« Without Marco's incredible passion and knowledge for teaching music, I would never have learned how to play the bass guitar and find a real love for music. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone interested in music. He is immensely talented in many genres of music and different instruments. Very friendly and caring person. Cannot say enough good about him. »

Learning the language of music opens up a whole new world that most people only wonder about. With my degrees in music and education to back you up, you can be on your way to great new experiences.

Methodology

My approach is to first develop an individual plan to give you immediate musical growth and satisfaction in the activities you are currently involved. You tell me where you want to go, I will show you how to get there. Together we will form exercises and learning strategies to fit your learning style. What you will get is useful technical knowledge but also develop your own philosophies that put life long meaning into your musical lifework.

Background

I perform, compose and arrange music for small groups and full orchestra. I have also conducted and concert bands, orchestras and directed many small groups. My true love, however, is jazz and improv. I have degrees in music and teaching but what I've learned in the real world is also invaluable. You don't need to be a music genius to sound great.

Without Marco's incredible passion and knowledge for teaching music, I would never have learned how to play the bass guitar and find a real love for music. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone interested in music. He is immensely talented in many genres of music and different instruments. Very friendly and caring person. Cannot say enough good about him.

Crystal

I highly recommend Marco for your music instruction needs. He is not only a wealth of knowledge and experience, he is also a warm and endearing individual from whom you will look forward to learning.

Jessica

I had the privilege of working with Marco for four years, and in that time, he was a wonderful instructor. Not only is he incredibly talented at piano, theory, arranging, and performing; he is also one of the most patient, nurturing and caring instructors I have ever worked with. He is great at getting you to self start, and is very encouraging toward all new ideas. He lets you work toward your interests and helps you toward your goal in an easy going manner. I will never forget my time working with him, and the sense of confidence he instilled in me as a musician. Thanks Marco!
