Marc began picking out tunes at age 4, as he sat next to his father (who played by ear) on the piano bench in their Philadelphia home. At age nine he was taking lessons, and by the end of high school decided to make music his career. Marc entered Temple University's College of Music as a Piano/Voice Major. After graduation, Marc began playing keyboards and piano in restaurants and for private parties, developing a unique pianistic style which incorporated his years of classical training. His well-trained ear has enabled him to commit thousands of songs to memory.
