Making  Melodies

Mark’s Piano Studio is located in my home in Chicago, Illinois near Lake Michigan, on Sheridan Road. I greatly enjoy teaching adults. I am happy to teach you to read sheet music, play and identify chords, play great classical, folk or rock music.

Enjoy a few performances by past students below!  (and one of me playing Bach)

Trevor plays Malaguena!

Sade plays The Rainbow!

Margaret plays Distant Bells!


“Mark has been my piano teacher for 6 years. I have had other fine teachers of music

in my lifetime, but Mark is exceptional.

First, Mark is a gifted musician (just listen to his CD’s and you can verify this yourself). Secondly, Mark’s knowledge of music never ceases to amaze me - all genres too! Thirdly, Mark is a very patient teacher who is not afraid of taking on even the most difficult students. That would be me. I had not gone near a piano for 48 years when Mark agreed to take me on as a student - old habits and all!

Mark was my first piano teacher to teach and encourage me to learn music theory–something I had not been exposed to in my childhood years of studying piano. If not for Mark, I would not be able to play at the level I am

currently playing.

Mark is also a gentleman and a genuinely good human being. Words cannot do justice

to Mark’s character and temperament. If you are someone who is determined to study music, you would be most fortunate to have Mark as your muse.”
