Johan here and I love music! Nice to meet you fellow music lover.

I have been involved in music since I was just a child. It started with learning piano, then guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, djembe and so many more.

I’ve continued to learn and perfect my craft by being apart of different types of bands from small to large with varying genres of music. I also formalized my music education with a bachelor of Art in Music. Did I mention I’m also quite a harmonizer? Sign up today and maybe I’ll throw in some tips with your instrument lesson.

Johan is great with kids! My son is a very active child, and he was able to make the lesson fun and engaging. More than that, I enjoyed seeing Johan be creative, listen to the child, and make music fun, more than being it a lesson (per say). I highly recommend Johan!

Johan is talented, passionate, and an all around positive force that everyone needs in an instructor. He can help you discover what it is you really want to get out of piano/music, and then guide you to where you want to go.

I'm so grateful for Johan and all that I have learned & continue to learn from him. He is an amazing musician, teacher and friend. I especially appreciate his sincere heart and desire to help people. He is such an encouraging teacher and has a unique ability to see the hidden potential in others.

Johan is a multi-talented musician. He understands music in a unique way and has an ability to communicate that to others that are not naturally gifted in understanding musical concepts. He is very laid back and easy to get along with and has a vibe that makes you feel like you've known each other since childhood. He can also teach at all skill levels from a beginner that doesn't even have rhythm to pro level musicians that tour frequently. He also works really well with teaching kids. When he's working with children, I can see his passion and excitement go to greater heights. It's pretty cool to see it. Give Johan a try. I think there is a 92% chance that you'll learn to play music and make a new friend that you look forward to hanging out with.

Johan is a extremely talented and artistic musician that I have gotten to know.
He is not only very good at improving your skills but, also able to teach you fundamental understanding of how to play music and enjoy it as well. He taught me with piano cords and it wasn't hard as I thought would be .

What an amazing teacher, encourager, and confidence builder while learning Johan is!!!
He taught me to play guitar over two years ago. We started from the very basics with weekly homework assignments, jam sessions, and had periodic follow-up sessions to make sure we were working towards my desires goals. Since then I’ve played in front of small and large groups. Two plus years later I have the confidence to play and improvise during different jam sessions.
