The Guitar Sanctuary Performance Academy has been a fan of John Wynn for years. John was the proprietor of John Wynn Guitar Studio located in Historic Downtown McKinney. John started that business in 1999 and served the community as a resource for guitar lessons, workshops, and concerts. In the Summer of 2018 we began talking with John about partnering with us in our Performance Academy. John joined our instruction staff in late Summer 2018.
John grew up in a home where his mother taught piano lessons and where he learned guitar and ukulele at an early age. John attended college and studied classical guitar in Florida. John’s studies also include Master Classes with Christopher Parkening, John Knowles, and Muriel Anderson.
John's teaching style is structured yet open to new ideas. His main objective is to help foster a love of music and confidence to share it with others. John specializes in classical guitar, modern acoustic guitar and beginning ukulele. He teaches all styles of music notation as well as most musical styles. John works well with students ages 6 and up.
John has performed with a variety of artists around the country and is a regular performer in the McKinney music scene. He has recorded several solo guitar compilations and been featured on several other artist projects.
John is currently available for lessons on Tuesdays.
