A gifted arranger, John was the winner of the first and second prize at the First Annual Seconda Prattica International Guitar Arranging Competition with arrangements of piano works by Debussy and Durey for solo guitar. In addition to solo guitar settings, John's work in voice and guitar arrangements have put him in high demand.

He also regularly performs his own arrangements, which are available through John's exclusive publisher, Productions d'Oz.
