Jonathan M.

Argyle, TX

About Jonathan

Music is what I breathe every day of my life! I grew up in Oklahoma in an average-sized city. Starting in 1st grade I pursued taking private piano lessons. Unlike most kids, I continued classical piano study throughout middle school and high school. In 2nd grade, the year after starting piano lessons, I pursued taking private trumpet lessons with the trumpet professor at the university in my city. Around age 9 I started private drum-set lessons, and age 14 picked up the acoustic guitar later followed by electric guitar. I just wanted to play ALL the instruments. After my 2nd year of high school, I decided to pursue independent study with an online accredited school, mainly for the reason of greater personal music study through the university. My trumpet professor asked if I’d like to ...

Music Theory
Exceptional teacher

I am an older non-musician in a household full of multi-talented musicians. I finally decided that I needed to at least receive some education in music performance and music theory just to keep up with my family. Jonathan has been the perfect instuctor for that! Not only has he explained the concepts of music theory in a logical and easy to understand way - he has made it challenging and exciting! I have begun trumpet lessons and I am progressing far faster than I thought possible. What a great instructor! I no longer consider myself a "non-musician."

Trumpet
Outstanding

I'm a trumpet beginner. I've tried taking lessons before but really went nowhere and it was a horrible experience. Jonathan has been very patient as he has moved me quickly and effectively through the basics of trumpet to where I now have a sense of pride in what I can do! I almost didn't give him a try but his experience and friendly picture convinced me to try it again. I'm so glad I did! I can't recommend this instructor more highly!

Great experience as a beginner

Jonathan is doing a great job teaching me from no knowledge at all. He's given me great exercises to increase my playing ability and is very patient when I don't understand or can't figure out how to play the notes.

Jordan D.

Grapevine, TX

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from UTA with a bachelors degree in Music-Media. In my degree, I excelled particularly in music theory and did several honors projects involving specific theories and composition styles. Music theory is also a fundamental understanding that I use on a daily basis for my work in composing, arranging, playing, leading, etc.

About Jordan

12 years ago, I picked up a guitar and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am the worship leader for Living Life Church, a private guitar instructor, a freelance producer, film-composer, performing musician and, of course, instructor! I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I was the lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter for multiple independent rock bands, the most notable being an indie psychedelic band called Tod The Fox. I have led worship for Grace Fellowship UMC, Brazos Pointe Church, Bear Creek Community Church, The Cornerstone College Ministry at UTA, the BSM at UTA, Christ Is King Church, and FUMC Allen in varying capacities. At UTA, I studied Jazz and Classical guitar under

Acoustic Guitar · Online
Verified Student
First off, I am a complete beginner. I have never played an acoustic guitar and only started to playing the bass the end of last year. I have tried on my own for about a month and decided I need some professional help. I just needed an instructor who could guide me and answer my constant questions rather than having to look up instructions online. Jordan is worth the time and money just having someone who can easily answer my questions or instruct me on what I am doing wrong. After the first month, I can see a lot of improvement from when I first started the online lessons. Jordan is very patient and knows his stuff. These types of lessons and also Jordan's enthusiasm motivates me to keep going when normally I would not try as hard when learning on my own. I am very happy with my instructor and online lessons. I would recommend Jordan for those who are interested in playing guitar.

My son has been taking lessons from Jordan for 9 months. It is amazing how much he has improved during this time due to Jordan's influence. Jordan is extremely talented and works very well with children and young adults. We look forward to continuing learning under Jordan's direction.

I met Michael at a gig and was blown away by all the original material he wrote and played on guitar. In a couple of years of lessons I learned more technique and and music theory than I did after 20 years on my own. Michael is a world class player/composer and a very patient teacher. You can't find any better.

Michael isn't just a great teacher and amazing guitarist, but he's a crazy good composer as well, which is a skill that can be difficult to find among many music instructors these days. If you're looking to get started from scratch or are a more experienced guitarist looking to break into that next level of playing, Michael would be a great choice as he's the real deal for sure. Great guy too!
