John has a passion for playing and teaching guitar. After working with thousands of musicians of all ages and levels, he noticed that his unique teaching methods worked for everybody, both successful professionals as well as beginners. His teaching methods also worked fast! “When I first heard someone tell me that they learned more from me in one lesson than they had in ten lessons with their previous teacher, I took it as a nice compliment. Then after hearing the same exact statement from hundreds of students, that’s when I decided that I needed to create this video series, so that more people could learn from the same methods, and have a lot of fun doing it.”

In addition to offering his private music and guitar instruction, John is also a peak performance coach for musicians. He works with bands and individual musicians creating breakthroughs and overcoming obstacles such as performance anxiety, carpel tunnel syndrome without surgery, inter-band communication and many other challenges that musicians – from beginners to seasoned professionals – face every day.
