About Marc

I offer fun and relaxed piano lessons by a professional musician. With me, you can learn to read music, play by ear, improvise, learn chord voicings, understand harmony, and write and play your own songs! I can provide beginning and intermediate piano lessons for all ages.

I have played piano & trumpet on TV shows, written and arranged music for TV and Film, cruise ships, and major production shows. I currently teach and play with many local bands doing corporate parties and weddings. I have a firm grasp on today's current music and recently appeared on the show TMZ playing piano for their New Year's Day special 2013.

I make learning fun and get you playing your favorite songs very quickly. I combine traditional piano methods with learning to play songs that are on the radio today! I can also help you with playing multiple keyboards. Learn to play horns, strings, & synth parts at the same time. A lot of bands want you to be able to do this. I have keyboard charts for hundreds of songs played in clubs & for private parties to help you learn!

I have also been a professional trumpet player for over 20 years. I played lead trumpet for production shows with Holland America, Princess Cruises, and NCL. If you need trumpet lessons to get prepared for your school band, I can help!

I have had a background check done privately & is available upon request if you are considering me for lessons.

Very Patient — We had our first lesson with Marc, and my daughter stayed focused with Marc the entire hour lesson. He was very nurturing and complemented on her abilities. My daughter is very interested in teaching herself from videos, but is wanting to take her music to the next level. Marc is an excellent piano teacher!! ...
