Marc earned a Bachelors degree in Arranging from Berklee College of Music, and a Masters in Jazz Studies from Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts. Amidst his education, he’s had the privilege to study scoring with renowned industry writer Bob Freeman and legendary composer and trumpeter, Herb Pomeroy. As professor of jazz studies at Rutgers Mason Gross he specializes in teaching composition and arranging based on “the Hidden Score,” with a dedicated blog by that title.

Marc’s latest projects include large ensemble arrangements for pianist Orrin Evans, ensemble and piano charts for pianist Michel Camilo, some of which featured at the 25th Anniversary Heineken Jazz Festival, custom scores for Conrad Herwig including his 2016 release, “Reflections” on the Criss Cross label, arrangements for the Moscow Jazz Orchestra and WDR Big Band, and work for HBO’s production of “Sesame Street”. He is also currently working on a commission by Salsa legend Eddie Palmieri to score many of his original compositions for full orchestra.
