Hi, I’m John Prefontaine, owner and founder of JP Guitar Studio.
My lifelong passion for music has allowed me to be involved with all areas of the music industry, from performing in and managing bands, to mixing live sound and providing expert audio production.
In 2007, I founded JP Guitar Studio with the goal of developing the most professional one stop tuition, recording and guitar repair service in Brisbane. Located in Capalaba, we strive to offer the most flexible, versatile and friendly tuition service possible. time.
Piano, Guitar, Bass
I teach because I enjoy helping people overcome challenges and see them achieve their goals. Through my own personal development, I have collected a number of techniques, exercises and methods that I believe are the most effective and fun ways to learn everything about the drum kit.
I have been playing drums for a nearly a decade and have been a past and present member of many different bands, ranging from Jazz to Metal. I’ve just finished my Bachelor of Musical Performance in Drums and Vocals and am currently the drummer for the Graham Moes Band. I am extremely excited to be part of the JP Guitar Studio Team
I LOVE Singing. So to teach what I love was a ‘no brainer’. Why not share the knowledge and experience i’ve acquired to those willing to learn?
I really enjoy seeing the instant gratification my students get when they finally ‘Nail’ that one song or when they see improvements during their practise.
Clarinet, Saxophone, Flute
My philosophy is to share my passion for music with all of my students and inspire them to be the best they can be. Through fun, exciting and engaging lessons I will develop their technical skills as well as their musicality, tone and love for music. Whether it be beginning an instrument, AMEB exams, orchestral auditions, school music or just playing as a hobby I will put one hundred percent of my heart and experience into my lessons.
