I have an associates degree in music and I have been teaching lessons for more than five years now. I also have two years experience as a substitute teacher. As a substitute, I have taught all grades, all subjects, and I have helped out many kinds of students each with their own way of learning.

Besides teaching, I love learning too. Anytime I have a question I immediately start seeking out the answer. Learning never stops!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons will be very informative. I have a lot of information to get out all the time. Don't be surprised if something I show you blows your mind. I also like to have fun and I'm sure my students do too. There won't be a boring lesson from me.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide my acoustic guitar, picks, and tuner and that's really all they need as well. If they do not have an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar with an amplifier is also fine.

I'll occasionally bring my laptop with me to use some music software to assist in my lessons.

I'll always have pens and paper so I can make notes or diagrams if needed.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in many musical genres including rock, ska, punk, progressive, jazz, folk, and more.

My son was new guitar player, he has now had several lessons with John. We have seen his skills grown exponentially. John really connects with him and keeps him engaged. He has taught him soo much in such a short span of time. John is a fantastic teacher!

John seems to customize his lesson to you. He teaches the basic, and theory behind why these chords go together and helps you learn the music you are interested in. He goes at a slow pace, so that you have time to practice and really pick up what he is showing you
