My name is John Koozin. I was raised in a musical household in Houston, Texas. I have been playing and performing music since I was six years old. I went to an Arts high school and now study Jazz Performance at The New School's College for Performing Arts. I perform frequently in NYC and compose and teach as well. I have taught at summer music camps, at The New York Jazz Academy, and to kids and adults. I would love to be a part of this online community! Thanks for your time.

Amazing teacher! John helped me with beginner guitar and advanced bass lessons. Prices are super reasonable and John is an extremely flexible teacher.
