Mars Licciardi is a musician and teacher from the greater Chicago area. Since the age of 16, he’s toured regionally and performed at every major music venue through Chicago and the Midwest. He specializes in Rock, Blues, Country, and RnB, but his vast knowledge of current music trends has resulted in an ever-expanding repertoire.

Mars has taught over 60,000 lessons to aspiring and experienced players of all ages, some of who have studied with Mars for over a decade. His work ethic, vibrant energy, and ability to provide full lesson customization are his trademarks. Having grown up playing music and recording with 2 multi-platinum producers, Mars constantly seeks ways to give back to the musical community, and to young players in particular. In partnership with Consolidated Music of Barrington, he created the most successful Independent Rock School in the Chicago area, Rockstar 101.

Mars’ dedication to his students has resulted in success stories ranging from students studying at Berkley School of Music to students becoming runner-ups on American Idol.
