John Ericsson has been the Director of Operations at Valotta Studios since 2014, and as a private instructor he has been lucky enough to have worked with so many talented young guitarists and violinists. After studying classical and jazz guitar, John graduated with a Bachelor’s in Music Education from Immaculata University and Pi Kappa Lambda music honors. His experience ranges from nearly ten years of private guitar and violin instruction, collegiate-level music theory tutoring, and arranging for and directing choral and instrumental ensembles, including Immaculata’s premier a cappella group.

John brings to Valotta Studios an extensive passion for writing, recording, performing, and teaching all genres of music with a unique technical attention for detail. Whether its classical, jazz, or rock and roll, he is eager to jam and ready to teach!
