About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn how to open up and knuckle down at the same time! I am currently a full-time YouTube Creator, sidelining in cover bands and a solo act. Teaching is a big part of what I do on the internet so I see my work as a private teacher as 'research' for the lessons I create. Although I'm firmly grounded in a classical music training, there's nothing you can ask about that I won't try to figure out. My favorite thing about teaching is using unexpected questions to develop new ideas that I then ...

I took guitar lessons from Jon a few months ago.
the lessons were the best investment I ever made.
they were transformative.
they took me to the next level.
and there is just no comparison to the level I was at previously.
I grew in super fantastic ways.
lessons with Jon helped me to become a better guitarist and singer.
but, also a better musician. I learned a ton about how to be the best musician that I can be from him.
the guitar techniques that I wanted to learn from him, are challenging.
at the beginning, some of it was impossible.
he encouraged me. told me I could do it.
showed me a ton of super cool techniques.
told me stuff about how to use my mental powers (stuff like about HOW we learn).
he knows a lot about learning.
and he's super generous in teaching it.
I highly recommend for everyone to take lessons from Jon.

The thing I really like about Jon's teaching is that he is able to take a complex idea or technique and teach it in its most basic and simplest form. He taught me a lot about guitar improvisation and broke it down into fundamental licks or core phrases that could be used and applied to many different areas of the guitar. In addition, he's a super down to earth dude and anyone who is interested in the guitar or music in general should consider taking lessons from him.
