Simply the best guitar teacher ive ever had! John has a very special way of teaching where he makes sure that any challenge is overcome! I am getting results thanks to John's method of teaching!
First, figuring out what the student wants! Some just want to learn to play their favorite songs. Some want to be the best guitar player in the world. Everyone is different so every lesson is different. Most important for me is that you are having fun!
About 22 year of playing and about 18 years of teaching. I've taught at various music schools in Sweden and USA (most notable LA College for Music in Pasadena)
$50/hour. Keeps it simple :)
I've always enjoyed sharing knowledge with people and just as I learn from other, I like to pass some of it on in return.
Youngest was 5. Older 63. So, pretty wide range. The love for music is universal.
Does Taco Tuesday count?
Find someone that you jel with and listens to you. It's important to remember that it's all about the student. The job for the teacher is to figure out the best way to get information across as easily as possible.
Just make sure the teacher is interested in what YOU want. I don't think a set "one fits all" formula is very effective when you're dealing with something creative. Just make sure you're on the same page and you should be fine.
