

Mark Review

I have had many different types of music teachers through out my life and Mark is by far the best. He is very serious about helping his students do what they want to do. I had specific goals I wanted to accomplish. Mark took my goals seriously and did what he could to help me understand the techniques to be a good drummer. He broke things down in to little steps that helped me to practice on my own and figure specific drum patterns out, He gave me the tools to improve myself as a musician, Mark did not have to but he chose to put a lot of his own time in to teaching me what I wanted to learn He obviously cares about his students and takes them seriously. I highly recommend him to any future students

Bruce S.

Boulder City, NV

About Bruce

I received my degree from the University of Utah in instrumental music education. Along with specialized training in band and orchestra instruments, I also offer lessons in guitar, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica in playing and performance. When a student has a song they want to learn, I focus lessons around the requested song. I also have an extensive library of songs that I utilize. My music methodology is built around a song book that also has a CD attached. This has proven to be a lot of fun for all my students. It makes practice time more fun as they "play along" with the CD.

*** Lesso
n Details ***
With folk instruments I start by teaching the student basic chords and basic chord sequences.
In the beginning I stress the proper hand position and I spend some time perfecting the best finger position. This eliminates a lot of problems that will come up later. For the first songs I teach them songs that use those same chords and chord sequences. Soon after that I teach them how to read music. This is vital to being able to play lead on any folk instrument. As the student progresses he or she is exposed to many different styles of music I also will teach several different picking and strumming patterns. .The student is also taught about more advanced chord progressions and music theory that can be used in any situation.

For brass instruments I teach techniques in developing breath control and embouchure development. Attention to these details will eliminate problems that could come up in the future. The student will learn how to read music from the start. As the student develops these basic techniques I begin working on tone development and breath support. As the student progresses he or she will be exposed to many different musical styles.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room: Instruments, bookshelves, open space, additional seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can rent a guitar/banjo.
I can provide an amplifier.
I can provide PA and analog recording equipment.

*** Specialties ***

My 11 year-old daughter has been taking lessons for about one year. She enjoys her lessons and always looks forward to the next one.

Bruce is a skilled musician who's not only encouraging of her development, but also very patient and indulgent with her whimsical personality. Bruce's wife, Diane, always has a treat (many homemade) available after each lesson.

I highly recommend his services.

Sharon T.

Las Vegas, NV

In Recording Studios Singing Live and studio is totally different , I strongly recommend voice coaching during and preparation of recording a song .
The Vocal line is invariably the focal point of a song , so it has to be good and because natural human voice is the sound which we are most familiar, any flaws in vocal recording are immediately evident. I WORK on Perfecting your vocal pitch and delivery. I also have a recording device that I can record your voice before getting into the real studio. It's always good for you to hear what you sound like, get accustomed to your voice on cd, and we both listen for what works and what needed to be changed and improved.

Sharon was absolutely fabulous and got my son prepared and confident for his auditions!! She was always on time, easy to reach and sincerely took a personal interest in preparing him to be successful in his immediate goals but also has given him the tools to continue to practice on his own and hone his skills. I would absolutely recommend her and she more than exceeded our expectations!!

About Andrew

Andrew is a multi-instrumentalist (with focus on electric, acoustic, and nylon-string guitars, mandolin, banjo, and ukulele) from Pennsylvania that settled in Las Vegas with his wife in late 2013. After completing a music degree in Los Angeles in 2008, he spent one year in L.A., composing music for The Weather Channel (Atlanta Office), and backing a singer-songwriter that performed at local events and regularly on a few local TV and radio shows. In the summer of 2009 he and a few friends began working as orchestra and top-40 band musicians for a well-known cruise line. One contract grew int
o ten, eventually spanning five years, three cruise lines, and 70 countries, while playing different shows every night, from instrumentalists and singers to jugglers and comedians. Currently, Andrew is involved in a few diverse projects and shows in the Las Vegas area. He plays in a Motown and R&B-themed show every Tuesday and Friday at the South Point and Treasure Island resorts. He is also in an original band consisting of two members of Cirque du Soleil's "Zarkana" and one member of "Mystere." Since forming in September 2014 and playing various clubs in the area, the band was asked to perform with "Blues Traveler" on April 30th, 2015, and is booked to open their show at the Las Vegas Brooklyn Bowl in October 2015, with plans to be marketing a debut album by the time the performance takes place. Andrew also owns a music arranging company, and during 2015 notable clients include members of The Celine Dion Band and locally-famed singer Phil Flowers. He also performs in the band at a local non-denominational Christian church every Sunday. Recently, he has begun the filing process to start a non-profit organization to provide music lesson opportunities to children in the area from low-income families, especially if their school has eliminated a music program. The organization will eventually have a centralized location, be open seven days a week, and will be paying music teachers the full wage scale as outlined by the Las Vegas Musicians Union, in order to re-create some portion of the many work opportunities paying a musicians union wage-scale that have been lost in Las Vegas over the past decade. This will also allow musicians union members who teach at the non-profit school, to use their compensation to contribute to their own health care eligibility requirements, and pensions. During the lessons, Andrew uses the same software as his professionally arranged sheet music, to keep a journal for each student as they learn, and the journal is regularly emailed to the student as a PDF file. He also includes video examples on the take lessons website for every instrument that he advertises teaching, for the benefit of perspective students.
