With my broad performance and compositional background in folk, classical, jazz, rock, bluegrass, soul, blues, and musical theater, I offer students a wide musical perspective and tailor lessons to match student interests. I work with students on music of their choosing to improve technique and develop an understanding of music theory, improvisation, and composition.

For classical guitar students who would like to pursue the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) graded exams, Mark offers coaching in preparation for all aspects of the practical exams.

Mark was very patient yet informative. He pointed out areas to improve upon and complemented me where I had been working hard. I was comfortable with his online lesson because he looked me straight in the eyes as though we were face to face. I know he will teach me how to play my mandolin; so looking forward to the next lesson!
Kristen
Mark has been a great teacher for this adult beginner! I take lessons in clawhammer banjo and ukulele with him, and his easy-going nature and skill in identifying ways to improve make it a joyful experience! Highly recommend.

Mr. Sylvester is one of the greatest. He is not just an amazing guitarist, but he is also very kind. He treats people with so much respect. He speaks to me and my mom so nicely. He is very patient. He has a deep knowledge of music and knows how to get the most out of even the least talented people (like me!). He doesn't ever get mad if you make a mistake or forget to bring your music notes. We were so lucky to find Mr. Sylvester.

I TEACH all of my students - beginning beginners through advanced - that what seems complicated is nothing more than a bunch of simple things put together. The next step in your learning guitar is simple. We just need to identify it and learn it. No matter what skills you already have - or if you are just getting started - we can identify what you already know and build on top of it. If you have holes in your skillset (everybody does!), we can identify them and fill them in.

DID YOU KNOW that a lot of fingerstyle guitar moves and improvisation are EASIER than some types of strumming? Beginning and intermediate guitar players learn a lot of "campfire" techniques - how to strum a certain way, how to form certain chords. And this is really good. But there is a whole bunch of other techniques few players know that are just as simple. Just as easy. And when you learn them you will stand out as the accomplished guitar player you can be.

THE RESULT is that you will learn a ...

Spook has been a wonderful guitar teacher, always offering great insight and helping me understand new concepts with my guitar. He is very accommodating to my interests and will structure my lesson around what I am trying to learn. I have seen clear improvements over a short period of time while working with him and suggest him to anyone regardless of level!

Spook is a knowledgeable, patient, perceptive, fun, and inventive teacher. He teaches music, guitar performance, and songwriting in small, digestible steps so you can really get your head (and fingers) around it. But, more important than all of this, he is an advocate and a friend.

Esther is amazing! My daughter enjoys her piano lessons.
Jacey
Mrs. Esther is a really kind, patient, and honest piano teacher. She helped me work through my mistakes and told me what I needed to work on in order to improve. Her way of teaching is effective and it helped me gain more knowledge about piano and the techniques of being a good pianist. She is very caring and understands when I'm in a difficult situation and she always encourages me to keep going. I enjoyed all the experiences I had with Mrs. Esther and the unique personality she had. For the past 9 years, I have learned a lot about music and the hard work that goes into playing the piano. I will never regret having Mrs. Esther as my piano teacher and the adventures I had.
Lawrence
Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

I tailor my guitar lessons to each of my students so that they can improve their skills in areas that interest them the most whether that be acoustic, electric, blues, classical, jazz, or country. This teaching approach, combined with my extensive and diverse guitar style background fosters the most efficient path of growth for my students. Furthermore, I can offer to teach students how to both sing and play guitar as I studied both guitar and voice for over 7 years.

My qualifications:
I've studied the guitar for seven years focusing on sight reading, playing by ear, understanding chord structures, and music theory. I've played in a rock band in college, I played guitar in Kenyon's Jazz Strings ensemble, I've also performed in bars in Paris. Additionally, I'm always ready to learn new styles or help my students learn songs that they're interested to play.

"Just had lesson number two with Lars. I've never played any instrument before and am having a great time. Lars is patient and encouraging when teaching. I'm having a blast and hope he finds as much enjoyment teaching as I do learning. Growing up in the 60's doesn't allow me much time to become proficient. There just aren't that many years left in me. I won't be playing any Freebird riffs anytime soon, but I'm pretty confident as I learn more with Lars I'll be able to play a few ditties around the fire pit.
