Ian Marshall is the instrumental music teacher here at DaVinci Academy, this being his first year teaching anywhere.

Mr. Marshall started his career when he started playing in junior high he looked at it as a safe haven and thought that if he became a teacher he could show others that safe haven and help those who need it the same way as music helped him. He was born and raised here in Ogden Utah. Falling in love with music was easy for him just as it is with everyone. Rock music, just in general, he also loves jazz, but he considers the large genre of rock to be his favorite.

His hobbies include playing golf, and music on the drums, guitar, and ukulele he also enjoys video games. When asked about golf he says “I just like the challenge”. His life goals ” My main life goals are to set up a family raise kids and keep teaching”. His dream car is the Porsche 911, as he puts “a beautiful sports car.”

He didn’t play sports in school but marshal says “I didn’t but I wish I did” particularly football as stated previously he currently plays golf. His favorite instrument is the marimba the marimba is “a percussion instrument and is the most beautiful instrument”.

Mr. Marshal has his mind set to teach forever, but if he hadn’t become a teacher he said “I probably would’ve done something with computers.”

Marshal is a great teacher and hopes to teach for a long time and intends to do so.
