I enjoyed teaching Gerard for about 3 years.

“I have had the great good fortune of finding a great guitar teacher. I have never played any instrument in my entire life, but at 58 decided, after thinking about it for quite a while, that I wanted to learn how to play the electric guitar. For the first month I had tried to learn how to play from a book. That didn’t work out very well. I found Mark’s post on Craig’s List and after our initial email exchange, I decided that he was the type of teacher I wanted to provide me with my musical training. I have not been disappointed. Mark is a wonderful teacher.

As talented as he is as a musician, you’d think that he would have an enormous ego. He doesn’t. He is genuinely committed to conveying his love of music to his students. He is patient, thorough, and adapts his instructional techniques to the student, changing his teaching rhythm to suit the student’s progress. For me he is laying a firm foundation in musical knowledge and technique that I believe will allow me to go as far as I can possibly go musically. Most importantly, he is helping me gain a well-founded confidence that I can actually learn to create beautiful music. Thank you, Mark!”
