Meet Our Instructors Meet Our Instructors
I’m Mark Wilson… instructor, author, recording artist and performer. I’ve taught music for over 25 years. During this period, I designed an efficient, productive and affordable lesson system that accelerates the progress of all students. I developed the 5 Star Method for guitar, bass, Chapman Stick, vocals, ukulele and percussion. The 5 Star Music Method was designed with ease-of-use in mind — ideal for instructing all levels of students, from beginners to advanced. The 5 Star Music Method consists of 12 books and play-along CDs.
As a recording artist, I have released two independently distributed commercial CDs (available in the 5 Star Music Store). A third CD is on the way.
The 5 Star School for Music offers a wide variety of popular opportunities for students of all ages and levels. These range from private music instruction to group music workshops, even recording in our studio, plus live performances. Whatever your goal, skill level and dream, it’s all here for you.
In my opinion, one-on-one instruction has become a lost art form. Let our teachers share the gift of music with you and show you how rewarding and relaxing the experience of playing music can be. The key to success is opportunity and motivation. Our program offers both.
