What Students Are Saying The following testimonial (2006) is from Brent Canter who won a full scholarship to study Studio Jazz Guitar Performance under Kenny Burrell at the UCLA jazz program:

"As a student with Mark Fitchett for over seven years I have grown as a musician and enhanced my knowledge of theory and technique in a number of styles. From my early days playing the blues and Green Day to my present jazz studies, Mark has always challenged me and kept me interested as he introduced new ideas into my musical vocabulary. From chicken pickin' to Coltrane substitutions, I have never had a dull lesson which is why I have continued to see Mark every Sunday for as long as I can remember. Mark has helped me foster a work ethic and an open mind which helped me in my school jazz band and in various other performance groups. Even when I began playing with my own group at the various clubs on Sunset Blvd, Mark instructed me in how to best run rehearsals and work in the music business. I would definitely recommend Mark Fitchett to any individual interested in picking up the guitar and learning something new." - Brent Canter
