amazing teacher who knows how to play almost every single instrument, including trumpet, trombone, violin, french horn, guitar, bass, sax,drums, marimba, and piano, to name a few. just a amazing teacher.(not to mention he writes music for us!)
Nice person; can't teach music beyond learning how to play. Doesn't teach how to tongue and articulate properly. We sounded okay some of the time. He can play a bunch of instruments and is good at teaching 4th grade band. He is a much better marimba teacher and the marimba class always sounds good.
If you are on task and if you pay attention, then Mark will be very nice to you. I enjoyed his class, but it did not offer any opportunities for more advanced musicians and therefore was way too easy. Also strings were playing with us which was weird and I think that Salmon Bay NEEDS an orchestra.
He definitely has some problems and is a very interesting teacher
to me, he was very ncie. but he can be very mean. but i learned alot from him espically the marimbas
Mark is a waycool music teacher and i had fun playing the marimbas too!
