Murray is friendly and accessible. He is able to combine his skill with an obvious love of teaching. His approach seems to emphasize technical skill, fun, and a bit of boldness on the student's part. I appreciate his ability to represent the many potentials of drumming, not just as an art but also as a modality of expression and healing that can meet the needs of the moment for a person or a community.

We had fun and are looking forward to our second lesson. Thank you,

Murray was an AWESOME teacher! Learning musical instrument via zoom sounds like it may be difficult or not as productive as in person but Murray proved that wrong. Each class was fun and interactive and came away feeling more confident than the last.

Dave is excellent with my 5 year old daughter. Great approach combining music theory and technical training all while keeping the attention of my child. Could not be any happier with our experience:)

We had great experience with David. One of my kids learning drums and the second one - piano. Both of them don’t have any experience before and they do great progress during their learning for 3-4 months - bi weekly zoom lessons. David teach them and help us to select the right instruments and other relevant materials
Highly recommended

Johnathan is a teacher in the spirit of a Jedi master. I was looking for someone who could go deep into how to play an instrument properly without making it drudgery and that is exactly what I found. At the start, he asked what I wanted to get out of lessons and where I wanted to take playing the violin. Each lesson has been tailored to add another piece to that foundation.

He really keeps my 6 yr old daughter interested in playing and that is the master skill.
Brian S.
Jonathan is doing a great job training me to elevate my playing from intermediate to advanced. He pays very close attention to detail and has a lot of knowledge in music theory. I look forward to taking more lessons with Jonathan.

"As Jim states on his bio, he teaches from age 8 and up. I'm one of his "up" students who's been playing guitar for a few years, but never took time to learn theory because I thought it was too confusing or difficult to learn. After being stuck in a rut for the past 30 years, I finally realized that I could be a guitar player, instead of just playing guitar, by understanding WHY I'm playing what I playing. I planned to take a few lessons to see how it would go. That was 4 months ago. Now when I pick up my guitar, I have a plan and am excited to learn more each week. Jim's approach to teaching theory makes it clear for anyone of any age or expertise. If you're young and want to learn the right way, Jim will teach you the right way. For us older folks, I found out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks... I highly recommend Jimmy!"

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge. Many people assume that learning theory is difficult (it isn’t) that it has no practical purpose (it does), or even that it will actively make them worse at making music (quite the opposite). I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine.
