Teaching since:
January 2015

I am a graduate of the Cal Poly Pomona music department looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with people who want to express themselves with music!

I use the John Thompson Piano book series to build understanding of written music, theory, and artistic expression. In addition to teaching classical techniques, I help guide my students on the path to writing their own music!

During my time in university I played piano with the Kellogg Soul Ensemble and the Jazz Combo. I also sang extensively with the university concert choir.

I currently play gigs with a jazz trio and a funk-rock band. I also play keyboard on recordings for local pop and hip-hop artists, and assist with arrangements and choir direction.

Awesome! John is an expert at the piano and an expert at breaking down instructions on how to easily learn to play the piano. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to develop their piano skills!

Being an aspiring musician looking to find ways to progress his craft, I knew I needed professional help. John was recommended by a mutual friend and delivered on his promise of giving me the musical knowledge I needed in my work. John's work ethic and patience when it came to breaking down musical structures and theory was appreciated. He was timely, accommodating, and motivating too. I learned a lot from him as a teacher. Highly recommended.

John was patient and knew how to get an older student such as myself past the piano roadblocks. He is dedicated and a skilled teacher.
