About the Actor
Musician, Educator and Author Mark John Sternal began teaching his trademark method to private guitar students in 1991. He was only 17, with one year left of High School before he would attend Richard Daley College in Chicago. By 1994 Mark relocated to Florida, and with him came the manuscript of his first book. The piece was titled Total Scales Techniques and Applications, which Mark sold to his private students. One afternoon a student's friend came into the music store where Mark was teaching. He explained that he had seen the manuscript and wanted to purchase one for himself. This transaction sparked the idea to put the manuscript up for sale online. The manuscript sold so well that Mark was able to quit his 'other job' as a student loan consultant, and pursue music full time. By 2002, fueled by user feedback and testimonials, Mark's growing number of music instruction titles awarded him national recognition. In 2004 his proven methods became available to the retail music industry. For most of 2006 through 2008, MJS held the #1 best selling music instruction slot at some of the largest music and book stores in the United States. In March 2008 MJS Music & Entertainment introduces Mark's GUITAR DVD #1 Beginner Basics & Beyond. October 2008 introduced the BASS GUITAR DVD #1 Beginner Basics & Beyond.
