I could not be happier with John. Not only is he a talented player, an excellent teacher, he is a really great guy. I would have never expected to get help outside my scheduled lesson times. Most teachers will tell you if you need something just ask. Few actually mean but John has proved it time and time again. He has always been quick to return my texts. He has sent me helpful info days after my class. During the classes he is even more attentive to my needs. John molds his instructions around what I need at the time. I am constantly causing him to change his lesson plan on the fly and he never skips a beat.

Even just from the first lesson, I can tell that John and I will enjoy many month and (hopefully years) or learning instruments together. Right now, we’ll just stick to the banjo though. He’s attentive, responsive, patient, and accommodating.

He is an amazing teacher! I learned a lot from him in a short amount of time. His lessons are easy to follow and are packed with a lot of useful information. I highly recommend this teacher!

I had the greatest experience hands down!! First my apologies for not adding my review sooner. I read reviews like most of us do and ran across this Gem. He was everything the reviews said and more. Patient honest professional flexible kind and funny. I’m the kinda girl that’s known for how do I say it or how do they (my family) describe me go big or go home or get the best first I’m worth it. That’s how and why I choose John. It was just icing on the cake that he had similar interest like playing Bass and in Church. So if your looking for top of the line first class look no further you just found him. Check him out and see for yourself!

I am a beginning banjo player who only has my ambition and 50 year old banjo. John is helping me bridge the gap between ambition and knowing how to play. He is personable and takes away all anxiety about learning to play. Great guy! Highly recommend!!
