"John is a fine professional trumpet player and musician! I have performed as his accompanist (organ and piano) numerous times, and find him both musically excellent and easy to work with. I have also heard very positive comments about his teaching (from private student and parent). I recommend him without reservation."

"John King possesses the wonderful combination of being both an extremely talented trumpet player, with the vast knowledge of trumpet pedogogy to draw from. His performing and teaching credentials speak for themselves, and I have been impressed with his professionalism and ease of which to work with every time I've had the experience of working with him.

"My son took private trumpet lessons from John King for several years. With John's guidance, he became one of the best trumpet players in the large group of trumpet players in his school. I appreciated the fact that John always challenged my son to push to the limit of his ability. John has excellent understanding of the skills and technique needed to be a top musician, combined with the ability to pass it on to others. His personal perfectionism carries over to his students and commands great respect. I heartily recommend John King to all levels of the trumpet student."

"My son has become a very proficient trumpet player, receiving many accolades from his school band instructor, thanks to John's teaching methods. And, perhaps a far better indicator for many, my son looks forward to his lesson. He enjoys his time with John, and I enjoy watching his self esteem and abilities continually grow. "

He is great at coming up with analogies that help his students clearly understand the concepts he is teaching. He is enthusiastic about music and enjoys teaching.

"John did a fabulous job at introducing my daughter to trumpet. When she started she could barely make a sound on the trumpet, then within a few weeks, she was playing Hot Cross Buns, etc. John was very patient and encouraging. We highly recommend him!"
