I'm Mark,

I've been teaching piano on YouTube for over 6 years and have accumulated around 100.000 subscribers.

I mainly teach specific songs on youtube, but I love the idea of being able to provide actual courses on Udemy. Udemy provides me with the opportunity to put together multiple lessons in a single course, which is amazing!

If you want to get an idea of my youtube content, check out the PGN Piano channel!
