It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!
Holly
With his flexibility and willingness to accommodate us my daughter learned a lot from him. He was a wonderful teacher and a great person to do business with.

Whether you want to play bass guitar on stage like a rock star or get funky like Bootsy Collins, I got you covered. I have over 10 years performing experience and 4 years of teaching students in various genres/styles of music. What makes my lesson style unique is that I ensure all of my students regardless of age or playing level are performance ready. You ask what is "performance ready?" This means as a student you will not only learn how to play your instrument well, but in addition will be taught how to operate your instrument, amps, and effect pedals. Your knowledge of sound and tone quality is essential to your success as musician. In turn, this allows you to properly convey your message as an artist to your audience. When it come to lessons, I customize my lesson plans according to the students goals. My goal as an instructor is to ensure that my students leave each lesson feeling accomplished, motivated, and that they've had fun in the process.

"So glad to have Jonathan as my teacher

I am a busy professional in my 50s that wanted to learn how to play the electric bass. After searching the web for in home lessons I found Jonathan Greenberg.
Jonathan is an absolute professional with the ability to quickly connect with a student at their level. I have already learned an amazing amount in 4 weeks and have confidence that Jonathan will have me playing at a high level in a very short time period.
He gives me "homework" and he follows up to determine if I am staying with it.
A great mannerism and teaching style make Jonathan a teacher well worth asking for.
