From 1996 to 1999, Marc Studied Bell Canto Opera singing with Canadian Rock Legend - Brian Volmer of Helix When asked about the technique Marc explains "Brian has incredible pipes and he has taught a lot of vocalists throughout Canada- the proper techniques required to confidently hit the notes."
Marc studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) in Toronto Ontario, Canada. He weekly commuted to Kitchener to see Brian Volmer to hone his craft.
"I was blown away by Volmer's vocal power. I had to learn to sing all over again because I was completely singing in my throat which catches up to you after years of singing in smokey bars. "

"I learned a lot from Ray and the band. They were nice enough to let me tag along for the tour." "Ray Lyell truely is one of Canada's most elusive superstars. People really should pick up his CD's. I like to call him Canada's answer to the US's John Melencamp.- but this may upset Ray so maybe I should recant!"
