Mark, a retired educator, has taught guitar and performance skills to Mid-Ohio alley students for the past 18 years. His program, “high Schools That Rock” models the Blues in the Schools programs. Mark brings a dozen guitars to your classrooms and within 30 minutes, students are playing and singing songs using simple two and three chord patterns. Rock, folk and blues genre’s lend themselves to “open tuning” and all students can participate. Mark, having been a classroom teacher and school administrator, connects easily with students. Students become active performers through the use of a guitar “slide” and the provided guitars. This program actively engages students, having them sing and play a guitar. Grades: K-6.
