John has taught my 9 years son since January 2019 for both piano and violin. My son loves his lessons and enjoys what he learned from the lessons. John is a good instruments tutor and highly recommend him to whoever would like to learn piano and violin.

My 10yo daughter has been taking piano lessons from John the last 6 months. She really enjoys her lessons and has shown great enthusiasm in tackling her homework. This is a credit to John and aligns with what we want for our child, that is to enjoy what you do and do your best at it.

Excellent teacher! My son has violin lessons with John for only 1 term and now he is starting to read notes and has great improvement on his violin skills. John is kind, patient, listening to his student and adjusts the teaching to suit my son violin learning level. If you are looking for a music teacher, I would recommend John. Cheers :-)

John is very patient and structured. He tailored lesson material for individuals which I found his approach really helpful. I can see great improvement after every lesson. I had a great term learning from him and I really look forward to the next term ??

Thanks for your lessons John, I have been inspired no end since you first showed be how to use the Ableton Live workstation. I can now program and record my own music and make my own backing tracks and I am looking forward to more lessons so I can become a much better Piano player. Oh and I look forward to hearing your tips on making my vocals sound better once they have been recorded, now that will be a challenge! See you next week. Cheers Kim

John is a really nice and patient piano teacher who understands what I need. What I really like about him is that unlike other piano teachers, he chooses the resources very carefully so that I do not feel overwhelmed when I’m playing under his guidance. The learning environment is excellent and really comfy.
