Listen to what other students say
"Marc, this course and your effective teaching is changing my life. Though I earned a Master of Music (back in 1977), there is much I have forgotten because I didn't pursue music as a career, but just dabbled in choral arranging. The course has immensely increased my harmonic vocabulary and opened windows to much more interesting and beautiful combinations. Thank you, thank you, thank you." - Dean H.
"I just wanted to say thank you for your outstanding online teaching... I have spent a lot of money for online music courses over the last 3 years but none of them can compare to the quality of your teaching. I am also a student with the Berklee College of Music and enrolled into their online songwriting degree program. My instrument is guitar but I am learning piano. You have brought so much clarity to my studies at Berklee and have made complicated topics easier for me to understand. You are brilliant yet humble. You have a gifted way a making complexed topics make sense... Please keep it coming!!!" - Neil L.
"I often wondered how much I had missed by not studying music in college by taking self-study online classes later in life. But honestly I feel this format that combines Musescore's playback, with the ability to see instructor's face and explanation in his real-time explanations, ability to pause and rewind, take notes, and rewatch- all makes up for the missed in-person instruction. That's not to mention the stellar no-arbitrariness approach to music theory, like why no parallel fifths etc. Finally, after poring through music theory books and taking online music theory courses, I finally understand the whys. Marc, you hit the nail with this course" - Aileen W.
"For the last couple of weeks your voice has been the first thing I’d hear every morning over breakfast :). I’d just like to say that the course was very insightful, inspiring and a lot of fun. I appreciated seeing the theory in action using practical examples of pieces we all know and love. Your teaching style is great, like an old reliable friend full of wisdom... I look forward to future courses from you." - Tim S.
"Marc, you are hands down the best music theory instructor I've every come across - you have a gift at making all these concepts clear and relatable. I can only imagine how much work putting together and supporting these courses is, but all I can tell you is: a) it's appreciated, and b) I would sign up for other new offerings" - Frank P.
"Digging into the Harmony course sequentially, and I am crazy about it (where have you been all my life?)" - Brian R.
"Wow! What a wonderful course! ... thank you so much, Marc, for your teaching skill, enthusiam for passing on your knowledge of the subjest, organisation of the content into manageable chunks, and giving me a solid foundation for my future musical jouneys. I feel very excited about all that I've learned and I'm keen to start using it in my listening to, playing, and composing music." - Ann W.
"My horizons keep expanding thanks to the lessons. Jazz charts no longer terrify me. :-) The lessons also validate what my own ear is telling me... My appreciation of classical music has sharpened. And it's all getting me through these difficult months of the virus. So thanks a million, Marc!" - Josephine E.
"The content is amazingly well explained that even a blind individual would understand! Grin. Not easy to do, so, congratulations for that, you’re a very talented musician and pedagogue." - Rui V. (a blind musician)
"YAY; Ivy League Professorial Perfection. What an enjoyment and relief. I've digested enough manuals for several lifetimes... What great stuff, Marc. I feel like Alice in Wonderland." - Ken M.
