Teaching since:

I am a professional modern musician specializing as a guitar/ bass, songwriting, and recording arts instructor. I completed my studies at Mira Costa College and specialized in Music Theory, Song Writing, Recording Arts and Midi Music production.

Students can expect to improve week to week in their their chosen area of interest. I can help any student to play with freedom and confidence. I also specialize in helping the individual find their unique sound in music while having a wonderful time doing it. Students will learn to read and write music, pursue excellence, and express their dreams.

I currently teach many students of all different ages, experience levels, and styles. In my program I offer the benefits of having studied music performance, recording arts, and teaching for over 30 years.

I really enjoy learning guitar with John. He is very knowledgable about music, and is patient and gentle in his teaching style. I'm well on my way to turning my lyrics into songs thanks to John's lessons and influence.

John is an outstanding guitar teacher. I have taken lessons from multiple instructors over the years and hands down his teaching is the best. His ability to take complex ideas and formulate them into an easy to understand curriculum is awesome. He makes learning any song much easier and his method is very inspirational. I leave every lesson wanting to play guitar for hours and I have recommended him to many friends and family members. With his 30 years of experience, his passion for all styles of music, and his friendly and positive nature there really isn't any better teacher in the valley.

John has built not only my guitar skills, but music skills overall. He continues to support me musically and I still take a lesson from him when I can because I always leave with tons of useful information. I’m lucky to have John as a guitar and music teacher.
