Mark Dvorak continues to be an integral member of the faculty at Chicago's remarkable Old Town School of Folk Music. When he's not on the road, you can find him there teaching, jamming with students and passers by, or just hanging out and soaking in the vibe.
He began teaching as an avocation, but his interest in working with students deepened and evolved into a way of life and a livelihood of "helping people teach themselves."
Since 1986, thousands of music students have passed through his classes. He has helped many a beginner get through their first chords and strums, and has hosted a catalogue of master classes and workshops on a range of subjects from old time banjo picking to the legacy of the great Lead Belly, to just about every other topic related to the study of the American folk song.
