Hi, I’m Mark. I’m a guitar and ukulele teacher with more than 20 years experience. I began learning to play the electric guitar when I was 15 and have never looked back. I have also spent many years teaching other instruments such as bass guitar, banjo, drums and basic piano keyboard skills.
I am an experienced music teacher (20 years+). I have studied in both Ireland and the UK with some of the worlds top recording and performing musicians and EDucators.
"I want to be a better guitar player but all I'm learning is endless scales and exercises. What's the point? I want to learn how to use them!"
"I don't understand music theory or all these complicated chord names but I have so many ideas of my own and I just want to create my own music! What do I do?"
"I just want to play the music I enjoy listening to, but I can't work out the guitar parts by ear and I can't play fast enough, yet!"
"I get so fed up with practicing. I keep making mistakes and never seem to improve. Sometimes I feel like giving up completely."
Does any of the above sound familiar?
If your enjoyment and passion for learning the guitar or ukulele is gradually diminishing because
...then you have come to the right place.
Music is primarily a listening experience;
a language that can be decoded by our ears
and through our guitar we can express our
creativity, energy and emotions.
Whether you have a Rock or Metal heart (RockED), or you're a Funky Soul (FunkED), maybe deep down in your DNA you've got Southern 'Country' Roots (TwangED), you could have the emotional intensity required for the Blues (BluesED) or the brain artistry that thrives on improvisation and creativity (JazzED), with some basic ear-training you can start to play in whatever style you want!
Imagine being able to understand your favourite music just by hearing it,
and instantly have the chords, riffs & licks at your fingertips.
