I teach both baroque and modern technique on a tracker action instrument, which is then applicable to modern instruments. My teaching style is rooted in developing a technique that is centered, focused, and free. Beginning organ students should have reached an intermediate level of piano performance and be tall enough to sit comfortably on a lowered organ bench with feet touching the pedals without flexing.

Private lessons are given at my church in Worcester or online through the TakeLessons platform. I also teach in-home piano lessons. My students have g

I have been taking organ lessons with Mark Mummert since May, 2020. He is an excellent teacher. I am an accompanist at a small church. I started as a pianist but there is a greater need in our community for organists. Mark has been so valuable in improving my organ playing. He has emphasized organ fundamentals as well as technique. I am impressed as to how much we have accomplished with virtual lessons.
Jo Anna Savage
It is obvious that Mark M. is a well seasoned teacher who doesn't waste time so that a great deal of material can be explained and demonstrated. I am happy to have found someone who can guide me for many years and understands the demands on a church organist.

Lily enjoys her lessons and I can already see an improvement in both skill and confidence after only 3 lessons. Thank you!

About Simona

I was born and raised in Italy. When I moved to the States in 2005, I barely spoke English. That's why I decided to start teaching Italian. I know how difficult it is to go to a foreign country and not be able to buy something as simple as bread. I will send you links, we will read together,

Simona is my 3rd Italian teacher and for various reasons. Simona is great! I love that she is having me use Italian in such a practical manner. "Not just memorize". I am still a beginner and am taking 2 lessons per week for 30minutes and I think that works well.
Robert (Bob) B.
After 11 lessons with Simona, I can say that I feel very lucky to have her as my Italian language teacher. Simona is very patient, always encouraging and complimentary. This is what keeps me going and feeling like I'm making progress. I'm a bit older, and don't have the memory muscle of a young person, but Simona patiently finds ways to help me grasp each lesson. I highly recommend Simona to anyone who appreciates a skilled and patient instructor.

Very enjoyable!! I am excited.

"There aren’t enough good words to say about acting coach, Dennis Johnson, of Rollicking Productions. Personally, I have had the pleasure of working with Dennis for 5 years and his commitment, knowledge and ability to guide his students to top performance levels in the acting world is unbelievable. With Dennis’ help I was able to win for the State of NH two years in a row for the nationwide Poetry Out Loud competition, land several lead roles in community theater, gain my own teaching experience in his acting workshops, etc., but more importantly I gained a whole new level of confidence that I didn’t have before. Working with Dennis was one of the best decisions I've made and the skills that I learned from him still compliment everything I do today."
