About Mark

In college I was a piano performance major, but switched to elementary education. By the time I was out of college, I felt I would make a better living for my family if I went on to become an accountant. I have spent 30 years in corporate accounting, computer systems including web design and management, and computer systems repair. Through the years I also raised 7 children, for their last 15 years before the youngest reached adulthood I was a single parent. I still worked with them as a coach and in scouting, and continued to carry a small load of piano students.
As I now reach retirement age while still energetically in my 50's, I am looking to finally use that elementary degree to tutor, add more piano and music theory students. I also enjoy teaching people of all ages to use their computer fully. I really enjoy working with teenagers, too. My nature is particularly patient and peaceful.

In-person lessons

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.

Music Theory

Understanding music theory removes much of the mystery of how music is constructed and explains how notes, rhythm, dynamics, etc., work together to communicate an endless variety of ideas and feelings.

Piano

I earned a minor in piano performance and Bachelor of Arts (Elementary Education) from Virginia Intermont College in 1978 and started studying piano at age six. I have taught private piano lessons to students primary age to adult since college, taken accordion lessons, and have accompanied choirs and congregations. I currently enjoy learning a variety of genre's of piano and keyboard music.
