In our first meeting, (which by the way is free), we will decide what your immediate concerns and goals are and come up with an achievable game plan that suits your daily routine. Inspiration and motivation comes from success, and vice versa. You will develop a deeper sense of discipline and use it for your own self improvement.
With my degrees in music and education to back you up, you can be confident that the technical information you will receive is tried and true. With 30 years of experience to go with that, I'll show you what works, and what doesn't work ... for you.
Should you need to cancel a lesson, I don't require any compensation. Just give me a call and we can reschedule, no trouble!

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.
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.
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!
