I'm your "real" teacher : Marc-Andre Seguin, Canadian thirty-something Jazzer, teacher and composer at times. I graduated twice with music degrees from renowned music schools (classical and Jazz) and have nearly 15 years of music teaching experience (including the last 5 years on Skype, through this website).

Most of all, I'm dedicated to the music, to this website and I have a passion for teaching and explaining stuff to others. This is probably why this website is one of the most genuine and honest you'll find on the internet.

If you ever have a question, comment (or if you simply want to say "Hi"), please drop me a line! I truly exist "for real" and it's always a pleasure to hear from you. Seriously.
