Introduction: My approach to teaching piano, drums, and voice is simple! Show students how to play/sing songs they already love, regardless of genre, and provide them with the necessary tools for teaching themselves new songs. Building a musical foundation on this premise allows for students to maintain their interest in music, while simultaneously becoming more proficient, making learning music enjoyable and worthwhile without losing steam. My individualized lessons ensure that students learn how to sight read and play by ear regardless of age or skill level. Whether the desire is to play for fun or to become a professional musician, my approach delivers an effective way to learn music and keep it fun while doing so.

Marcus is by far one of the best teachers I’ve had. He’s relatable, insightful, and always finds ways to push me to be a better musician. I’ve progressed much faster in the few months that I’ve been playing the piano than going other routes of learning. Would highly recommend for people of all ages who are eager to get started/advancing their skills.

Details: 26 - 44 years old • Yes, the student can read music • 0 - 2 yrs of formal training • Pop • Yes, the student has a keyboard • 60 minutes • At the pro’s location

FAQs

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I studied film composition and was a drum principal at Berklee College of Music. I play piano, organ, drums, and also sing. I have a diversity of experience in music, doing everything from teaching to music production to being a sound engineer for major artists.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Look for someone who’s passionate about music, relatable, and most importantly culturally relevant. I can’t tell you how many parents say to me they don’t play piano anymore, because they were forced to learn music that wasn’t relevant or already apart of the their world. My students are excited to learn and practice, because we’re learning and playing music they’re interested in and that makes all the difference!
