I started playing music at the age of 12. By 16 years old I started in my first working band as well as began my love for teaching guitar to others. Most of my musical career has been spent playing in 2 of the local cover bands in the Philadelphia area.

Teaching has always been a great interest to me. I've developed a teaching system over the years which not only decreases the time in which the student actually starts playing songs but also develops the students own creative ideas on the instrument. While it is very enjoyable to learn and play others artist's material, learning to create and write your own original ideas I believe is equally as important.

I had no idea that taking online lessons could be so seamless. John has been a solid instructor. His personality makes the lessons non-stressful, and at the same time very informative and productive. I never thought I'd learn as much as I am. Thanks John.

John is great. He is a very patient and thorough teacher. He has a ton of experience playing guitar and it shows. I'd recommend him to ANY of my friends and family who want to take some lessons, whether they are beginners or advanced players!
