My name is John March. As an artist and musician I have devoted my life to exploring music and all aspects of Guitar playing, and also integrating Audio technology/production to help myself and other artists to be able to express themselves and bring their art out into the world. As a music teacher I strive to help students find their own unique voice on their instrument.
I am a Session Guitarist, Producer, Sound Mixer, Audio Technologist and Jazz and Blues musician. I divide my time between playing, Producing and Mixing. I was trained at the Record Plant in NYC as an engineer and Synclavier Programmer, I also have studied guitar with teachers like John Abercrombie, Mick Goodrick, John Scofield and Ted Greene, and have played and recorded with wonderful musicians around the world. (e.g. The Zen Blues Quartet.) I am primarily known for a more modern approach to Blues guitar and also some solo guitar in the style of Ted Greene. Ted was my main teacher for almost 25 years.
I am currently developing this educational series “Guitar Outside the Box”, as a non-traditional approach to exploring the instrument.
I am also developing a series of lectures and workshops for Universities and Music and Audio technology programs, and will post the descriptions and availability here: Lectures and workshops Link
I was recently awarded the BCAA 2017 Pathways to Jazz Foundation Grant to record a 2nd Ted Greene Tribute CD and the Lineup includes Local Colorado singers Robert Johnson and Hazel Miller, Denver Guitarist Mitch Chmara, Los Angeles Session singer Jeff paris, Internationally renowned Jazz Violin Virtuoso Christian Howes, Internationally renowned Jazz Guitarist Andreas Oberg. “This project is funded in part by the Pathways To Jazz grant, a donor advised fund of the Boulder County Arts Alliance”.
For more information please explore the site and feel free to get back to me with any questions that you might have! The idea here is to create a communal music educational opportunity that evolves and changes as we all collaborate and grow as a community of guitar players.
Thanks for visiting!
