“I have always felt that learning to play an instrument, and then playing only other people’s music, was a journey only half completed. I have a proven approach that will help take the mystique out of writing and help you write songs you will be proud of.” ~ John Defoore
John Defoore’s comprehensive approach to music instruction includes not only guitar, but songwriting.
For more than 40 years, his mission has been to introduce everyday people to the art and science, heart and soul of playing the guitar. One of his greatest joys in this process is encouraging his students by “giving them permission” to write their own songs.
The way he see’s it, EVERYONE can make their own music and there’s no greater joy as you learn guitar than to create your own songs and be able to sing and play them for yourself, for your friends and family, and even for the world if that’s what they want to do.
Since the mid 70’s John has taught people from 8 to 85 years old to write their own original songs. He has or has had students writing songs from rock to country, folk to jazz. He knows that most people don’t think that they can write, but give him a chance and he will prove otherwise. Just check out his students’ original songs.
