Very knowledgeable and patient teacher

With help of 12 lessons from Marc, My son scored 98/100 in the California Merit of Certificate theory exam and Scored 5 in AP music theory exam. My friends' son also took lessons from Marc, and he scored 5 in his AP music theory exam too. My son's school does not provide AP music class, so it's such a blessing that we found Marc as my son's teacher. Marc is very patient, respectful, and encouraging with my son. My son loved to take lessons from him and was motivated to learn. I very highly recommend him.

Knowledgeable, effective, patient tutor!

Professor Marc is so knowledgeable, not just in music theory field, but also the education of various aspects of being a musician. He packed lots of knowledge points in his lesson, in a fun and clearly spoken/explained fashion! Professor Marc adjusted his teaching according to the student' individual need and characteristics, very skilled at effective teaching with great encouragement and support, which motivated learning. My child is fairly young - 9 years old, but he was very engaged during the hour-long lesson, he said the lesson was full of "thrill and exuberance", because his teacher can makes music "alive"! Highly recommend Professor Marc!

Very happy with the lesson

I am very happy with the lesson, Marc was a kind and patient tutor and I learned a lot from the lesson. We covered music theory concepts that I didn't know before and he suggested exercises for me to improve.

Knowledgeable Music Theory Tutor

Marc did a great job helping me to understand how to analyze music for my master theory class. I would highly recommend Marc, he is an outstanding tutor! He is very patient and kind, and willing to explain the more difficult problems. Marc also gives out handouts to help learn musical terms.
