Annual Flatpick Workshop at Wintergrass – 2023

Over the past 40+ years of performing and recording, I’ve helped literally thousands of students learn to play their favorite music. I teach guitar, mandolin, fiddle, ukulele and bass in styles from Bluegrass to jazz. I can accommodate most styles and techniques and write all the important class content which includes; play along mp3s and PDF’s of whatever song we’re into at the moment.

Thanks for considering studying with me. I’d love to fit you in somewhere. Right now, my schedule is full as “Lessons with Marcel” keeps me plenty busy with internet students. I do keep roughly 50% of my roster for in-person lessons, so openings will be coming up. When an opening does come up, I contact the next student on my list and see if they are still interested and available. When the potential wait time for a regular spot could be 3 to 6 months, I totally understand if you reach out elsewhere for instruction.  Sometimes we just want to get after it!  Contact me though, if you’d like to get on my wait list or were interested in a “one-off” lesson.

In the Let’s Get Started questionnaire, under comments, please elaborate on your music background (if any) the more detail the better. I accept cash, PayPal, Venmo, checks and cash.  Also what day and time you’d prefer, and I will try to accommodate.

Of all the places in the world to teach… I do!  Since 2009 I’ve been Zooming and Skyping one-on-one lessons all over the planet – from Texas to Alberta, California to Nottingham.  I teach private and group lessons at Olympic College in Poulsbo, and private instruction at my Home Studio  – also in Poulsbo. My “Raise the Bar” classes are currently on-hold.

Over the years I’ve made it a point to archive my most popular lessons and shortcuts, which we hope to make available here in video form.
