I found John's school from his ad at a local guitar store. I had started lessons with another instructor earlier in the year and it turned me off! It wasn't fun. I knew there was somebody else out there to fit me. After some research and phone inquiries with different instructors, I decided to try John's school. First lesson in May 2012. I hit it off and new it was the right choice. I'm 48 years old and finally getting the opportunity to learn and play guitar. I don't have time to learn how to read music, theory, etc. I want o play my favorite bands. John started with basics and by the first night, I was playing basic rock chords. John teaches with patience and will go at your speed and abilities, not his. He is passionate about music and his students desire to learn. This school is his full time gig. No other "day job". Now I'm playing full songs, not just the opening riff. He is more than a guitar teacher. He has the qualities of a therapist also! I consider him a friend now. There isn't much to change or improve on with this experience so far. He is very flexible and accessible for information and questions. The atmosphere is fun and relaxing but full of positive energy and our favorite music! You cant lose by at least trying his school for even one month and see how it goes? I made a good choice.

I had a hand injury 30 plus years ago, and gave up on ever playing again. I went back to Atlanta to my old stomping grounds, and found myself in the middle of a jam session with my old band mates, and other friends. The desire to get back on the guitar was overwhelming, and found John. He, and I talked about a few things I felt like I needed to work on with a hand impairment. John has worked with me for a few months. I'm grateful to have found John, he has made it fun to challenge myself, and start to learn playing in a whole new light. If your looking for a place that teaches through hands on experience, and like to challenge yourself ( no matter what level you're at ) then John is your man. Thanks John

John has been my Guitar Teacher for the last 5 years and I dont even know where to start to explain how much John has done for me not only as a musican, but as a person as well. From day one John has had my highest respect and deepest admiration in what a Guitar player really is. He is incredibly humble about it, but John (without a doubt) is the most phenominal player i've had the honor to know, he is very dedicated to his craft and so on top of his game, and to say the least....extremely talented. John was always very patient with me in my lessons and one thing I appreciated most was that he made MY musical goals HIS musical goals. Right away, he asked me what I wanted to acomplish on guitar and we just tackled goal, after goal, after goal with some tricks along the way. Next thing I knew, I was playing things on Guitar that would have taken me MONTHS to learn on my own. I can easily say that if I did not take lessons from John I would not be HALF the guitar player I am today. For example, when I was taking a Placement Exam to qualify for a Music Theory class in college at MSU the only theory I knew was from everything I learned taking lessons from John. In the end I passed my exam and qualified for that Music Theory class with flying colors! One last thing I would like to say, is that John has taught me important lessons about music away from my Guitar that have even helped me in non-musical situations. There would be days where I would beat myself up on my playing or feel down about my situation with various bands here and there and John has rebuilt my confidence time and time again. He made me feel better about myself and taught me actually how to stand up not only for myself but my music. I'll put it this way, he believed in me when I myself did not. He does not get paid for that and he did it for no other reason besides the fact that he CARED. To the people reading this, know that John Taylor has so much more to offer than the average Guitar teacher and i STRONGLY advise that if you want to take lessons, HE IS YOUR BEST CHOICE! -Tommy Aragon

I have not taken any lessons from John Taylor, but have watched some of his instruction videos. Just by watching those I have picked up a few tips that has made my playing a little better. I had a few bad habits and Mr. Taylor's tips allowed me to correct them. Just a few little things, but it has made a difference.
