Guitar lessons with Jon.

  My 9 year-old daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Jon for over a year and she really enjoys it! He is just the right mix of encouraging, funny and get down to business. He will talk about songwriting and how that can start at any age, break into song in the middle of a lesson to get a point across or play along to get kids used to playing with other musicians. He also doesn’t mind putting them in the “hot seat” to remind them of what they need to remember. He has a gentle and effective style which really seems to work. I would definitely recommend Jon as a music teacher to an adult or child looking to learn an instrument.

Guitar lessons with Jon.

  I have been taking music lessons from Jon for over 3 years now. I’m continuing to learn playing guitar. I have learned to read music and play chords and notes which translate into music. He makes it fun and enjoyable to come to lessons. I’ve even had the opportunity to play chords on a recorded song. I highly recommend Jon, his students range from young kids to senior citizens like me. I’m thankful to continue to grow and learn music from the best music teacher.

Guitar Music Theory lessons with Jon.

  I've been taking guitar lessons from Jon for over 2 years. He not only teaches chords and notes, he stresses heavily on "music mechanics and "music theory". I have learned a great deal about music with a teacher who takes music very seriously. I was lucky to have found such an instructor. Hope to continue to learn. I also recommend Jon to anyone, young or senior.

Guitar lessons with Jon.

  I have the pleasure of taking guitar lessons with Jon Quinn, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. Jon's expertise and passion for music are truly inspiring. His teaching style is patient, encouraging, and tailored to each student's needs. Jon has an impressive depth of knowledge when it comes to various guitar styles and techniques. Whether I wanted to learn classical fingerpicking or dive into blues improvisation, he always had valuable insights and practical exercises to help me progress. What sets Jon apart as a teacher is his ability to break down complex concepts into digestible parts. He has a knack for explaining intricate theory or challenging techniques in a way that makes them accessible and understandable. His clear explanations and demonstrations ensured that I never felt overwhelmed or discouraged during the learning process. Beyond his technical expertise, Jon's enthusiasm for music is infectious. He consistently fosters a supportive and creative learning environment. He encouraged me to explore my own musical interests and helped me develop my unique style as a guitarist. Not only is Jon a fantastic teacher, but he's also a great mentor and role model. He genuinely cares about his students' progress and goes above and beyond to provide valuable resources, recommend songs to practice, and offer constructive feedback. He helped me set goals and supported me every step of the way, making the learning journey enjoyable and fulfilling. I highly recommend Jon Quinn as a guitar teacher. Whether you're a beginner starting your musical journey or an experienced player looking to refine your skills, Jon's expertise, passion, and teaching abilities make him an exceptional choice. I'm grateful for the knowledge and confidence he has instilled in me as a guitarist.

Full Drum Kit lessons with Tom.

  My youngest son has been taking drum lessons with Tom for about 2 years now and I can’t say enough about how much progress he has made with the instrument and how much his joy of playing it has grown. The level of experience and detail that Tom brings to lessons is immeasurable and even when he is correcting technique or form he’s doing it with a smile and positivity. He has made learning the drums an excellent experience for my son, Tom is absolutely the best.

lessons with Jon (Guitar Lessons).

  Jon’s unique approach to guitar lessons with my oldest son have doubled his obsession with the instrument. It’s not simply a lesson in technique, scales, and chords, it’s a lesson in production, feel, music history, work ethic and those are just the few subjects I’ve heard them relate to the guitar at the end of sessions. I wish every music teacher took an approach like Jon, I would recommend him to anyone without question.

Guitar lessons with Jon Q.

  I've been with Jon for almost two years doing guitar lessons. Jon teaches in such a way that is easy and understandable for all ages. His lessons purely revolve around the student. Unlike many other instructors, he will follow what the student wants to learn. He will base his lessons on the student's aspirations and musical tastes. He relays his knowledge of music theory and techniques to help advance any student with their goals. Along with being a great instructor for theory and technique, he will also try and push students to create new music and be creative. He will even record music in his studio for the student to share with their friends and family. Overall, Jon's lessons are some of the best that you can find in Eastern Connecticut.

Learning Piano with Kris.

  My son takes piano lessons with Kris. She is always upbeat, patient, and fun. At thirteen, I would expect times where he wouldn't feel like going to his lesson, but that is never the case. Kris moves along at a good pace keeping his interest alive and is always so encouraging of his efforts. We are grateful to have her as his teacher. AND When we get a piano, we will be requesting Jon's expertise for tuning it!! Thank you both.

Double bass / cello Lessons with Jon.

  My boys have been consistently taking lessons with Jon for years. He has helped them develop a love and understanding of not only their guitars but also music itself. They now play multiple instruments including guitar, bass guitar, cello and double bass. He helps them prepare for school concerts and is available for extra lessons when they need them. We are very lucky that we started lessons with Jon because he is a central part of their success.

Guitar Lessons with Jon.

  I have been taking guitar lessons with Jon for about 8 months now. Jon is patient, makes the lessons enjoyable, and allows his students to learn at their own pace. Not everyone learns the same way, and his willingness to alter his teaching methods to fit my needs is a tremendous help and makes learning fun. His passion and enthusiasm for music keeps me engaged and looking forward to the next lesson. With such a busy schedule I don’t always get time to practice at home as much as I would like, but Jon is willing to go over material as many times as I need each week. There is no pressure to perform at a certain level with Jon, the environment is very relaxed. I highly recommend lessons with him! Hannah Cloutier

Guitar Lessons with Jon.

  I have been seeing Jon Quinn for about a year now. Jon makes sure you know what you are doing whenever you’re playing and encourages you to make your own music and your own sound. The instrument you are “learning” with him is simply a medium for you to express your music knowledge that jon has taught you. He is always engaged and personalizes every lesson for the student and is very welcoming. If you are looking to really learn music theory, make your own songs, and challenge yourself to be your best, then I highly recommend giving him a call. Jon is by far the best music teacher I’ve ever had. 10/10 - Jason Jacaruso

Piano Lessons With Kris.

  I have been taking piano lessons with Kris for approximately 2 years now. I started not knowing how to read sheet music let alone which keys were what. Kris has been super patient with me and now I’m playing popular sounds on my own with help at my weekly lessons. I enjoy the time I get to spend with her and have created a special friendship with her. Highly recommended going to see her. From someone over 50 years old, it’s never too late to learn a musical instrument. - Brenda Foltz

Bass Lessons with Jon.

  I started taking bass guitar lessons at Quinn Music and could not be happier with the results. I am the son of a singer in a classic rock cover band and always dreamed of someday being able to get up on stage to play a few songs with my father’s band. Jon was incredibly supportive of this and was able to use his vast experience in performing and teaching music to stick to the core principles of his program all while keeping my goal in mind. Over the course of a few months not only am I able to play several songs with my father but i developed an interest in music theory that I never knew I had. I can’t thank Jon enough for this and each week I find myself looking forward to my upcoming lesson. - Eric Ratelle

5 Star Piano Lessons.

  My son has been taking piano lessons for years with Jon's sister, Kris. She knows how to teach the little ones as well as older kids and adults. I loved how she started my son off with simple songs instead of chords. It can be hard for a young boy to stay engaged, but he was and is. We love her! - Lisa Lavado

  Jon is so good with kids. Since my ten year old began taking lessons with Jon, he has begun practicing more on his own initiative and also seems to be enjoying his guitar more.

He's a fantastic teacher

  Jon teaches my 8 yr old son guitar . He's a fantastic teacher . I would highly recommend him for someone thinking about getting their children into music . Also his sister who is at the same location, teachers my other child piano . She's great too . They both have lots of students have been very accommodating to our scheduling needs .

My Music Lessons

  Jon; I can't thank you enough for the patience you have in teaching me the guitar. As a 60 year old it was my dream to learn how to play the guitar and you have provided me with the instruction, time, and patience I needed. I enjoy my lessons and look forward to many more. Brian Smith

ALL the teachers are just amazing at their crafts and working with the kids!

  My son Bryce plays 2 instruments, Drums & Piano. He absolutely loves it!! Can't say enough brilliant things about both of his teachers...Tommy on Drums & Miss Kris with Piano! Tommy is very patient with the kids as Drums can be a difficult instrument to learn for the younger kids syncing the beats and rhythm. Bryce took Drums for 2 years prior at diff places and they were awful! He never learned any songs, just played notes from a book. But he absolutely loves coming to lessons every week here as Tommy let's Bryce listen with headphones and play whatever songs he wants to learn on drums! He mixes it up, makes it fun for my son. He's learned more in 10 months here than he's ever had in 2 years. I give Tom two thumbs up as a teacher! And Miss Kris! What a genuine person! Really enjoys working with kids of any age. It is Bryce's first year taking piano and it's such a joy to see him play every week. Piano came naturally to him, but every week he continues to amaze me! Proud mom! Miss Kris let's him mix it up and play whatever style of music he likes. While he gravitated towards classical pieces, he plays a variety of styles...popular, favorites, hit it's never boring! Some kids tune out or lose interest playing same stuff week after week. He even does duets with Miss Kris on songs he's really good at. So, I can't say how happy we both are to have found this little gem of a music studio. I've seen Bryce make so much progress and ALL the teachers are just amazing at their crafts and working with the kids!

Definitely recommend Quinn Music.

  My daughter and I both take piano lessons with Kris. She is excellent with my seven year old. Very patient and makes the lesson enjoyable for her. As for myself she is great at challenging me but not to the point where its too difficult. She allows me to go at my own pace while slowly taking me out of my comfort zone. I love how she allows me to put my own twist on certain music and think outside the box. She is very accomodating and flexible with your schedule and very affordable. It is also nice that her brother gives guitar and drum lessons in case my daughter wants to branch out. He also tunes at a very reasonable rate. Definitely recommend quinn music. Its a great experience!

Wonderful Teacher

  Jon Quinn has been my guitar teacher since I started about 3 months ago and I have nothing but positive things to say. He has made learning so easy and fun, I look foward to lessons each week. He is an overall great person and teacher and I'd reccomend him to anyone!.

I Wish Quinn Music Would Relocate to Los Angeles!

  Jon Quinn has been producing my music for the past couple years and it has been an amazing collaboration. My music and film colleagues here in LA are blown away by the production and recording quality Jon has brought to my music. It rivals the best major label releases. If only I could get my songwriting and performance chops to that level! He has also added his musician talent to the project so I may have to pull him away from the studio when we go on tour! Check out his work on my project:

My bucket List

 I am a 65 year old woman, taking guitar lessons was on my "bucket list". I thought I couldn't do it at this time in my life but within a short period of time I was learning not only how to play guitar but to also how read and understand music! My Grandson also takes lessons from Jon and looks forward to each lesson every week. Jon is the best teacher i know and both my grandchild say, He makes learning fun! Looking for quality music lessons? Contact Jon. Maggie Grundwalski.

My guitars are playing fantastically! Thanks Jon

Jon restrung two of my guitars recently; one new, and one very old one that had been sitting at a friends house for a year or two. On the newer one, I couldn't get the action the way I wanted it, and it wasn't staying in tune very well and the older one had a neck that was practically unplayable because of how out of line it was. Jon made all of the repairs himself, restrung and cleaned my guitars, and even helped me with some advice on making changes on my new guitar. (which I will be going to him for) My guitars are playing better and easier than they ever had. Thanks Jon!

Very happy with my guitar repairs

Did I mention Jon does precise repair work on instruments? I own multiple guitars and Jon has overhauled everyone much to my satisfaction. From neck fret and bridge work to intonation , pickups and pots. If your pride and joy is ailing he will have her up and around in no time.

My relationship with Jon and his wonderful family goes way back

Just a few words about Inphaze studio in Griswold Connecticut. My name is Mark Benson of After The Fall. Our band has recorded 4 cd's, the last, "Knowledge" was recorded at Inphaze. The album received 15 out of 16 stars in Progression magazine, an international quarterly covering the world's progressive music scene. Jon Quinn's state-of-the-art equipment, parlayed with his professional expertise was a major factor. Jon is insightful, patient, and focuses on bringing out the very best in an artist. The peaceful, relaxed country setting is quite conducive to artistic creation and performance. Jon continues to infuse himself in the artist's project beyond the call of duty. I am currently recording a solo album at Inphaze and I look forward to every session. Working with Jon is an honor. He is also a competent multi-instrumentalist and has been known to contribute to the finished product. For the young musicians just starting out, a real perk is Jon's ability to conceptualize and coordinate your project, ensuring results beyond what you've imagined. The final outcome is always a pleasant surprise.My relationship with Jon and his wonderful family goes way back to when a young boy's dreams ran rampant. As the harsh reality of the music business was realized, Jon's studio is still a safe island to return to. After The Fall will be in for another go in September. For the pure love of music and bringing out the best in a song and an artist, Inphaze will be my choice till the notes and words are done. Best always to you Jon.

Hands on lessons

I've been with Jon for a few months now and the lessons are rigorous and a tad bit difficult but very rewarding, and Jon takes care to go over any issue you have. Overall I feel like these courses are well worth the money and not only have I learned a lot, I've also had lots of fun.

By Mokri July 14, 2015 at 08:35 PM

Excellent teacher

My 9 year old son Aaron started with Jon Quinn just after New Years after receiving an acoustic guitar for Christmas. Aaron and Jon made an immediate connection. Im truly surprised in Aaron's progress in just 2.5 months. Jon is a very patient and enthusiastic teacher. I can tell that he loves teaching music. We drive some distance to get to the lesson, but it's well worth seeing my son always smiling during his lessons. I can't recommend Jon highly enough!

By AaronP March 31, 2015 at 04:14 PM

We love the piano teacher!

I've been taking my son to Kris for piano lessons for years. We started when he was 7, he is 11 now and loves going. He doesn't always want to practice at home, but he ALWAYS wants to go to his lesson.

By Creative Obsession Handmade Jewelry January 20, 2015 at 05:54 AM

Best thing we did!

The best thing we've done for our son (6 years old) is enroll him in Piano lessons with Kris Quinn. She is amazing, and has taught him so much in just a few months. Wish we didn't wait so long! She is wonderful with children, and a pleasure to be around. She has personally instilled a life-long passion for the piano in our son. He can't wait for his weekly lessons! I can't say enough great things about her. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone, and especially for children. Thank you!! - Jen & Chris :)

Five Stars!!

If there is but one person who personifies what it is to be a great guitar/music teacher it would be Jon. His enthusiasm, knowledge and patience makes learning guitar a pleasure. If you are on the fence about learning the guitar, don't be. The guitar is an amazing instrument and Jon is a wonderful teacher...Thank you Jon,...Jim

By Jamess224 November 22, 2014 at 09:38 AM

One of a kind

Jon is a VERY,VERY TALENTED musician and teacher.
He expects one to do their best but lets you progress at your own pace.
His lessons are informative and fun.Your time there is up before you know it!!!!!!
I would recommend Jon for all levels of experience from the beginner to the pro . I feel Jon's lessons would benefit anyone who studies with him!!
He is also a really nice guy!!!!!

KroppDusters CD Project @ In Phaze Audio

I have known Jon and the Quinn clan since the late 1970's while I owned a music store and school in Norwich. So, here we are years later and I'm back with Jon recording The KroppDusters at In Phaze!

I have been a studio musician in NYC and was a producer at Columbia Records (Pete Seeger) in 1970. I have spent much of my professional career in world class studios with great engineers and musicians.

Jon and In Phaze are among the best of the best!!
I am very impressed with the progress our project with Jon is making for our first KroppDuster CD. The studio is very well stocked with state of the art hardware and software. The tracks we are laying down have excellent room ambience and are high quality. Jon's choice of mics and his guidance with his high production values is paying off. My experience as a studio musician in NYC and as a producer for Columbia Records (Pete Seeger) leaves me very impressed with Jon's attention to detail and quality. The standard for several high production CD's with Northern Lights are being met with the same high quality studio situation. first met Jon in the late 1970's and we have made it full circle! Jon great job-highly recommended!

I am delighted with the results-we are getting great sounds in a relaxed yet professional environment. 5 Stars to Jon and In Phaze!!-Mike Kropp.

By MikeKropp June 10, 2014 at 09:11 AM

More than an instructor.

I have been with Jon for a number of years now and for the last year or so have transitioned from the guitar to the bass guitar. Jon has helped me make the switch as smoothly as it can be and being a great bass player himself continues to show me different styles, techniques, and the little nuances involved with playing. Not only is Jon a great teacher but he has helped me with the selection of amps, guitars, electronics and helped me set them up. We have done road trips to look at these items and he does this all on his own time. He encouraged me to pursue playing with friends and it is now to the point that I am jamming with two different groups. Jon has become more than an instructor to me, I consider him my friend. I will continue to go to Jon for lessons and the jamming we do and I would recommend him to anyone that would like to get started with playing or to express their musical talents."

By DaveDrobiak May 26, 2014 at 07:14 PM

Great teacher , nice studio, candy and lava lamps.

Jon has been teaching my son (10) for a couple months now and i believe he is moving along at a much faster pace, is having more fun, and having an overall better experience than where he was taking lessons before. He has a good way of challenging my son, and I cant wait to see how he plays after a few more months.

By Insertwittynamehere April 23, 2014 at 08:46 PM

Awesome Guitar Teacher

My daughter has been learning the electric guitar from Jon for a little over a year now, my daughter is 7 years old and is doing well. Jon has been very patient with her in learning the guitar. He makes learning fun at a young age, jokes with the kids but yet they still leave with something new they learned that week. My daughter always laughs about something during their lesson time. My daughters favorate thing to do on the guitar is to play cords I believe it is because Jon makes a game out of it and challenges her to do more each time. I would highly recommend contacting Jon Quinn if you or your children are interested in learning the guitar, you will learn at your pace with no pressure added.

Phaze Audio

Our son had taken lessons in Norwich for about a year and although they were very nice, we had little results. When we went to Phaze Audio it made SUCH a difference! Jon Quinn is the most patient teacher, talks to them on their level but at the same time he expects hard work. He can tell when someone doesn't do their "homework" and I love that. He is serious about teaching your child the art of playing the guitar but at the same time finds way to make it fun and engage them. My son has a lot of respect for his teacher and looks forward to lessons. I have the utmost confidence in his ability. I am amazed at how far my son has come since attending his lessons. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Best Guitar Teacher Ever!! :)

When I began to take guitar lessons with Jon, I was only starting the six grade. Coming to him with no knowledge about guitar playing, music theory, or even what a scale was, I was rather anxious about starting. However, Jon was completely reassuring and allowed me to develop the talent at a steady pace. Now, soon to start my senior year in high school, I have come to appreciate all that he has done for me. Unlike other teachers (who seem to stick to the book)¸he takes the extra step to form the lessons around the individual. I have loved going to the lessons, ready to show my family what I learned. Now, I am able to play a wide range of songs, learned new techniques, developed an understanding of music theory, as well as acquired a passion for the guitar. Guitar is a part of my life now and will always be. This is all because of Jon’s wonderful teaching and his ability to adapt his lessons to the individual. I absolutely recommend him for anyone who wants to learn from the BEST! :)

Guitar Lessons w/ Jon

I have been taking weekly guitar lessons with Jon for about 10 months now. As a guy in my 20s, I came to him with no prior experience in playing music, reading music, and with only basic knowledge in music theory. Jon's patience and teaching style is a major part of why I think its so easy to succeed with him. Personally, I feel that each week when I leave his studio I have noticed at least some improvement in some area of playing (chords, notes, major scales, etc), which is something I never expected before I started playing. Plus, he has a great taste in music. He is very accommodating to personal and work schedules as well. I strongly recommend Jon to anyone.

Barefoot Truth started at In Phaze Audio

Almost 10 years ago our band Barefoot Truth began our professional recording/touring career at In Phaze with Jon. As young enthusiastic musicians, Jon showed us the ropes of the recording process while helping us create and our own sound. Our recording experience with Jon was the foundation of what would soon become a full-time career as musicians. Jon creates a warm, welcoming, and creative studio environment at In Phaze. He has he ability to bring out the very best of an artist's creative abilities, while knowing exactly how and when to provide direction. In addition to Jon's skills as a producer, engineer, and musician, his state-of-the-art recording studio at In Phaze Audio features all of the highest quality recording equipment that the industry has to offer today. There is a reason why Jon Quinn has such a fabulous reputation throughout Southern New England.

Great Guitar Teacher

Jon has been my guitar teacher for the last 5 years. I started in 4th grade and I am now a freshman in high school. I started without any knowledge on guitar at all, I am now capable of performing many styles and genres of music. Most teachers tend to stick with the lesson book and not deviate from its plan, Jon however uses both the book and incorporates other important ideas and factors into a lesson. Jon is a great teacher in guitar and music itself. After five years i am still learning a wealth of information each lesson.

By CAndrews September 04, 2012 at 02:56 PM

Great Lessons and Studio Work!

Jon is an excellent guitar teacher and works to the style and interests that you have which make the lessons very fun and interesting to the students. I have taken lessons from him for four years and feel like I have learned a lot and wouldn't have rather had any other teacher. My band also went into his studio and recorded seven songs with him. He does a fantastic job as a producer! He makes spot on suggestions to help the songs move in a direction that will improve the output greatly. Very helpful, an absolute pleasure to work with, and great product in the end. Wouldn't recommend anyone else for local recording or lessons!

By JulesParenteau August 31, 2012 at 09:51 PM

Jon is a great teacher!

I am a newbie to Jon's studio, I have been going for 4 months now and feel I have learned a lot from Jon. He is very patient, and can play the guitar very well! I have learned to read my music the right way! There is something to be said about Jon he doesn't move on unless he knows you understand. I am very grateful for that. I get a lot out of my lessons. Something I wasn't getting in the past. Jon is a great teacher and his passion for guitar music shows. I hope that one day I can play as well as him.

By CandyDugas August 05, 2012 at 03:04 PM

Has tought my son to love music!

My son started taking guitar lessons from Jon last fall when he was eight. Jon has been very patient with him, teaching him all the aspects of reading and music techniques. He absolutely loves his guitar. He loves to play and has even created a "studio" in the basement for himself. I never have to bug him to practice, it is something he loves to do, and I attribute it partly to his wonderful teacher. He has taught my son to love music! A far cry from piano lessons when I was a kid.....!!

By Roxanne July 08, 2011 at 07:11 PM

No Better !!!!!!

My sons started lessons at the end of 2010. Our youngest being taught bass by Jon and our oldest drums by Jon's brother Bill. The patience and caring these guys show toward my sons inspired me to take guitar lessons with Jon. I've played guitar for years but always played by ear, Jon is slowly teaching me to read music. If you are looking for some awesome music teachers for your kids or even yourself, I encourage you to save time and call the BEST 1st.

In Phaze Audio

My son started taking lessons with Jon this past fall. Jon is patient with my son's attention span (or lack of), indulging him on his tangents, and then bringing his focus back to the lesson. He is always encouraging to him and motivates him to work hard. It is a pleasure to work with him. His lessons are fresh and inspiring.
My son thinks he's a great teacher and he looks forward to emails from Jon with music pieces to practice with. 
Switching our lessons to Jon Quinn was the best decision we made.

By Donna Guarneri May 26, 2011 at 01:31 AM

Great Teacher!

Jon has been a great music teacher for our teenage son. They have worked on all aspects of music; music theory, basic chord progressions, song writing, vocals, etc. My son says, "anything you want to learn he will teach you." Can't get any better than that! Also, my son has a band and they have worked with Jon in his impressive recording studio to record their music.

My son is only 5 and just started guitar lessons. We were worried that he was too young to start, but Jon is such a great teacher and is so patient with him. Lucas is already learning so much and loves going to his lesson each week!

Jon's studio

Working with Jon has been great. I've recorded with him on two Northern Lights projects, as well as the Parallel String Band. Not only is he a great engineer, with the temperment needed for the long and demanding hours in the studio, but he also has the musical knowledge and musical chops to furthrer support and enhance his work at the board. He truly makes the recording experience a pleasure. Not to mention, the studio is located in a great setting. Which again, adds to the whole experience..5 stars

Recording Studio

I have been recording original music at In Phaze Audio for several years now and have enjoyed every minute of it. Jon makes it very easy to feel comfortable there and provides alot of valuable input towards the project whether it be as a musician or producer. His experience and hard work are sure to make anyone's recordings whether it be a demo or a full production cd a great sounding result. I highly reccomend Jon & his studio to anyone at any level.

Awesome Guitar Teacher

Jon has given my nine year old daughter guitar lessons, as well as my twenty year old son. He is as patient and kind as he is knowledgeable about guitar. My daughter feels very comfortable with him and my son thinks he is "cool" and very talented. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher!

"It Was You" recording sessions

As I recorded my first album, I called on the experience and facilities of Jon Quinn at InPhaze Audio. His studio was comfortable and well equipped to handle the project from start to finish. I spent a year working with Jon who went the extra mile through recording and mixing a well as taking on the role of producer for several tracks.
In the end I have an album of material that my fans still listen to and enjoy today. The scenic drive to InPhaze Audio is a trip worth taking to complete any size recording project with quality and affordability.

In Phaze Audio

Anyone who wants to really see how rewarding expressing themselves with guitar can be, needs to hook - up with Jon. He brings you along with a very patient and knowledgeable pace. Rock on Jon!

Jon is a patient, brilliant engineer and producer

I have worked with Jon on two albums in his recording studio, and can't say enough about how patient and hard working he is. He is a brilliant musician, who knows how to bring a band's sound to a whole new level. The albums I did with Jon have garnered international press and aclaim. I highly recommend any serious recording artist work with Jon.

Guitar lessons with Jon

Both of our children have recieved guitar lessons with Jon for the last 2 yrs. We have been very happy with thier progress. He works with our boys in a way that they look forward to each weeks lesson. They have worked on composing thier own music and he works hard to teach music that our children enjoy. He works hard to accomodate our schedule when it comes to sports. I can't say strongly enough that we are very happy with Jon.

Jon is a great guy and really knows his profession

My son is a student of Jon's. Jon is a really nice guy and he is very accommodating. Seth has excelled in his guitar playing with Jon's instruction. Jon has also done some recording with my daughter Chelsea, who is pursuing a BFA in musical theater. Its amazing to see him at work!, and it was nice to see how well they worked together to refine the recording. He is really good at getting the best out of the performer. I highly recommend him!

Are there more than 5 stars??

Great guy. Great with kids. We have been with Jon for 3+ years and my 11-year-old son really enjoys every lesson. I absolutely LOVE listening to what he has learned - Jon is teaching him everything from reading music to composing his own songs. If you are considering lessons here, Just. Do. It.

In Phaze Audio

My 12 yr old daughter has been taking guitar lessons at In Phaze Audio for nearly a year. She is a quiet, shy person and did not mesh well with an instructor at a different facility. John creates a comfortable and positive atmoshpere that has allowed my daughter to really excel with her skills. There are a lot of instructors out there who are very good at playing guitar, what I love about In Phase Audio is that in addition to John's incredible playing skill, he has demonstrated a great depth of knowledge in music theory and a wonderful ability to pass that information along to students in a way that is fun and engaging. I would recommend In Phase Audio for those new to guitar as well as those who are experienced, but want to take it to the next level.

Awesome music instructor

I am a fifty year old male that decided to follow a dream and take guitar lessons. I consider myself lucky to have John Quinn as an instructor/teacher. John is not only teaching me how to play guitar but also how to read music and all the nuances that go with it. No matter your age I highly recommend John.
