About: John Began his guitar playing experience in 1968 @ the age of 16 years whilst in his final term at Boarding School in Margate. A fellow pupil brought one in to class. Prior to then John had never had a guitar or even touched one. During the Summer holiday period just prior to going to Art College he devoted those weeks to practicing on a cheap 'n' nasty guitar and using a Beatles Seargant Peppers song book with guitar chords. Didn't make much progress for the next 24 years, then in 1992 he had the opportunity of working with the then Spiral Arts Organisation based in Gillingham. In addition to making a comeback to art by having the opportunies to exhibit and sell, he was introduced to the Rainham Folk at the Oast Folk Club. By studying the techniques of various players and getting some feedback, managed to perfect his own style. He was able to perform at a number of small venues such as the Hornimans Museum in London, Spiral Arts, Radio Kent, Lordswood Junior School, as well as the Folk @ the Oast and the "Moor or Less Folk Club. John has been a freelance guitar tutor since 2000 and has not looked back. He has taught a variety of students such as 2 Fire Fighters a Doctor 2 Police Officers, Financial service Profesionals and many more. Being passionate about the Guitar John is keen to take on new pupils and teaches on the week ends as well as week days. He can pass on to you the benefits of many years experience, hopefully it won't take you as long as it did John to get the mastery of the instrument
