Mark Mazzatenta is among the cherished few musicians to excel in both the jazz and classical worlds as performer and composer. He earned his M.M. at Florida State University in 1987 and began teaching at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where he directed the guitar program and taught Jazz Appreciation. Mr. Mazzatenta’s concerts feature contemporary and original music – everything from solo classical guitar pieces to improvisatory electric guitar synthesizer. He also performs in a duo with twin brother Michael on piano/harpsichord/keys. Mark’s favorite musicians include John Williams, the Assad Duo, Pat Metheny, Allan Holdsworth, and Paul Winter. Mark has played in workshops with Teri Lyne Carrington, Fred Wesley, Byron Stripling, and Robin Eubanks, played with Mike Stern and performed concerts as a guest musician with Chris and Dan Brubeck. You can read his article “Expanding Your Horizons with Horizontal Scales” in the Winter/Spring 2001 issue of Soundboard magazine. As a 2010 recipient of the Central Piedmont Regional Artists Hub Program grant, Mr. Mazzatenta is recording his 3rd CD with his band Mazzjazz.
