Guitar Teacher, Bass & Guitar Player, Operations & Business Development
John has been playing modern acoustic and electric guitar and electric bass for some 32 years with a hands on approach for students to starting learning how to play the instrument leading to students being group or band playing. John has played live pop, rock and funk music on stage with some awesome musicians over those years and continues to do so to date. He runs regular workshops, jamming nights, and can put a band together quickly with his network of contacts to play live whether it’s open mic nights, gig’s for birthday parties, weddings or corporate functions.
With a long-standing passion from his high school rock band days as an electric bass,acoustic and electric guitar enthusiast and continuing playing and learning into adulthood John brings an extensive business career and combines music and commerce for the greater good.
As the Inner West Institute of Music’s operations and business expansion manager John’s role is to source and expand all B2B opportunities including studio expansions, fit outs and renovations, safety and compliance and the introduction of musical programmes in Sydney’s private and public schools including early childhood learning centres as well as adult participation. John certainly walks and talks the IWIM’s philosophy of “music is for everyone”.
