Piano Player and composer

 I have more than fifteen years' worth of music teaching experience and I am a member of the Music Teachers National Association, the Illinois State Teachers Association and the North Shore Music Teachers' Association. I work with all ages, most of my students these days are children from kindergarten into high school and adults.

Observing one of my piano students

My student learn their instrument as well as "real" music skills (note reading, theory) and we have a lot of fun making music together. Get in touch with me to talk about music lessons for your child!

I also run Mr Mark's Music Together, which offers family music classes for families with young children. They're a lot of fun and very potent experiences for young children with developing brains.

Check these informative articles about music and child development for more good reasons to bring music into your child's life. (Of course, the main reason is that it's fun!)Me on the drums at a gig.Leading a rock band retreat
