I have adopted the philosopher Bennett Reimer’s beliefs. He believed in music for music sake. In other words: Music was an art-form to be admired and not always performance based. Reimer believed in music literacy and wanted every child to understand and know how to read basic music notation. Music is also an interpersonal and multicultural art-form designed to excite and engage all cultures. If you can link any and all subjects to music, you will be able to grasp more students. Knowing how sound waves are made and the history of the piano, is just as important as knowing and demonstrating singing or playing instruments. My own philosophy on performance is, “Not only is it necessary, it is a necessity.”

John truly went above and beyond to help me prepare for my auditions. He is the reason I have been offered so many roles. John is the Swiss army knife of instructors. He is an all-in-one coach with a fully decked out studio that I was also able to take advantage of. Every standing ovation I have received is thanks to mister John Jannis. If you're not using John for whatever musical needs you have, you're making a foolish mistake.
