Mark taught my daughter piano for over 4 years. Over that time, due to his patiences and Marks easy learning methods, my daughter went from a beginner to paying Beethoven and performing recitals with confidence. Mark has a super personality and makes learning fun while getting the work done. I would highly recommend him to anybody!
