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!May 5, 2014
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!!!Mar 27, 2013Verified
