John Miners guitar

    About John Miner     

John learned the ukulele from his father as a child  in 1958, then he started playing banjo in 1969 changing to (mainly) acoustic guitar in 1970.

In 1974 he opened The North Shore Piano and Music Centre in Crows Nest (Sydney) where he learned
the finer points of repairing pianos & stringed instruments.  

The North Shore Piano and Music Centre also had a large music school where John taught Guitar and Banjo.

He sold the business in 1980 & moved to Cairns in North Queensland where he continued to deal in pianos, guitars and banjos.

As a solo performer John loves to play ragtime, jazz, blues & country music although he is competant in many other styles of music.

He has performed in many bands from Folk-Dixeland to Jazz and Country Rock.  

In Oct 2015 John returned to his home in Brisbane after spending 4 years travelling around Australia in
his Winnebago Motorhome playing music and collecting interesting stringed instruments.  

Now working from home in Springwood in Brisbane, John continues to teach Ukulele & Guitar
