NYC Session Guitarist & Musical Director for YouTube/Google

Hello,

I'm Mark Sidney Johnson. I have spent the last 12 years working as a studio and live guitarist in NYC, playing and recording for major label artists. I was the lead guitarist in YouTube act, CDZA which had 33 million views and 350K subscribers, and starred in the "Journey of The Guitar Solo" video which has 1.5 million views. With CDZA I performed at the inaugural YouTube Music Awards in 2013 with T pain, and shared the bill with Arcade Fire, Eminem, Avicii, M.I.A and Lady Gaga.

I am also the Musical Director for Google and YouTube live events, which take place all around the world. For this I compose, arrange and perform with ensembles of all genres and sizes. Venues have included Madison Square Garden, The London ExCel and Marina Bay Sands (Singapore). These events have included performances by Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson, Katy Perry, Snoop Dogg, Macklemore, Rita Ora & James Corden to name a few.

I also worked as a consulting arranger on the 2016 Oscars for Dave Grohl's performance of 'Blackbird'.

As an educator I teach students of all ages and levels of ability, and can focus on any desired genre or style. I can also tutor in Music Theory, Composition and Arranging, and can help students prepare for any of the ABRSM, GCSE, A Level (or similar) syllabi.
