Do you find yourself practicing but never getting any better? Do you spend countless hours playing, but you never really see any progress? Sometimes you feel like there will be a breakthrough, but then it slips away. You can’t understand what you are doing wrong. Frustration leads you back to YouTube, get more books, or read articles hoping that you can finally get your playing to where you want it to be. It can get infuriating.


  • Improve your current skills
  • Strum a few chords with friends
  • Learn how to write a song
  • Sit in on a jam session
  • Play a guitar solo

I will devise a personalized guitar lesson plan to help you get the fastest results possible. Most guitar instructors won’t or don’t know how to create such a plan. You will get a direct and fast path to becoming the player you want to be.

Learning to play guitar should be fun, whether you are just starting out or stuck in a rut with your current skill level.


“I tried for years to learn guitar on my own (books, you-tube videos, on-line tablature, etc.), and was never happy with the results. Mark focuses on breaking down complex concepts to basic steps, and this really produces results.”
David G. – Engineer/Father (Student Since 2017)

You don’t need “Natural Talent”

Having “Natural Talent” is a myth. Don’t be fearful that you don’t have “it”. Don’t let that falsehood keep you from starting to play or advancing your playing to a higher skill level. Talent isn’t something you are born with. Talent is grown and cultivated in regular people. With the proper strategy, training, coaching, and dedication from you, you can play guitar the way you always dreamed of. I will be with you every step of the way to help overcome any obstacle that may arise.

Get a highly trained teacher

As a member of the “Elite guitar Teachers Inner Circle” (an international professional organization of guitar teachers), I have learned proven methodology for producing successful students. I have access to hundreds of other guitar teachers in that community to constantly revaluate the best and most effective learning techniques. Most guitar teachers have no idea how to teach. I have had specific training on how to be an effective guitar teacher, and I am the only trained teacher in the New Haven CT. area.
