About Mark

In the nineties, I was a high school English teacher specializing in grammar and writing, and for the past sixteen years I have been a community college Music teacher specializing in piano, music theory, and composition. I earned a teaching credential (English & Music) from CSU Northridge and master's degrees in both Philosophy and Music. I am a member of the Music Teachers Association of California, and regularly participate in Certificate of Merit. I am a professional pianist who plays classical & pop/jazz equally well, and a composer/arranger who composes in many different genres.

I am an excellent teacher, as I completely understand the learning process: motivation, breaking down an idea into steps, focus, synthesis, building on previous knowledge.

I can show you your path to success in a realistic yet fun way, so please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Composition (Music)

I have an M.M. in Music Composition from CSU Long Beach, studying there from Dr. Martin Herman and Dr. Bruce Davis. I have composed several compositions and arrangements for voice or choir and piano. My greatest work is an opera for eleven solo singers, choir and orchestra. This has been performed five times professionally.

Ear Training

I have a M.M. in Music Composition from CSU Long Beach. All M.M. graduates must have expertise in ear training, especially in the field of music composition, and especially someone--like-myself--who has perfect pitch. I have also worked at Cypress College for the past 15 years, and have tutored music students in music theory, sight singing, and ear training.

Piano

I majored in piano performance at CSU Northridge, studying for four years under concert pianist Francoise Regnat. I earned a teaching credential in Music from CSU Northridge and a M.M. in music from CSU Long Beach. I have worked full time as a professional piano accompanist for over twenty years, the last sixteen at Cypress College. I am also a member of the Music Teachers Association of California, and have prepared students for Merit Certificate.

Great Teacher

Mark was detailed, patient, and excellent with my 2 children. You can tell he is a true teacher and put his heart and soul into his teaching. He's so knowledgeable and helpful. I wish I found him sooner! I have to say of all the piano teachers that my kids have had with, Mark is the best.
