About Jonah

Hello all. I have been teaching for about 10 years now. I have degrees from two universities, one for jazz performance and one for classical performance. I have played in multiple bands throughout my life ranging in styles from punk rock all the way to straight ahead jazz. If you choose me for lessons, we will work on developing your musical vocabulary, learning to read music, hand exercises, chordal structures, scales, tablature and so much more. I have a love for music like none other and a passion to share that with my students. *** Lesson Details *** A typical lesson with me would start with some warm-up exercises. I then like to move on to any book material you may have had for that week. We will also work on chords and scales to use accordingly with any songs you're ...

Excellent Instructor for All Ages

Our 10 year old son is really enjoying his weekly at-home guitar lessons with Jonah. Jonah has been careful to thoroughly cover the basics before moving on to more in-depth instruction. This patient teaching method has proved invaluable to keeping our son engaged and giving him confidence to move forward. Jonah approaches each lesson with an easy-going and relaxed demeanor balanced with a serious expectation of learning each lesson's stated goals and objectives. Our son is looking forward to a successful year learning the guitar and we would highly recommend Jonah to anyone seeking guitar instruction.

Bryan B. Shelton, CT

About Bryan

I have enjoyed music as long as I can remember! Whether listening, playing, writing, or teaching…I find great pleasure in the creative outlet that music provides. At the age of five I began studying classical piano, in elementary school I studied trumpet, in middle school I picked up the guitar and bass, and in high school these experiences collided as I began to write and arrange for various ensembles. Playing in a rock band all through high school and college, I've had opportunity to record two albums and to tour regionally in the North East. Receiving a Bachelor of Music in Music Education at Gordon College in Wenham, MA, I studied classical guitar with David Patterson for four years while I gained much experience in various areas of classroom education (band, choir, theory, ...

Thank you for teaching me how to play the guitar. I learned how to play a song and it was really fun because I had no experience at all.

Thank you so much for teaching me different things on the guitar. I loved learning that Greenday song in just one lesson. I enjoyed playing with you. It was really fun and a worth while experience for me.

Thank you for teaching me how to play the guitar. It is a great skill that I now have and will cherish for the rest of my life. I have many great memories at your studio. All the laughs and the great jams and good times. I'm no "Mel Bay" but I can read music which is an extremely useful skill you taught me. I play in a guitar club at school and I am one of the best because I know my scales, keys and the right way to use them. I will never stop playing because you showed me how much fun it is. I am so grateful for that. Stay in touch. Overall just THANK YOU!

1st Lesson

My 1st lesson with Jason was very relaxed & professional. I learned more in 45 minutes than the last 5 months on my own in regards to reading music, rhythm, timing and playing the notes on the staff. He is very patient and knowledgeable. His diversity in music provides an understanding of where you are at and where you want to go with music. I look forward to my next lesson with Jason.

Jason knows the classical guitar.

I have been teaching myself for the past 1 1/2 year using an online course. Although it is a beginner course Jason has chosen to use the content of that course. He has been able to take the music and increase the skill level to an intermediate level. He has also introduce me to the modern guitar music that this course would not address. Lessons were so helpful I initially increased my sessions from 30 min. up to 45 and then up to the full hour.
George E. Stony Brook, NY

About George

I had my first piano lessons when I was in the 1st grade just over 20 years ago. When I picked up the guitar a few years later I found it to be extremely difficult and even frustrating -- but I was hooked by the challenge and I soon became determined to master this wonderful instrument. I began teaching because I wanted to share what I had learned. And, as I believe teachers should 'practice what they preach,' I continue to study and hone my own skills every day. I am completing an advanced degree at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. While I have had many years of intensive training in classical music, I remain versatile in everything from Rock, Heavy Metal, Jazz, Big Band, Folk Music and beyond. I tend to focus on helping students realize they can learn any song ...
