I perform solo guitar works by celebrated composers from all over the world spanning 500 years. From bossa nova to Bach, the versatile range of the guitar's repertoire can create the perfect ambience for the most memorable occasions.
Whether performing as background music, as a featured artist, or anything in between, I'm happy to accommodate each client uniquely. Recent events include weddings, wine tastings, 'cultural arts' events, dinner parties, receptions, featured concerts, and more.
Price Range: $200-$1000

John holds B.A. and Master's degrees in Guitar Performance, and taught classical guitar courses at East Carolina University during his graduate assistantship with Dr. Elliot Frank, 2009-2011. John has served on the faculties of Community School of the Arts in Charlotte and Master's Musicians School of Music in Waxhaw, NC. John's performances have been high praised by audiences and described as "inspiring" and "captivating". Jesus Christ has been John's anchor and guiding light throughout life.
