About John G.

I've been teaching privately and lecturing in the Chicago area since 1998. I offer an exceptionally deep repertoire knowledge to target the student's interests, strengths, and areas of growth. Along with my sense of which books and repertoire to assign at a given stage of your musical journey, I offer a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of humor (riddles are a specialty).

My teaching philosophy is based on personalized but traditional methods -- No gimmicks! The best part of teaching is the cameraderie with the people who come to me for help achieving their artistic goals. I'm inspired by the delight and pride my students experience as they progress -- regardless of the age or level.

You'll enjoy learning on a vintage baby grand piano in a classic bungalow. I'm conveniently located in the near west suburbs with ample free parking, close to I-290 and I-55. 5-10 minute walk from bus lines, 1 mile walk from BNSF Metra.
