What my students say

“Learning singing with Mark was amazing and relaxing. During his lessons I got to know many great tips and tricks that helped to shape my voice. Very professional and he is a real nice guy. Highly recommended!” (Dartsya T.)

“I’m currently taking skype lessons with Mark, and have done so for the past 4 months. I am very pleased with my progress and I intend to stick with Mark as my singing teacher for a long time to come. I highly recommend Mark as a teacher, he is both calm, pleasant and a good teacher.” (Tobias D.)

“I took vocal jazz classes for many years and wanted to do something new to open up my musical and creative horizon. Since Mark was playing in multiple bands all over Europe he is not only able to train pop/rock vocal training but also to give comprehensive insight views of the pop/rock music business. With Mark´s help I was able to experience various ways of singing and using your voice, high quality vocal training and a whole different musical world besides jazz in a very comfortable atmosphere. Mark is not only a professional singer and songwriter with a lot of proven experience but also a very nice and warm hearted person.” (Katharina N.)

“Mark was great. He was knowledgeable, professional, and very patient. I highly recommend his lessons for anyone wanting to improve their singing voice.” (Kurt L.)

“Mark is a very calm and canny teacher. I always enjoy my lessons and I’m satisfied with my improvement. My recommendation for him as a vocal coach!” (Olga M.)
