Music in the Haskins' household was as much a second language as English or Spanish is to another. Mark Haskins’ late father was a violinist and his sister a music teacher. So there was always a tune coming from some part of the house. Mark's room though, was flooded with the likes of Miles Davis and Wes Montgomery. Imagine a seven-year- old, tackling the likes of “Footprints” and “Born to Be Blue”, on the piano. Mark did just that, as his lessons started at an early age, only moving onto the drums a decade later. Five years later, he switched to the guitar. Many thought he'd jump right into music after high school, but he went to University and graduated with a master’s degree focused on electronic engineering and computer science. Soon after that was obtained, he switched gears and went on to further his music studies, (jazz) at the Trinity College of Music in London
