About Me

Hey! My name is TJ Gesner, and I'm the store manager of the Johns Creek Music & Arts! I was born in San Antonio, Texas but spent most of my life in Florida and Georgia. 

I've been heavily influenced by music since the age of 10, but when I saw Jimi Hendrix's performance at Woodstock, I decided I would be a guitar player. 

I got my first guitar when I was in the 6th grade and soon began playing with a few close friends. Currently, I play a Fender Tom Delonge Signature Stratocaster which I got 12 years ago and I will never get rid of it, ever! Also, I play a Fender American Standard Telecaster and a Takimine Acoustic/Electric which my parents actually got from Music & Arts in Peachtree City, GA! In high school, I played in a band with my close friends and we were called Straight On Til Morning. There's nothing quite like performing on stage with your friends. Soon after, I discovered a passion for being in the recording studio and now, I have a degree in Music Production Technology. 

I began my career in music retail in the fall of 2010 and became Manager of the Johns Creek location in January of 2013. I absolutely love seeing all of our students learn and grow and it feels great to be there when a young musician gets their first instrument!

So whatever your instrument may be, our store has everything from instruments, to sheet music and accessories, repairs, and even music lessons! 

Come on by! I can't wait to see you!
