About Marc

I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I've been playing guitar since the age of 6, and have recently graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Composition. While studying there, I worked as an English Tutor for foreign students. Outside of school, I worked as a performing musician, and taught music to young children.

When working with students, I am honest and encouraging, providing guidance and support as well as all the necessary information relevant to their needs. Feedback is essential in order to grow, and that is my ultimate goal for the lesson. My strengths are in Music Composition/Theory as well as in languages (English, Portuguese, and Spanish).
