Since 2018 Johannes Möller is the Ambassador of ZhengAn Guitar in China, which is the largest investment of its kind in guitar history. ZhengAn is a city in Guizhou which have made guitar manufacturing and guitar culture its main priority. The city has encouraged hundreds of guitar manufacturing companies to set up their production there. Currently about five million guitars are produced there every year. At present a concert hall dedicated to guitar as well as a guitar museum and a 99 meter guitar tower is under construction.
In 2010 Johannes was awarded the first prize in the Concert Artist Competition Guitar Foundation of America (GFA), considered by many to be the most prestigious classical guitar competition in the world. Today Johannes performs close to a hundred concerts per year and has a large following in China, Europe, Australia, North & South America. An engraving of his name can be found on on the walls of the Concertgebouw concert hall in Amsterdam (as a recognition of excellence given at the Vriendenkransconcours).
Acquiring his skills in both performance and composition at an early age and in a free setting provided Johannes with the highly characterised and idiosyncratic voice that many listeners around the world have come to admire. It seems clear that it was an instinctive urge to create that drove this course, and with these beginnings Johannes was set to become an icon of 21st century music-making. Johannes has earned a Bachelor of Music with Honors from the Royal College of Music in London and he has received two Master degrees from the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague and from the Amsterdam Conservatory.
