Jonathan S.

Winchester, VA

About Jonathan

About

I am a Florida native, active doctoral student, teacher and practitioner. My career includes performing and recording as a guitarist and teaching subjects such as music or math. Grade-school academic strengths in mathematics represent my enthusiasm for the subject. The math equivalent in music can be considered music theory, which is another passion of mine. I hope to take these well-rounded characteristics to teach and influence others with what I have learned in my education and career thus far.

Education & Teaching Experience:

I am currently pursuing my Doctorate of Musical
Arts from Shenandoah University and hold a Masters of Music from the University of Akron and a Bachelor of Music from Stetson University (all degrees with a guitar performance emphasis). I also have a temporary teaching certificate for Music K-12 from the Florida Department of Education. I have taught in Florida as a preferred substitute for general music classes, K-12. In college, I have given study sessions for music theory levels ranging from 4-part writing to post-serialism.

Degrees:
Doctorate of Musical Arts: Guitar Performance; Shenandoah University, expected May 2017/2018
Master of Music: Guitar Performance; University of Akron, May 2014
Bachelor of Music: Guitar Performance; Stetson University, 2011

While giving lessons:
I ensure that every student receives fundamental foundation pertaining to the subject. While learning the basics, I advise that the student organizes their lessons and materials in a way that displays progress over time. With the proper knowledge, we can treat the heart of a subject with refinement in order to grasp it's purpose and reason---whether its music or math.

Why?
My students have grown with confidence through a sense of accomplishment. Success does not only affect a person's well-being but can also impact other dimensions of their lives.

My favorite thing about lessons with Donna is that she treats the voice as an instrument. The lessons are not just another method to increase your repertoire. We work on vocal exercises and activities that strengthen the voice. I definitely recommend Donna as a teacher.

Kristin has been so great for me. She is patient and kind, and she encourages me to stretch my learning and understanding. If her explanation of something does not sink into my brain, she explains another way. She is also a talented pianist herself and I love to hear her play.

David L.

Frederick, MD

About David

As a lover of music, my biggest joy is the bass. I have a unique approach to the instrument, which I convey through both my playing and my teaching. I consider the bass a vocal, melodic instrument, and in any genre I'm playing, I seek to approach the bass not as simply a supporting actor to the lead, as it is so often portrayed, but as a counter-melody, the left hand to the right hand, complimentary but equal. The general theme that informs my playing is harmony. I seek to create the most beautiful and musically pleasing counterpoint to the lead, whether I'™m accompanying a vocalist, a jazz co
mbo, a guitarist, or playing in the bass section of an orchestra.

Coming from a unique combination of genres, I am able to bring the complete spectrum of music into my playing and teaching. My experience with improvisation and learning by ear enables me to take a more intuitive and sensitive approach to classical notated music, and my experience with classical music gives me a complete understanding of the theory and harmony that crosses over into non-classical genres, so often neglected by students of popular music. My ultimate goal as a teacher is for my students to be complete, well-rounded musicians, able to approach any genre with a complete understanding of the depths of music informed by both sides of the musical world. I also play the guitar and drums, and am able to both accompany students while they play, as well as give perspective on what it means to lock in and harmonize while playing bass with a guitarist or a drummer.

My formal education is from Hood College in Frederick, MD, where I graduated magna cum laude and with departmental honors as a music major, where I studied classical double bass performance, music history & literature, and composition. While at Hood, I commuted to DC to study classical double bass with my private teacher Jeffrey Weisner of the National Symphony Orchestra and faculty member at the Peabody Conservatory.

I have a regular gigging schedule as a freelancer, playing in jazz combos, dixieland groups, rock bands, chamber orchestras and classical ensembles. Having grown up in a family of professional classical musicians, as well as studying rock and jazz privately, my musical experience is wide and varied. Groups that I regularly performs with include the Matt Hutchison band, based in Baltimore, the Kevin Lewis Jazz Quartet, and my own funk band, David L and the Funk Junkies.
