Created rock bands from selected high school students. Showed them how to play, write songs, co-exist in a band setting, set up and tear down stage equipment and even put on a show.
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.+ Read More
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!!!
