After years of and being influenced and working with platinum record winner songwriters and grammy winners producers of the midwest he’s added the folk flair to his stylings. His lyrics always provide a provocative and honest point of view about the reality we live in. His music is simple, minimalist, something that will hit you in the most intimate way.
Marco has given me lessons for over 2 years. He has great energy and is methodical in his approach to teaching guitar. He keeps it fun and encourages me to practice but doesn’t make me feel too guilty when I don’t. He is always on time and makes sure to make up any missed lessons. We have progressed through many genres and it has given me an appreciation for many different groups. He is so talented and he jams out at our lessons. He played at my son’s grad party and was fantastic!
