"No matter what your level of playing, John McCrea will make you better. John combines exceptional musicality with infinite patience and excellent teaching skills. I've been a student of John's for more than 15 years, and I sincerely believe he is one of the top 10 players and teachers in the whole of the San Francisco Bay Area."

What Students Say
"John is an outstanding guitar teacher! At age 6, our daughter, Sydney, started started guitar lessons with John. Two years later, she is still playing the guitar and loving music! John is incredibly patient and encouraging, which has translated into our daughter feeling motivated, confident and excited to play guitar. In addition to leaning how to read and understand music from a technical perspective, John is also teaching Sydney about music and has built on her interest in blues and rock. Sydney will be John's student for many years to come!
