Cole Marshall

My name is Cole Marshall and I have been a musician since 2012. I currently play about 14 instruments, and am in the process of learning more. I received my degree in songwriting at Minnesota State University- Mankato, and have been a composer/songwriter/producer since 2014. At Opus Music Academy, I teach guitar, bass guitar, drums, ukulele, and trumpet.

Outside of music, I am an author, video game enthusiast, and “professional” card game player. My dream is to run a music studio out of my house and produce records all day and to also be a successful published author. I strive to stay busy all the time because there should never be a dull moment in life.

Regarding music genres, I am well versed in teaching jazz, rock, country, pop for guitar, bass, drums, and ukulele. For trumpet I thrive with pop, classical, and jazz styles.

Teaching Philosophy

No one is too young or too old to learn something new, and the best way to learn about who you are is by trying new things.
