My name is Mark and I have 26 years of teaching and performing experience having graduated from Cambridge with a Music Degree in 1991 and Birmingham with a Post Graduate Teaching degree in 1992. I am a trained tenor and a classical guitarist but also play, perform and teach acoustic, rock, electric guitar, voice, musical theatre, opera, keyboard, piano, ukulele and music theory.
I established Mark’s Music Services in 2018 and have now expanded that business to become LMMEAL (Live Music, Music Education and Adult Learning) following a recent spell away from Derbyshire. During this time, I spent six months working with adults to improve their literacy and numeracy and have added this experience and skill set to my teaching portfolio.
For teaching - "Enjoy Learning and Learn by Enjoying".
