Biography

My Commitment to You: To help you grow musically. Enthusiasm and passion keeps you going, so I’m constantly thinking of new ways to spark that interest. We’re committed to your learning, and to providing fun & easy-to-follow programs!

A Bit of History: Most of you know me from the Instructional DVDs, but did you know that I started teaching music at the age of 13? Giving private guitar instruction out of my parents’ house, I spent the cash I earned on pizza and soda for my friends; I thought I was Donald Trump!

In 1985 – when VHS videos became popular – the idea of teaching lessons to the masses was born. With big hair and spandex, and my parents’ living room serving as a backdrop, I created four, fairly successful instructional programs. With guitar magazine advertisements, the business was on its way.

In 1995, I felt this system of teaching was working, but could use a boost. Looking toward the future – and, finding that the Internet would play a key role in everyday life – my interest peaked towards online instruction. But, the package still wasn’t complete.

With the rise in popularity of the DVD, I sensed that this could be the final piece to our programs. After mounds of research, we recognized this powerful, dynamic medium was the future of teaching. DVD instruction, featuring full Internet support, created what The Rock House Method is today.

    There ya go John, I fixed your artist page up. That is the bio straight from his website, as well as a pic right off his MySpace, so no copyright issues here.
