I teach students on an individual level according to what they want to accomplish. Each lesson is custom tailored to fit their objective. Mastering the instrument and
understanding music theory are two important subjects that I offer. Along with that, a student can focus on any musical style from classical to jazz plus other important aspects like composing, reading and recording music.

I am willing to share my professional experience with any student who wants to become a player!

My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons.

I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice.

I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothing is too difficult once we understand how to do it!

Max is an awesome teacher! He is very knowledgeable and patient which was exactly what my son needed. He was also very accommodating and accessible for times when we needed to reschedule. My son’s performance increased dramatically only after one summer of weekly lessons. Can’t say enough good things about Max.

I feel fortunate to have Bill as my teacher. Bill is an outstanding player and teacher. I have been able to progress far faster with lessons with Bill than I could on my own.

When Bill was my band director over a decade ago, he was the best music teacher I'd had at that point. After reconnecting with him and having him work with me on my techniques more recently as an adult player, that opinion still stands very strongly. He has a wonderful way of phrasing things that help you just "get it," and has expert advice from everything from fundamentals and helping you achieve your best sound, to more advanced techniques such as double and triple tonguing.

Keats is an excellent and professional teacher. He was always punctual and extremely pleasant. As an adult beginner, I felt very encouraged and challenged while learning cello from Keats. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone who wants a quality learning experience.

I have been teaching for over 15 years and am passionate about helping my students unlock their full potential and helping them to discover their true voice! Students can expect to make progress in their very first lesson and continue to improve from week to week. I have worked with various students from those who are tone-deaf to professionals.

"I've taken lessons with several teachers and I've never learned anything like this before." "I can't believe the improvement I've made after a lesson or two!" "I was so nervous before starting lessons because I didn't know what to expect but I'm having so much fun!" These are comments I often hear from my new students.
