    About MeContact Me
    Looking for a guitar instructor? I'm Marcel and I can help you become the musician you want to be. I teach many styles from Rock and Roll to Jazz, and have the ability to work with any level of student, from one just starting on their first instrument to the advanced player wishing to bring their skills to a new level. My goal as an instructor is to teach and help other musicians advance their skills and become better musicians, and to share the love and and enjoyment of music with the next generation.
    Let me help you reach your goals and discover potential as a musician.
    My Teaching Background
    I've been teaching for over 20 years and have the expertise to help musicians of all ages and levels of experience. I have done studio work for artists recording their CD's. I was also involved with the acting company "The Calvary Players" and enjoyed lending my musical talents to many of their productions. In the 90's I performed with the group "Higher Ground". I have performed at the Capitol Theater, the Washington Center, the historic 7th ave Theater as well as Evergreen State College and others. In 2009 I accepted an invitation to play at The Symphony of Praise. This was an all day Christian worship concert in Harmony, North Carolina, whose coliseum seats 12,000.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    Learning guitar can be fun and enjoyable. I believe it should be a pleasure to learn. I am patient, while still motivating you to reach your goals and potential. I will teach you in an easy, understandable way. I will teach you to understand music as well as play. I'm often amazed at how many musicians don't understand the basics like chord structure and simple scales. I believe that these fundamentals are essential to becoming a good musician.
    Music is a language. The better we understand the language (music), the better we can express ourselves in that language.
    Let me help you become the musician you want to be.
