Dr. Mark Anderman is the Music Theory Coordinator for SRJC, and currently serves as Chair of the Music Department. Mark's approach to theory and musicianship includes a strong emphasis on rhythmic pedagogy and a holistic view of analysis that embraces all musical styles. He studied music theory and composition with Richard Festinger, Henry Onderdonk, and Martin Herman; orchestration with Donald Para and John Wallace; and jazz arranging with John Prince. As a composer/arranger, Mark's works have been widely performed, including several by the SRJC and Sonoma State University Jazz Ensembles.

Mark is an accomplished multi-style guitarist. His mentors include jazz virtuoso (and Joe Pass protege) Frank Potenza, Martin Austin of the iconic prog rock group Ixt Adux, and Chord Chemistry guru Ted Greene. Mark's extensive performing career in and around Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area includes jazz, classical chamber music, gospel, rock, and musical theater. Mark has been a featured performer/clinician at the Redwood Empire Jazz Festival, and his international work includes the album Double Vision recorded in Singapore with Bruce MacLeod.

Mark has also ventured into radio broadcasting: he was a featured guest on Melbourne, Australia's J-Files as an expert on the music of Frank Zappa, and has been an occasional co-host of KRCB's Jazz Connections with Dr. Larry Slater ('The Jazz MD').

In addition, Mark has published two books of guitar pedagogy, including Commercial Guitar and Bass which served as the official text for the Commercial Guitar program at Cypress College. His doctoral dissertation was an in-depth study of Musicianship instruction in California Community Colleges.
