HI! I'M JOHN...

I've been a full time music instructor and music school owner since 2004. I teach adults and kids... beginners, hobby-ists and pro-musicians... out of my professional studio in the West Highlands Neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. My students often comment that I'm patient, kind and intuitive... That I teach in down-to-earth and engaging ways... And that they learn more in a shorter time than they ever thought possible!

I look forward to working with you!

FREE INTRO LESSON

I offer a free, full length, introductory lesson (not a just consultation). So you can see if it's right for you.

LESSONS FOR ALL

Lessons for all ages: adults and kids. All abilities: never-ever, beginning, intermediate and advanced. And all reasons: just for yourself, just for fun, just curious, hobby-ist, and pro-musician or pro-vocalist.

CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

I also teach workshops and classes in: Mindful Music, home studio recording, kids rock band, songwriting and performance !

ANY MUSICAL STYLE

Learn any style you want: rock, folk, pop, blues, country, bluegrass, heavy metal, R&B, Broadway, world, jazz and almost any other style you desire.

LEARN WHAT YOU WANT

Your lessons are about you, and your musical wishes and desires! I offer fun, inspiring, practical, customized-to-you instruction geared to your individual interests, goals and pace.

REAL MUSIC. RIGHT AWAY!

I'll help you immediately make music you enjoy! And you'll see real improvement right away! All while complimenting your unique musical journey with technical and music theory skills that are practical and relevant to you.

NEVER SUNG, PLAYED OR TAKEN LESSONS?

No worries! You've come to the right place! I teach lessons for never-ever students in a simple, relaxed and straight-forward way that anyone can easily understand and integrate... Even those who may think they are non-musical and can't hold a tune...

IN A BAND? PRO MUSICIAN OR VOCALIST?

I've worked with many local bands, artists and singers to help them improve their vocal abilities, upgrade their musical skills, and find and enhance their own unique sound. Find out more on the Lessons Overview & Teaching Philosophy page.

THINK YOU CAN'T SING?

Anyone can learn! At any point in their lives! No kidding! Read the "special note" about this on the Lessons Overview & Teaching Philosophy page.

DON'T HAVE A GUITAR?

No problem! You can use one of mine for your intro lesson. And when you come in, I can help you figure out what guitar will work best for budget and needs. Or you can contact me for free guitar buying advice.

GIFT CERTIFICATES

Give the awesome gift of music lessons! And you'll receive 5 lessons for the price of 4! Why? Because you deserve the same deal as students who come in for a free intro lesson! Go to the Gift Certificates page for details.

QUESTIONS?

There is a ton of great info elsewhere on this site, including the FAQ page. Or if you have questions or would like to talk about lessons, feel free to contact me. I look forward to talking with you!

I co-own and teach an improv summer camp for kids called Camp CHAOSity: A week of artistic discovery for kids! Joy. Collaboration. Empowerment. Community. Improv, Music & Writing
