I teach students not only how to advance with their instruments but how to become musicians and help them to understand how music can play a vital role in their growth and development in other areas as well.
My teaching style is more modern in a sense that I try to relate everyday things students go through, to music in a way that is fun and active for the students but stimulating as well. My students often leave their lessons in a more positive and upbeat mood then when they first entered.
Ive been teaching at the Sheerwood Community center here in Fairfax for about a year and a half now and my students love the atmosphere.

Well, for some silly reason this SURVEY won’t let me give him 5 STARS so let me write out he has earned a 5 STARS rating from us! We appreciate how he takes his time and makes the lessons fun and interesting and yet, still teaches and thoroughly explains what to do. Thank you Mark for making piano come ALIVE again in my home— especially since BEFORE they met you, both of my sons wanted to quit!! Mark is AWESOME 😊
I like his easy going manner, and obvious interest and joy of music. I like that when something puzzles me, he comes up for a way to explain it, sometimes even before I ask. I like the way he is constantly challenging me, although sometimes I don't have time to work through a challenge to my satisfaction before the next one comes.
Very professional and a exceptional musician.
Get a feel for there playing level and work step by step to help them improve and understand all they can accomplish.
I am fininishing my teaching degree with a concentration in music education at George Mason University. I have currently been teaching all string instruments including the double bass and piano professionally for about a year and a half now.

The type of students I have been workering with vary in age. The youngest was four and the oldest is 70 +. Music has no age, no gender, and no limitations. I accept and encourage people of all ages to try giving music a chance, it just might change your life!
