About John I.

I've been playing guitar for 17+ years. My favorite styles are rock, blues, pop, folk, and soul. I learned through both private lessons and independent study.

In addition to private lessons, I've learned through various method books and through the insight and direction of more experienced musicians I've played with. I've played with various bands/artists in Central Florida and performed regularly in church ensembles.

Currently, I play guitar at Real Life Christian Church. They're a multi-site church with roughly 4,000 weekly attendees and campuses in Clermont, Orlando, and Kissimmee.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm very laid back, yet detail-oriented.

I prefer to tailor lessons to each student's needs and interests, though I'm also comfortable teaching from established method books.

My philosophy is that playing guitar (and playing music) should be fun. As such, I try communicating fundamentals and important concepts using riffs, progressions, and songs that students know and enjoy.

In short: I love playing guitar and hope my students will too!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Large, open living room with guitar amps, music stand, sound system, and seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I'm comfortable teaching classic rock, rock, pop, blues, folk, and country.

Wonderful Teacher

So far, we have been very pleased with John! He is flexible when needed for vacation times. He is very patient and encouraging with my son. I am happy!

I don't have a bad thing to say. John works at my pace if I get something quick we move on if it takes a little bit we slow down. He has answers to all of my questions and we learn songs I know and love. All around a great instuctor! Highly recomended!
