Edmonton Academy of Music is a southwest Edmonton music school that prioritizes building long-lasting relationships with our students—training and guiding them through their technique, repertoire and performance.

John McDonnell

Hello my name is

John McDonnell, and I teach:

John started playing guitar at the age of 14, learning improvisation and rock music first, then gradually leaning towards classical guitar.

He has been teaching professionally since 2006 and finds it very rewarding work. John can teach and help students prepare for Royal Conservatory of Music examinations, Grant MacEwan/UofA auditions, but can also teach rock and pop music techniques. Most teaching is done through a combination of student requests and a variety of method books.

With the recent completion of the Grade 10 guitar exam John is working harder than ever towards the ARCT diploma.
