"Mark has been teaching my 9 year old Sam to play since summer 2011. He met with myself and Sam to explain how it would work and engaged Sam right from the word 'go'. Sam is making great progress and more importantly for me, he loves playing and looks forward to his lessons every week. Thanks Mark for bringing music into our home!"
"Mark is an inspirational music teacher. I asked him to come and teach my daughter at a time when she was struggling to maintain interest with her school lessons. His enthusiastic approach completely transformed her attitude and she is now progressing happily and rapidly. Mark's lessons are all encompassing, he does not just teach the instrument he also encourages a good approach to music generally. He is also very flexible, he has previously turned a guitar lesson into a practice session for a clarinet concert piece, accompanying on the piano whilst giving advice on the upcoming performance!"
"Mark is a dedicated and inspiring teacher. He has a great approach and has made learning the piano a real pleasure for my son. He enjoys practicing and looks forward to his lessons."
Mark has been brilliant teaching my daughter for a little over 2 years. He worked with us to understand what was important to us (in our case fun and some grades). He then worked with my daughter to develop her skills and she is now at grade 3. She really loves the fact that he is enthusiastic and motivational and he really tailors the programme to her needs. I would recommend him totally.
I have always seen piano lessons as a 'chore' which had to be done in order to improve. I think now this was simply down to the way I was taught. I look forward to our piano lessons every week and I have learnt more about music in our short lessons over the past few months than I have learnt in a lifetime. If they could have you as a teacher I am sure everyone would be playing a musical instrument!
