Mark has been a fantastic teacher, mentor and friend over the many years I have known him.

As a teacher he constructs logical, focused lessons that improve the areas you want to master. Whether it's learning the basics or introducing challenging concepts, he always keeps the lessons personable and engaging.

He is also constantly working to improve his lessons and methods on each area of the drum kit and it's incredibly refreshing to have a teacher that is passionate about current trends and the future of the instrument.

As a mentor he has been an influential and knowledgeable role model, always helping me to make decisions.

Furthermore, I have recently had the opportunity to work professionally with Mark and that has also been a brilliant journey. His passion and dilligence for the work he does has been inspiring.
