Playing by Ear
Pretty much everyone can play by ear. So I help you to explore your talent, reach your musical goals and to create and perform music as a real and beautiful part of your life. Making music should not be a boring job. Rather, it should be something you can't wait to do. A way to get in touch with the rest of the universe. You will also learn to read and write, but it won't get in the way of your music.

I have completed my bachelor's of music at Wayne State University with emphasis on theory, analytic technique, orchestration, arranging and composition.
Hello, My name is John.
I can benefit you as a student with my experience and great attitude. My general teaching philosophy is to get the students to set goals for themselves and together, work towards those goals. I emphasize the importance of music theory, technique and aural skills. If you would like to know more about my personal experience, keep reading my biography below!
I have a Music degree from Wayne State University, with a concentration in jazz studies, where I focused on performance and writing; including composition, arranging and orchestration. I have several years experience in performance, studio work and teaching. I participate in the American Guild of Music, and Studio Recitals. I have been teaching guitar and bass since 2002.
I am currently a staff ...
Theory is used in all lessons, but I do specialize in concentrated classes applying the concept of music theory. This is to either boost the complexion of your original material, or to better understand genres of existing music. All Genres are covered, Classical, Jazz and Mainstream. As you learn I show you fast and easy to understand methods to apply these concepts into your guitar playing.
I teach all styles of guitar, as I have been in many different types of music situations: Soloist (Classical) Ensemble (Classical and Jazz) Lead and Rhythm (Various Rock and Roll bands) Songwriting and Recording. I am a people person that learned the guitar from many different sources. Most of my learning came from watching others and communicating with others. I like to learn about the people I am teaching so that I can better understand their needs as a musician. My education came as a practical necessity in order to get better as a teacher and performer, as well as make a living doing it. But, by no means do I preach the need to be "educated" but only to be a working, practical musician. I will surely go over the need to read music once the need becomes evident, enlighten ...
With over several decades of theory knowledge from early beginners to junior college level, I start at any level and move from the known to the unknown. I make sure that the basics are covered before moving on to greater challenges.
I have worked for over 30 years as a professional
accompanist and musician in the greater metropolitan Detroit area. I have earned several degrees,
which include a Bachelor of Music Performance in Organ and a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and
Music both from Wayne State University. My studies included wonderful instructors. I have studied
extensively with Albert Fillmore for ten years, Mischa Kottler for four years and Robert Conway for
five years. The last two instructors were from Wayne State and also played with the Detroit Symphony
Orchestra. I have studied organ with Ray Ferguson who played with DSO as well and I have studied
voice with Marjorie Gordon, coloratura soprano.
With over 30 years of experience as professional musician, I am confident that I possess ...
I have been teaching music theory for four years now. The goal of this subject is to provide the base of music so that students can apply it to various instruments. Every form of music begins with theory. I want to ensure that students understand the concept of theory in its entirety.
For 3 years, excellence has been the core value in my teaching. I give the courage and confidence to all my students that they can conquer and accomplish their goals in music if they remain focused, determined, and eager to learn. All of my music lessons are done in a fun, engaging environment that is very different from sitting in a classroom listening to lectures for hours on end. I make the student feel as if they are already in the drivers seat as the musician they desire to be. With my dynamic music training, students will walk away knowing that they are ready musicians, preparing to wow the crowd with excellence. Why would you want to go elsewhere when you have the best musical success system right in front of you?
