"I got into the radio business because I'm a huge music fan. But it was so frustrating that I didn't know how to play an instrument. Working with John has been a great experience. Regardless of your skill level. John sees the potential in every person to be a great player. If you are thinking about learning guitar, Michigan Rock School should be your first call"
