Hi, I'm John. I have been a music educator and professional musician for many years, with degrees in music education, educational technology, and educational administration. I have years of experience teaching middle and high school students, adult intensive workshops, and one-on-one tutoring in a large variety of computer applications and music. Important aspects of my instruction include individualized teaching to help my learners lock in to the concepts they want to know and have a fun and enjoyable experience while building skills. I love to see the light bulbs go off for my learners.

I have extensive knowledge in music technology, music theory, music production and have taught all of these in classroom and one-on-one settings. I also have expert knowledge in a variety of computer applications including Logic Pro X, Finale, Photoshop, Office and more. I bring years of professional knowledge in music performance, engineering, recording technique, mastering, instrumental and theory instruction. I have taught week-long intensive workshops as well as tutoring sessions in web design, Photoshop, Microsoft Office, iPad, and many other apps for over 22 years to adult and middle/high school learners.

I am happy to tailor tutoring to meet your needs and goals. If you are interested in music production, theory, composition skills, or computer application skills, feel free to contact me. I am easy to reach and provide prompt responses.

Knowledgable, Kind, Patient, & Intuitive - a Natural Teacher

It's not often I come across someone who is so in tune with my needs as a student that I feel like he's reading my mind! I really like his approach, honesty, and time he takes to collect notes and send back to me and will definitely be going back for more music lessons.

Jeff, 9 lessons with John

Excellent instructor

Extremely knowledgeable, able to adapt to your specific needs, friendly, goes with the flow yet has a big-pic plan. I sought John out for help with Logic EQ ... learned so much more. Excellent instructor.

Doggedly, John does not give up!

John is patient but focused. There is a lot of things for me to learn and the platform to learn it has to be created as well. And that was a barrier for me. John helped resurrect getting midi from an obsolete keyboard/workstation. Step one of three! Yea, Thanks , John. you off-time research helped a great deal.
