I found Mark on YouTube and decided to give the Free First Skype Lesson a go. Mark's advice and constructive suggestions nourished my playing and has inspired me to continue playing and writing music. So much more to explore with this dude!

Just had my first lesson with Mark, in the space of an hour he picked up exactly what I needed and gave me the best lesson I have ever had. I definitely will have more.

Looking to try something new and enjoyable? Need a bit of one-on-one guidance from a reliable professional? Sometimes all it takes to really understand the material is a considerate instructor who knows how to teach at your pace. Having worked with students throughout Christchurch NZ since 1996, I bring a depth of professional experience and knowledge to those who are eager to expand their minds, talents, and skills. I offer quality, personalized service at affordable prices. Contact me to see how I can be of service to you.



Most students already have learned from a variety of sources before they even come to me. Usually there's just one or two simple 'tweaks' I can figure out in just a few minutes, that can have  the most impact on your guitar playing. Sometimes this advice is so profound, it's all you'll need to get you on your way. But for that to happen, I'll need to see you play (scary I know) Take advantage of the vast professional experience I bring. Get in touch today to find out more and to reserve your lesson. I can't wait to meet you!

Sound like a professional

I know how difficult it can be to figure out what's missing in your playing. Is it tone? Is it lead? Is it your thinking process?

I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities.
