John was an excellent teacher. Right from the beginning he was prompt, accommodating, and professional. The lesson was great. His easy going, friendly manner makes you very comfortable. John was very knowledgable and talented.
I had a few questions that couldn't be answered in the lesson. John went the extra step over and above to have researched those questions and got in touch AFTER the lesson to answer them and provide additional videos to check out. Great experience!

John is one of the most gifted musicians I know. His ability to see music as an extension of his soul sets him apart from the herd. John helped with my breathing so I can last longer. I would recommend anyone to meet with john and take a lesson on anything musical. Love this guy!!!

John is extremely versatile and talented, and his love for music is so obvious and inspiring. I went to him with what I thought was a solid foundation of knowledge but he brought so many new ideas to the table that I started thinking of music in a whole new-and positive- way. He is very personable and easy to work with, and he treats you with respect and focused attention to detail. Definitely try working with him, you won't regret it!
