About John Mcnicholas
Get to know John Mcnicholas
I have been a performing musician since I was 16 years old. I play guitar, keyboards, bass, ukulele, and just love singing and writing songs. I’ve been featured on about 30 albums by The Sunset District, The Good Graces, Spiller, Parade in Paris, Lie and many more.
I am a sponge when it comes to new music and I encourage all my students to seek out new and wonderful sounds.
After 12 years as a full-time musician I returned to college to obtain my BA in Information Technology and after 20+ years in the field I am returning full-time to teaching and performing again with a technology forward approach to instruction with uniquely tailored lessons crafted for each student while taking advantage of remote learning, instructional videos and tutorials.
I’ve performed alongside bands as diverse as Patti Smith, The Indigo Girls, Superchunk, Marilyn Manson, Fishbone, Soundgarden, G. Love, and many more.
