Jonah is one of the best music teachers I've ever had! He breaks down hard music topics and answers questions with patience. He is very knowledgeable about the guitar. Musicians of any level will learn a lot from him and will grow as musicians.

I've been taking lessons with Jonah for 6 years now (4th-10th grade) and the experience has been amazing! With Jonah's help, I have learned so much about the guitar, both in technical aspects and in simply "jamming." Jonah is always very patient, kind, encouraging, and his passion for music very clearly shows in his teaching. Every lesson I take is very enjoyable, and I always come out of the lessons feeling like I have made good progress on whatever it was we were working on that week. Whether you wish to learn about complex music theory and lead guitar (like I am currently doing), or just want to learn how to play a few songs, Jonah is a perfect choice as a teacher. Additionally, Jonah is very communicative and flexible with timing. Whenever I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson for whatever reason, Jonah responds to my messages quickly and is almost always able to find another day that week for our lesson to take place on. 5 stars, fantastic teacher, I highly recommend Jonah!

Johah is very patient and flexible. He identifies and is willing to work on techniques, such as barre chords, in a way that finally helps me to stop the buzzing! I am looking forward to working with him.

Super nice guy, patient. I would've given it a 5 but we spent most of our time trying to figure out my hardware. Totally not his fault, I'm hoping he does some research about the hardware before or next lesson. I would recommend Tony for sure.

Great start for our 7 yo grandson. Tony immediately appealed to his musical interests, and prepared him to learn his first song next lesson.

If Ableton seems a little confusing at first, don't worry! It's really one of the best DAWs to work with out there, and I'm happy to help you get started.

We can talk about all the basic components, audio and midi effects, sampling, workflow in both session and arrangement view, and programming live shows as well as creative and exciting methods to improve your beats/productions/podcasts etc.

Ableton can do it all.

How do you make awesome music in Ableton?

Start with the music that excites you. Listen, analyze and notice all the sounds you're hearing.

Then, you make a soundalike. In the process, we analyze everything you hear, and learn all the tricks of recording, sound design, producing and mixing.

Then, you try making your own music, using the sounds you know and new sounds you discover on the fly.

One project at a time, you figure out how music works, master the software, and become capable of making just about any sound you want to hear.

I've been making music with Ableton for a while- I made my first record as a songwriter almost entirely in Ableton 9. I learned everything by trial and error and a lot of YouTube watching, so I can help you avoid the initial stumbles I made and set you up for success with the most powerful software on the market for music creation.

I won't be lecturing you- we'll be working together, collaborating on music you can be proud of. Shoot me a message ...

About Ethan

My musical life started at the piano when I was four. I've spent the last five years helping students understand the sounds that speak to them and bring them into their own music-making. I spent my early years playing piano, then picked up the saxophone, which took me to Berklee College of Music,

Ethan is truly an amazing saxophone teacher! I started learning the saxophone on my own but had been plateauing for months. Thanks to Ethan, I learned very useful tips - ranging from music theory to practical advises - and I can now feel myself progressing again. What’s impressed me the most with Ethan are his passion for the music, his dedication to transmitting his love for the saxophone and his desire to find the find the best teaching approach for each of his students.
Matthew
The way I view music and life in general has shifted in the best way possible. Stoked to have been apart of Ethan's lessons and recommend anyone interested in music to do the same. The things I never even begun to understand about music are now commonplace and serve to better my understanding of music as a whole.
J-P
Ethan has always shone as the most impressive of all my mentors in my eyes. Even since I started working with him four years ago, he has always put in the most effort for each of his students, and still continues to outdo himself. A great quality of his that proves more difficult to find out there is his raw passion and skill for leaving no bit of knowledge behind in sharing with his students. Whether it’s advanced music theory skills or pro-level composition techniques, he never fails to demonstrate his talent for spreading knowledge and helping his students learn. Ethan is an astounding instructor, mentor, and friend, and I hope other students can experience the same learning opportunities that I have.
