    John has been our guitar teacher at The Branson School for over 12 years. His knowledge of theory and technique is both extensive and practical, and he is successful with both beginners and advanced players. He has worked with our jazz combos at Branson and teaches many of our students privately as well. John is well liked by his students and colleagues alike, and his warm, friendly manner sets students at ease and allows them to relax and enjoy making music.

About this pro

I have extensive knowledge on the inner workings of music. I will use well known music you have heard to help you understand the theory you are being taught. When you hear examples of the concepts, they become easier to grasp. I come to your home which means that you don't have to get in your car and drive to me. I am very dependable and punctual. I also teach lessons over Skype for a reduced rate. Your enjoyment of the lessons and your progress are extremely important to me. I have played in many different groups over the years from big bands to combos to duos to solo guitar. I still study music constantly because I never want to stop expanding my abilities, and can help you find the passion for music if it doesn't already exist. I will gladly meet with you at no cost to discuss your goals and what we can do to make those dreams come true. I have a good sense of humor, and I'm not a rigid disciplinarian. I figure if you want to learn enough to take lessons, then I can help you improve. I love sharing what I have learned over many years of study with my students. I love seeing the light bulb light up when they prove to me that they understand a concept. I love the fact that I am sharing my love and knowledge of music with my students. I have been lucky over the years to have had many great students, some of whom are still friends of mine after many years. The guitar is a beautiful instrument, and is a tool that can be with you for your entire life. It has brought so much joy to me and I know, with the proper guidance, it can enrich your life in so many ways. So, yes, I am blessed to be in the profession I'm in. I love playing, and I love teaching this amazing instrument.
