John Shick

John R. Shick hails from Winfield, Il and has been playing guitar now for 20+ years and has taught for four; one of Johns best, a daughter of a friend was accepted at the School of Rock in Arlington Heights and shortly became first rhythm guitar player. John has since taught many students both young and old with one philosophy.
“Learn Songs, not Scales… If you’re not enjoying what you’re doing, you’re not likely to continue, and if you’re going to teach, you NEED to learn to be patient.” John’s life is still encompassed by music, currently he’s head crooner and rhythm player for a Rockabilly band in the suburbs called Wild Card Rumble, a Rockabilly / punk / rock band where’s he’s always learning new guitar techniques and different possible approaches to his teaching methods.
