Although there are certainly many technical aspects of teaching guitar, it is so important to allow a student's natural creativity to show through as well as to adapt to their learning abilities and the path that they want to take in getting to know the instrument. There are no right or wrong ways to become familiar with playing the guitar, and I have always encouraged students to take the approach of their choice and explore genres and techniques that they are interested in. Passion for guitar playing is something that naturally grows, and I always do everything in my ability to nurture that enthusiasm and guide students along its paths.

Hi! I'm John. Watching someone's passion for playing guitar grow is amazing to watch, and I will do everything I can to guide you on your journey. The beginning stages of learning to play the guitar are perhaps the most exciting. Practice is key, but there are so many ways you can practice, whether learning the chords of songs you like or simply improvising and experimenting.
As a musician as well as a teacher, I've learned that learning the fundamentals of guitar playing is a great way to build a base for future artistic expression and aspiring musicians. Of course, there are many reasons why students want to learn to play the guitar, all of them valid, and whatever your personal aims are in picking up the guitar I will be right there with you the whole time.
John was very accommodating to me and listening to what I was struggling with. he always works at your own pace and never rushes you into anything, and I never felt like I was lost at any point. we really made the most out of our weekly lessons. I had never felt that in-person guitar lessons were necessary, but I made so much progress having someone there to help me with what I was struggling with.Show More
John taught my son the fundamentals of playing acoustic guitar. He was a beginning student and seemed to make great progress during his lessons and enjoyed working with the new information each week. Highly highly recommend!
