Start your Day with Exercise!

"Opus 7" is comprised of 12 Daily Warm-up Exercises in 12 keys. The studies are in various styles from jazz to bluegrass to classical and contain shifting techniques for all fingers.


I composed them in the spirit of my teacher, and Berklee mentor, Bill Leavitt. They are riff with "curve balls"!


I play them every day. 


Study Guitar with John Carlini

Have a question? Drop John an email.

Get back into that guitar (or 5-string banjo) fingerboard adventure!


Here's what a returning student had to say about his recent progress.


"After a hiatus of more than three years, I was finally able to resume monthly lessons with John Carlini. So psyched; it's almost too cool. Already overcome (overwhelmed?) with new information and ideas."

Don't live in NJ? No worries, just sign up for sessions!
