Amazing and patient tutor and musician.

My son, 14, has really taken to John's calm and reassuring style of instruction. He is growing as a musician. John is positive and consistent. We could not be more pleased.

Charles, 21 lessons with John

Excellent rapport with my son, knowledge and expertise.

John has quickly established rapport with my 12 years old son and made every lesson fun and productive. He didn't shy from starting with basics, yet kept introducing new concepts of more and more complexity.

Patient and Entertaining

My son has been taking lessons with John for a long time. He went from a C in band to a solid A. He has come a long way with the support and help John has provided. He is patient and keeps the lessons entertaining. I highly recommend him.

Patient and Entertaining

My son is 11 and is very enthusiastic about playing trumpet, but with school going all virtual, it has been difficult for him to learn. John was AMAZING. He was patient and provided great tips. My son is now just gushing about the lesson and how much fun he had. John has a great setup for remote teaching. I highly recommend him. We are going to continue the lessons.

GIVES ATTENTION TO THE BASICS AND BUILDING THE FOUNDATION OF PLAYING

Being more aware and giving attention to my breath support which, i am sure, will build and support my embouchure. So will give a little time and see what developes

Richard, 9 lessons with John

Knowledgeable and experienced

John taught him to go slow and do long tones on the C scale main focus is on getting his embouchure in the right position while keeping the front of his lips flat corners firm and and open free air moving through the aperture."

John is a great instructor

I’m amazed at his patience and caring for young minds learning the trumpet. We are blessed to have him teach my son. He is gaining enthusiasm and getting better playing. We are grateful for his expertise!

Great first lesson!

Gave me great tips on the fundamentals. Seems willing to work with me at my (SLOW) pace, as I still work full time at 100hr/wk "day job". I look forward to taking some more lessons with him. Can't wait to try a mouthpiece he recommended.
