About John Rodriguez



My name is John. I studied classical, jazz, and music theory in high school, and two years at Pima college. I have been teaching for ten years. I enjoy teaching childrens guitar, making it fun and playful while building skill at the same time. I teach all style of guitar. Bass and Ukulele as well, along with music theory.

I like to record awesome jams with students and burn them to cd, to show their recordings to peers, or use them to measure progress or both. I like using drums as well to teach guitar players timing and to simulate playing in a real life setting. I use lots of fun musical games as well to help make timing and theory more fun and easy. Just want to play cover tunes from the radio or youtube? No problem, I do that a lot too!
