John Knudson began his life of music here in Utah as a young child. He obtained his Bachelor of Music degree at Utah State University. He then traveled to the east coast where he received his Master of Arts Music from George Mason University. John has spent more than 35 years performing. His portfolio includes performances in some of the nations biggest venues ( he has performed for the last 3 Presidents) and with world renowned artists. He has 30 years of teaching experience and has helped students from beginner to advanced discover the musical ability they possess. He has now returned to the place it all started to share the magic and beauty of the music world that he has discovered with those who desire to enrich their lives!


Our Mission

To bring the beauty and joy of music into the lives of all who have a desire for it. To enrich this area with the most universal language known. Our hope is that the music we share may bring peace, comfort, and hope to all who hear and feel it.

Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU...John did such a good job that when I showed it to my regular luthier after I returned home, he told me the repair was definitely solid and well done and should cause no further problems... I strongly recommend John Knudson for repairing any fine stringed instrument.
