About this pro

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 and outside of music. 

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 3 years now and my students love the atmosphere.

Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. [email protected]

    Mark is a pleasure to work with, his patience is to be commended. I have observed him with the students, he take his time to make sure they really understand the different notes. My granddaughter and her parents speaks very highly of him. I hope Mark stay around to work with my granddaughter for a long time.

    Mr. Mark is a patient instructor and uses teaching models that are fun and age-appropriate. One of the best parts of the program is regular recitals, which helps students practice towards a specific goal and gives them the experience of performing in front of a crowd.

  • Dana Wedeles

    Mark is a talented musician and teacher with an incredible amount of patience for younger students.

  • Elisabeth Epstein

    Mark really meets students where they are and is both kind and firm. So great how he brings life lessons into the music program, too.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Get a general feel for their playing level and work step by step to help them improve and accomplish their goals we make during the very first lesson. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

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 about 3 years now. I started playing the cello when I was around 8 years of age which started me on my musical voyage and influenced me to learn other instruments. Seeing how they relate not only enhanced my playing and teaching abilities, but allowed me to make key connections to different life experiences that has helped me grow as a person. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

What types of students have you worked with?

The type of students I have been working with vary in age. The youngest has been four and the oldest have been 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!
