Marc Berner

Marc Berner began playing bugle and piccolo in Port Chester, New York in 1964 at the age of 7.  He gravitated to the flute soon after, and taught himself the alto saxophone at 19. 

He later added soprano, tenor and baritone saxophones in addition to alto, bass and contra bass flutes and shakuhachi.

Marc's recording debut was in 1973 with Noel Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul and Mary) on Noel's Something New and Fresh. 

Based in Miami, Florida since 1983, he has worked and recorded in various musical styles. In 2004 he co-produced his first CD, Wind and Strings for Yoga with guitarist/songwriter Jonathan Dichter.

   His most recent CD, Grateful Heartwas released in 2014. A duo with the brilliant Mike Gerber on piano, it features Marc's vocals and a moving tribute he wrote for his late father entitled "My Grateful Heart - Dad's Song".
