Mark Deffenbaugh is an awesome instructor! I have been taking lessons from him for four months now and he is turning me into one great pianist. He teaches theory, techniques and posture. I am really blessed and fortunate to be a student of Deffenbaugh House of Music! Antonio R. on June 28, 2015
I have been taking piano lessons from Mark for the last 6 months and it has been a fantastic experience! He is very friendly and patient and he absolutely knows what he is doing. He has a love and passion for music which he will share with you as you grow as a musician. He is very flexible and accommodating when it comes to scheduling or rescheduling your lessons. I would highly recommend Mark Deffenbaugh for any music lessons you need. Amy H. on April 13, 2015
I interviewed pretty much every music teacher in Alexandria before deciding to go with Mark. There are two types of music teachers I've found - amateur musicians who play guitar in their own band and think they can teach any musical instrument, and professional music teachers who don't have a lot of musical authority. Mark is a musical authority - a professional musician, with solid credentials, and he's an excellent teacher. I really feel like I'm training from a master and not just from an old-fashioned teacher who's stepping me through an instruction routine. He's been able to bring me up to speed on piano very quickly with no pressure. He explains musical techniques and concepts so that they're clearly understood and easy to learn.

Each student is an individual. I start with where they are and work from there.
I graduated from Berkelee College of Music with a Performance Degree. I studied Jazz improvisation with Vibraphonist Gary Burton.
