Mark Sclafani

Guitar Instructor

Moriah Cruz

Ukulele and Vocal Instructor

Mark Sclafani, from Brooklyn, NY, has been an avid guitarist for most of his life. Starting to play the guitar with classmates in the late 1950's at different high school dances, parties, and clubs, he took after his instructor, Sid Margolis, and learned proper guitar skill and orchestral styles Margolis used at NBC. After touring with rock group "Soul Survivors", Sclafani moved his guitar skill to the tri- state area and studied with the great Billy Bauer, jazz guitarist. He hopes to impart the long lasting love of the instrument that Bauer gave him. He now serves as lead guitarist of "Riddle", a jazz group diverse in music from the 1920's to the 1950's. Sclafani resides with his wife, Tina Sclafani, in Edenton, NC. He prefers playing swing jazz.
