John taught a fundamental rock band class at KIPP Houston High School for five years. He earned an AAS in Audio Engineering and has been teaching guitar for over ten years. Not a "learn to shred" class.

From beginning to end, you'll learn about chords and how to construct them; you'll learn scales and how they interact with each other; you'll learn how to put your ideas together and create a song. After 6 months of hour long classes you should be ready to work on your own.

John's a nice guy , who helped me with some start-up basics, as well as helping me get a better idea of what techniques, scales, and chords to use, that would help me play the music I want to. Knowledgeable, and patient. Highly recommend you check him out.

I enjoy the lessons

Even though I am not familiar to music (other than listening), John has been very patient with me. He makes sure that we don't go too fast or too slow on the teaching/learning process. One of the best things about John is that he welcomes any questions or concerns I may have. So even if I don't make it to be a Famous Rock Star, John is there to teach me to learn to play like one. Thanks John!!!
