    What an incredible journey it has been studying guitar with Mark for the past 11 months. At 50 yrs old I picked up a guitar for the first time and went to visit Mark. Less than a year later I can read music and play Bach on Classical guitar as well as Hendrix and Zeppelin on my Strat and Les Paul. He is incredibly patient, knowledgeable and a very cool guy. He can get you strumming, picking and soloing in a very short time frame as long as you pay attention and practice, which with him is a joy. A great experience and I am certain there is no better or more knowledgeable guitar teacher in Los Angeles!

    I found Mark because I wanted to learn to play heavy metal, but as soon as he sits down and starts fingerpicking, you realize the depth of this teacher's skills. Mark knows more about guitar than anyone I have ever met. He can play every style of guitar you can imagine... and play it extremely well. His teaching style is relaxed and you do not feel pressured as though someone is looking over your shoulder making sure you do everything right. He seems to introduce a new technique at exactly the right time and everything starts to click. I can't recommend Mark highly enough. You rock!!!

    Been studying with Mark for a while now and have been more than pleased with my progress. Mark is outstanding as an instructor, and as a musician. If you are looking to begin guitar studies, or if you are looking to take your skills to the next level, Mark can get you there. I look forward to each week - you will not be disappointed with Mark as your instructor.

    Mark is incredibly talented and has been a wonderfully inspiring guitar teacher for my son, who started from scratch. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

    Mark's an awesome teacher - fun to work with, infinitely patient with beginner students, remarkably skilled in both electric and acoustic guitar. Really conveys his passion with the instrument and his love of the art -- if you're looking to get motivated, start here!

    I've only worked with Mark for a few weeks but, in short, he's awesome! He's a patient teacher who miraculously knows how to make me understand certain aspects of guitar just when I think I'm struggling most. He's also very encouraging and accommodating with lesson times. And his price is so beyond comparison!

    Mark is an excellent teacher. He's very patient with me. He's also very good with his craft. I only wish I can be a better student.

    Working with mark is a great oppertunity for beginners intermediates and experts alike. His knowledge of jazz, flamenco and classical guitar can influence metal and traditional rock performers. Being a indie folk musician i learned chord structure and different scales that helped my intermediate skills.
