- Guitar tutor
I've been teaching Guitar and Bass for eight years, to people of all ages and skill levels, and did so whilst earning a music degree from Hertfordshire University in 2011. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy playing with my band, trying to play Badminton, and hiking.
Guitar, Ukulele and Piano tutor
Before moving to the UK John had been playing guitar professionally for the past two decades in various bands & shows in South Africa where he was born & grew up. He studied Jazz & carved out a reputation as a guitar player, headlining music festivals and doing session work for a wide variety of bands of different genre. He also ran a very successful guitar teaching school & taught countless people the secrets to playing on the guitar that which they hear in their mind.
John then decided to moved here to the UK & broaden his horizons helping young people with the desire to learn play like their heroes, reach their goals and realise their dreams upon the guitar.
