About this pro

Johnny is a multi-instrumentalist on saxophone, flute, piano, guitar, and clarinet. A musician since childhood, Johnny couldn’t wait to get his first clarinet in elementary school after hearing the high school marching band play. He’s studied multiple genres of music including classical, jazz, rock, ska, samba, latin, and more. He’s been playing professionally since he was 19, and has had the opportunity to study and perform with his music professors and other established musicians throughout the U.S. and Mexico.

Johnny is excited about helping students of all ages get to where they want to go whether it’s learning a new instrument, finding their own sound, expressing their ideas, or playing gigs. He will help them become the best musician they want to be. Johnny’s philosophy is that brains retain more when the environment is relaxed and low-stress. That’s why his lessons are so much fun! He teaches piano, guitar, saxophone, flute, and clarinet.

Johnny is currently accepting new students.

I love to help people learn how to play music

    John is very knowledgeable and makes learning music a lot of fun . His lessons are tailored to meet the needs of the student. His encouraging personality motivates me to practice and want to play music.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Im teaching all my lessons online at this time. I use Piano Adventures Lesson books to teach my piano students.  
I also like to help students find music that inspires them  to practice and play music .
