About John

John Udinsky Jr is a guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, arranger and composer from Philadelphia, PA. From a humble beginning as  a PMEA All-State Musician and an alumni of the Hatboro-Horsham School District, John went on to earn a B.M. in Jazz Guitar Performance from The University of the Arts. During his time there, he was a member of the school's prestigious 'Z Big Band' ensemble.

After graduating in the spring of 2014, Udinsky began to widen his network by freelancing in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York tri-state area professionally, lending his talents to various singer-songwriters and jazz groups. This led to his recruitment into the Philadelphia based jam band 'Hambone Relay' in 2015. In 2016 they released an LP entitled 'Free Hugs' and are currently touring the east coast with their high energy live shows.

Fluid in both the acoustic and electric guitars, John's unique style draws heavily from Jazz, Funk, Pop, Rock, & Blues influences. Additional skills include improvisation, music theory, songwriting & arranging. Lessons with John prioritize development of a consistent practice routine, a practical application of music theory, and exploring the creative process all while learning the essentials of the instrument.
