Mark Sepic (Banjo, Guitar, Hand Drums, Percussion, Ukulele, Theory)

Mark Sepic has been teaching and performing in the GTA since 1980. A devout guitarist and composer, he is a noted accompanist and collaborator in settings ranging from modern dance and theatre to numerous pop and jazz recordings and broadcasts. His ensembles appear regularly on nightclub and festival stages, and have been featured in thirteen consecutive Toronto Jazz Festivals as well as abroad to Germany, Cuba and Singapore. As an arts educator, Mark has distilled his rich and diverse experience into an integrated arts program which has introduced thousands of Ontario students and teachers to the irresistible joys of music.
A passionate environmentalist, Mark's "Junkestra" program, a hands-on wonderland of recycling, integrates sports, music, and art, celebrating the musical potential of everyday things. In schools, galleries and festivals throughout Ontario Mark has helped Canadians recycle over 250,000 items; giving tin cans, toilet paper rolls and plastic jars a musical afterlife as drums, kazoos and maracas. Larger items – pots, pans, plumbing and yes, even the kitchen sink, become sound sculptures, 11 of which dot the Ontario landscape, from Toronto and Hamilton to Barry's Bay and Moose Factory.
Mark’s newest creation, a hockey stick xylophone, has been featured on CBC Radio's DNTO, as “Canada’s Green Slap Shot to Save the World”.
Guitar Guru or Mad Scientist – you decide. Either way, Mark guarantees to get the most out of all willing and able students.
