“Mark has the quality that all the best teachers have: making a confusing topic accessible and understanding. His depth of musical knowledge allows him to explain it in much simpler terms than any other teacher i have learned from, which means you learn so much more in a shorter space of time. Best of all, what Mark teaches is rooted in physical application, so you come away from every Skype lesson already feeling like a better guitarist than you were an hour earlier.” Richard White, Kent UK
