Music Theory Lessons
I really enjoyed my Music Theory and Guitar lessons with John. You can tell right away that he has a great understanding of music and knows a large variety of genres/songs. With him I learned how music is pieced together to create harmonious sounds. As well, I learned a good general knowledge of playing guitar; and with continued practice, can pick it up whenever I feel and just jam. I highly recommend John to anyone wanting to advance their musical knowledge, playing or otherwise. He is patient, well versed and just a really nice person to learn from. 🙂Dec 29, 2018Verified
Guitar Lessons (for adults)
I took weekly guitar lessons with John in Charlotte. He was great. As an adult learner, and someone who had never picked up a guitar before, I found that I progressed quickly, and John was always there for guidance and quickly addressed any difficulty or trouble I was having. I would highly recommend him!!Jan 28, 2017Verified
Guitar Lessons (for adults)
I am taking guitar lessons from John and I couldn't be more pleased. He is very pleasant and easygoing, but he also loves music and teaching and takes his work seriously. He uses really great tech tools like phone apps to help the process at home and he is good with communication. I look forward to continuing to learn!Oct 14, 2016Verified
Bass Guitar Lessons (for children or teenagers)
Our 11 year old son has been receiving guitar lessons from Mr Bishop for almost two years now and we couldn't be happier! He is now able to strum chords, read advanced music, sing and perform in recitals in front of 50+ people. It has been exciting to watch our sons skills and passion for music grow.Dec 3, 2018Verified
