I have experience with children and adults of all ages. I've performed with many bands over the years (US and Europe) including Mavis Staples, Andrew Bird, Tim Booth, Mucca Pazza, Bobby Conn, The Detholz, and Paris Delane.

A talented musician and teacher, who is genuinely responsive to his students' needs.

My son took piano lessons from Jon at a time when he wanted to experiment with different types of musical expression. Jon was extremely responsive to his needs, and worked with him on everything from improvisation, to jazz licks to a Brahms ballade. Jon understands that teaching music is not a "one-size-fits-all" endeavor, and draws on his wide range of musical experience to tailor a program that's right for your child. He is an extremely talented musician and a dedicated, caring teacher.

Jon is superb

My stepson took drum lessons with Jon for at least three years. I was impressed with my kid's progress on his drum set. Jon is so passionate about music, and I could see my son really connect to Jon easily. Jon was very available to discuss schedule changes and is a very nice down to earth guy. I highly recommend him.

Amazing teacher and all around phenomenal artist!

I took lessons from Jon for over 8 years, twice a week, including Jazz/Blues piano, voice, theory, and even drums. Let me first say that Jon is an all-around amazing artist that can master many instrument or genre of music. Taking lessons with him was something I looked forward to every week. He was an expert in all things jazz and blues, and really explained the theory and techniques well. I learned so much from him over those years that I can never repay. Unfortunately, he moved away to Cali, and I have not yet found a replacement that even comes close. I highly recommend Jon for music lessons in any instrument.

About Donato

It's a common misconception people have that when they take music lessons, they will end up with an awkward teacher who spends more time showing off than teaching them anything. This is actually true, but that's where I stand out. In addition to being an excellent instructor with 10 years experience at professional music schools, I am relevant. I keep up with new music, so you are guaranteed to learn more songs than Stairway to Heaven. I play in local bands, music is my life, and I love teaching it to anyone with the desire to learn. *** Lesson Details *** While I teach guitar, drums, piano, and bass, from beginner to professional levels, and I have tons of experience in songwriting, recording, social media, Protools, Logic, and Garageband, guitar is my forté. I've been playing ...

Excellent teacher for all ages!

Not every talented musician can be a good teacher. Donato is both. He is a professional musician who has a deep understanding of his instrument, music theory and songwriting. He is also an encouraging teacher who listens and connects well with his students and makes learning fun--playing music should be!

I started taking acoustic guitar lessons with Donato just before I turned 40--it was something I always wanted to do. With no previous experience, I knew it would be a challenge, but he proved that you can teach an old dog new tricks! I told him I wanted to play music that I love and can sing along to, and that is what he taught me to do.

Donato always adapted to my ability level, personal goals and preferred style of music. His encouragement gave me the confidence to learn something new and even play in front of friends and family. Childhood piano teachers instilled a sense of perfectionism which inevitably led to feelings of failure. Conversely, Donato helped me find the fun in making music, playing through mistakes in stride and singing aloud with joy. What a gift!

I highly recommend Donato for students of any age and any level. He has the experience and talent to hone the skills of advanced students and the adaptability and patience to draw out the skills of beginning students, all the while sharing his passion and enjoyment of playing music.

Donato is a terrific guitar teacher!

I took lessons from Donato for about 3 years. He was a great guitar teacher - both electric and acoustic. Not only did he teach me the songs I wanted to learn, but he also taught me the fundamentals of guitar. He has an extensive knowledge of music theory and can easily communicate that to his students. Donato was always enthusiastic and supportive, and he made taking guitar lessons fun and interesting. He also plays drums, so sometimes he would accompany me on the drums while I played guitar, which was always cool. Any student, whether beginner or advanced would benefit from taking lessons from Donato.

terrific teacher!

Donato is a great teacher and a wonderfully talented and musical person. He's taught me bass and drums, and is knowledgeable about so many genres and styles of music, and adept at basically every instrument.

He has an amazing ear; he can listen to any piece of music and immediately identify and play the melody, harmony, and rhythms, no matter how complex. He is a terrific communicator and extremely patient and encouraging as a teacher.

He's also a fantastic singer/songwriter/performer -- you should take any opportunity to hear him live -- you will definitely be inspired. I recommend Donato wholeheartedly!

About Francisco

I was born in Argentina. I began playing bass when I was ten years old, while my younger brother began playing drums. I started taking bass classes, and also formed several bands as a bass player, although the drums had always been sounding in the back of my head. After listening to Tool’s Danny Carey and Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, at the age of 17, I realized the drums were my true love, and began studying the instrument. I continued playing bass in several bands, until I joined the band The Evenfall as a drummer, in 2009. At this time, my family was considering moving to the U.S, and that's when I got the chance to apply to the Berklee College of Music. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2012 with a degree in Drumset Performance. There I studied with the most respected drummers and ...

Drum · In studio
I took up drums 2 years ago in my early 40's. Francisco was my first drum teacher, and he patiently introduced me to the instrument, exposed me to many different musical concepts and traditions, and really increased my interest in music and drumming. He is an amazing player, and I learned much from watching him play in lessons and also live. Unfortunately he moved from Boston to CA, which was my loss.I reccommend him without reservation.

Drum · In studio
I took many lessons with Francisco after a period of relative inactivity from playing drums on a consistent basis. I had been playing for years, but had unfortunately become rusty and out of practice at the time. Francisco helped me build my chops back up, and introduced me to new unique concepts in phrasing, approaching grooves, technique, and much more. Francisco's down-to-earth and very friendly personality, combined with his obvious passion for drums and percussion, made every lesson an event I looked forward to. He gave me a lot to think about each lesson, providing me with great musical concepts that can be studied for life. Francisco isn't a teacher who only thrives teaching beginners. As a drummer for several years with lots of performing experience, he still managed to significantly help improve my playing and reignite my spark in drumming. Thanks, dude

My son is 4 years old and has only had two sessions with Eli however, he does a very good job of communicating with him on his level and keeping his focus. He also has given him practice exercises which seem to do the trick.

My son has taken lessons with Paul for over 5 years. Not only is Paul an accomplished musician, he's a great teacher. His teaching style is positive and supportive. He has modified my son's lessons through the years, as his goals and needs have changed. Paul has always been professional, reliable and enthusiastic. He genuinely seems to enjoy what he does, and as a bonus, Paul is also a really nice guy, who has had a positive influence on my teenage son's life.
