I began playing music in a blue collar, east coast town. I learned from playing in bars and clubs from the time I was 16 years old. I learned quickly how to play to and for an audience as well as how to connect with an audience as small as 5 people, and as large as 50,000 people. .
Playing lead guitar and singing, my first two bands toured extensively. We played tiny backrooms to big clubs to amphitheaters, opening for all sorts of people, such as: Love/Hate, The Misfits, Rainshine, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, Guttermouth, Firehouse, and other such bands. I'm the lead guitarist an
I've also spent a lot of time in the studio, and put out several indie rock CDs over the years, as well as assisted in audio engineering trouble shooting in the studio for a top 10 Billboard hit recording artist.
I am a Published novelist with "Nerves" (2012), "Dust Of The Dead" (2015) and "Ghost Heart" (2016). I have been in around 50 anthologies, short stories, magazines and novellas, and have been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award 3 times so far. I have also written for The Examiner, Diversity News Magazine, Fangoria, Dark Discoveries and others.
I have made a few feature films and worked with a cast of A list directors, producers and actors. I have also shot for Living With Frankenstein, Diversity News Television, The HWA, and Various projects ranging from book trailers to actors reels. I have edited for Film, Television and created Trailers from start to finish.

I'm told I'm pretty laid back, but that doesn't mean I'm not a stickler for discipline. In the end, it's up to you to do the runs and scales and chords, so there's only so much I can do. I try to inspire my students to do well, as it's the most rewarding thing you'll do, creatively speaking. There's nothing more satisfying than hearing music being made from your own hands. I can get you there, but you have to do your share.
One of the biggest goals I have is to get people up and playing as soon as possible because it's very inspiring to get there. I started teaching guitar when I was 16, and each one of my students was playing in bands within their first year. They were extremely motivated, and I hope I was key to their inspiration. They tell me I was.
I've also taught many people not interested in just performing, but who have come to music for different reasons. Some found it therapeutic, others wanted to do it, 'just because' -- and that's perfectly wonderful reasons to want to express yourself through music.
Another area I really love teaching is songwriting. I grew up in a time where playing lightning fast medieval scales was all the fashion. Well, that just wasn't in me. I was more into songs, so I focused on that area. I've written tons and tons, and have been the main songwriter for all the bands I've been a member of.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Recording Studio, piano, guitars, vocal booth and other instruments.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I've got my own guitar and bass. I can bring a small amplifier if need be.
*** Specialties ***
My methods vary from student to student. Usually I try and assess how each person is comfortable, and re-assess over the life of our lessons together, as it can change.
I'm a folk and rock player, but I've taught so many different styles at this point, it's great.

John is an extremely patient, giving and compassionate teacher. He knows how to trouble shoot and get you where you need to go. He was a born teacher and leader. His musicianship is excellent and he knows how to play, as well as perform. I highly recommend this teacher. I can't say enough wonderful things about him.
I'm a graduate of UCLA School of Engineering with a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering. I have a passion for explaining how the physical world works through math and physics along with 9 years of tutoring experience in those subjects, test prep, and mentorship programs. The teaching strategy I believe in emphasizes subject fundamentals, a powerful and necessary tool for higher problem solving. This strategy has proven very effective regardless of the student's educational background or mental ability. Besides being knowledgeable, I am motivating, caring, and patient in guiding your
Executive Functioning is a separate realm that tutoring can assist in. It deals with cognitive processes including organization, time management, and study skills. Much of the difficulty students face in academic subjects can be attributed to the lack of executive functioning. They either cannot keep up with the pace and workload that advanced courses demand or haven't figured out the best way to study for themselves. I am able to assess students' shortcomings and formulate a plan for higher achievement.

I'm happy to meet my students at any location near either Pacific Palisades or North Hollywood - I can teach music at any location with a piano, and I can tutor academic subjects
A note about availability - I keep this updated as accurately as possible, but because I travel over a wide area, your preferred time slot may not be possible for me, depending on the location of the lesson. Please contact me to discuss scheduling before you sign up.
If you choose to take lessons at my home location, please be aware that I have cats. If you have a phobia or allergy, this location won't be suitable for you.
