John is really good at laying out the fundamentals, and elaborating enough to where even the newest of beginners will understand. He's not a grouchy instructor, so anything he feels you don't quite pick up on will be practice material. Quiet learning atmosphere which is really important. I'd suggest him to anyone looking to learn piano.
