I am really looking forward to hearing from enthusiastic individuals or parents who are looking for that something extra special beyond what's out there to challenge and motivate you. I absolutely love what I do!
I’m an absolutely passionate and enthusiastic lover of music with years of experience as a professional college lecturer. I would be able to teach:
Music Production - Vocal Performance - Piano Lessons - Music Composition and Songwriting (either on guitar or piano/keyboard).
I am also available for students' project support and for artistic production (example songwriting/recording/music production for a song/EP/album at a different rate which would be discussed before booking).
*My Cancellation Policy*
I would require a 24-48 hour notice period this is to protect you and myself. I do have a high volume of requests that I continuously have to turn down students, projects, international collaborations, etc… due to my commitment with my students (including other agencies too and not just on here). It would only be fair for both sides, just like you would expect me to be there - so would I.
I arrange everything with priority to my lessons booked with you. Thank you for your understanding.

He is a really fun person - very engaging and inspiring. He is flexible to working on what you want to achieve.
Especially if you are mainly interested in having fun and being inspired to sing, I would definitely recommend John.
It is not just a singing class but creative seminar: an education about music and an exploration of this strange and complicated instrument that I have been unknowingly walking around in all this time.
