Every student is different. I've found that students have vastly different, ages, tastes, goals, and want to learn for different reasons. They also learn and develop in different ways and at different paces. That said, I use the first lesson to determine goals and a ...

Bass lesson With Al

Had a really nice first lesson with Al. He is a good guy and a we had fun jamming out on a couple jazz standards and talking about scales. He has good knowledge of the instrument and i was happy to see that he played a 6string like myself. I enjoyed the lesson.

About John

Hello,

Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me.

Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me, but it will last your entire lifetime. I hope that all of your life you will have a rewarding relationship to music and the spirit of great sounds!

It has been my pleasure to teach privately, as well as in the classroom for ...

Love my lessons

John is an amazing teacher all around. Very professional and good at getting me to understand things which may be a bit confusing. I am currently reading and playing between four books and I never thought it would be possible especially just after taking lessons for a year. Sometimes I feel a bit frustraited when I am not able to play certain pieces or when I dont understand a concept but John is great at breaking everything down and making it easier. I am now realizing how my piano skills can be utilizied in my other music projects. When I attend my lessons I am reminded why I love having them so much. With him as my instructor I can see my skills improving and I know I will only get better. I recommend piano lessons to everyone and if you are looking to have a great teacher John is your go to person !

Ukulele

Felt like an afterthought...

I could tell John was very into music, but not a strong ukulele instructor. He might be a wonderful guitar teacher or for other instruments, judging from the other reviews. My experience was that he did not send the lesson plans in a timely fashion, and was not fully present while we were in our lesson. Often he would spend time "trying to figure it out" on the uke rather than be teaching me something. He insisted on playing elaborate harmonies, while I strummed basic ones and would get lost in playing rather than paying attention to how well or not well I was playing. It felt more like an opportunity to jam out rather than teach at times. When a lesson is 30 minutes long structure is very helpful. I also felt like he had no idea what he had already taught me week after week, so a lot of lessons were repeated. To be completely honest, I started to feel like I would rather be somewhere else than learning an instrument, which is sad b/c I am very excited about learning. Again from the reviews he sounds like an incredible guitar teacher, so I would say that it's possible he was not as interested in uke teaching, but may be an amazing teacher for other instruments.
