Let's have fun playing music!
Are you:
  • A beginner with no musical experience?
  • A parent who has played the guitar in the past?
  • An adult, a homemaker, a student, or professional in search of a fulfilling new hobby?
  • An educator wanting to work on fingerpicking, lead guitar, music theory, or ear training?
  • A grandparent, camp counselor, babysitter, daycare provider, teacher or...?
Then please allow me to help you achieve your musical goals.  My name is John Spivack, and I have been performing and teaching for over 25 years.  I am a parent.  I have a teaching credential, and I own a business, Learning Quest, which markets the children's educational products I create. Together we can work on the skills that will get you playing and learning while having a good time.
We can:
  • Learn to strum and fingerpick, play solos and duets
  • Pursue band skills, ear training, and music fundamentals
  • Work on music-reading and the basics ... become literate in the language of music, so you can learn independently!
  • Use scales, licks, and arpeggios to create your own songs and/or lead ideas
  • Sing and play simple, entertaining songs for your family, church, or classroom
  • Explore chords and progressions- simple to advanced

Please give me a call (916) 346-8270 to discuss scheduling, rates, and your musical goals.  For more information, visit my websites at www.FretStrumwell.com or www.LearningQuestInfo.com.
