My son was 6 years old when he started piano with Jon. Jon has encouraged him, motivated him and taught him everything he knows. My son really enjoys piano and has learned so much from Jon in a few short months. I highly recommend him as a piano teacher.
David-James L.
Jonathan was prepared and worked well with our son. We look forward to our future lessons.
Phil K.
This 5 star review is long overdue. My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Jonathan for 2+ years, and we couldn’t be happier. Jonathan is an extremely knowledgeable musician, and his approach is a great mix of instruction, patience, and fun. It’s been an overwhelmingly positive experience.

Students will be shown proper technique, as a bass player your sense of rhythm and feel is very important so a lot of focus of understanding, reading and writing rhythms. Being able to navigate through chord progressions is also key so an understanding of theory and its applications on the neck will receieve a lot of focus. For new comers, a method book is highly suggested to work through.

Art is the best guitar instructor I’ve had. Each lesson is centered around where I currently am in the learning process and we’ll discuss theory as much as application.
Kevin
Expert experience and equally as wonderful personality. Patient and flexible with my learning level and schedule. Very educated with music history too.

Peter has not only honed my daughter's previous skills, but introduced techniques and music theory that was completely new to her. Peter has sought out music that will challenge and interest my daughter specifically. We've been very pleased.
Brian
Peter is an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher; it has been a privilege studying the piano and cello with him for the past 2 months. In that brief time, I have completed 16 of the 17 pieces in the first Suzuki book for cello! I have also enjoyed the piano exercises and repertoire he has assigned, which are technical but melodious. He has a great understanding of theory and technique; he is very personable and encouraging; and he was flexible and accommodating about the times and modes (in person and online) for my lessons. I recommend him wholeheartedly to other adult beginners like me and am grateful to be under his tutelage.

Peter is exceptional. His instruction is simple, straightforward and progressive

"I started going to bass lessons with Mr. Paul in December 2019 without no experience with playing the bass. It's now March 2020, and I can now say I learned how play scales and some bass lines now. Mr. Paul is a great teacher and very patience with his students. Now I CANT STOPING COMING TO PRACTICE. THIS HAS REALLY BEEN A GREAT EXPERIENCE. THANKS BRO....."

"Rob is great!

Rob is great. His teaching style is informal and comfortable. He is very laid back. Rob is very patient with beginning students and can really coax their talent from them. I've seen him with more experienced students too, and their sessions seemed to be almost a jam session.
Rob has taught my son since he decided to take up the Bass and so we have known Rob for many years and have become friends. We've seen him perform in a lot of venues. He can sound like Paul McCartney or John Lennon as a Beatle or Geddy Lee in Rush. I'm sure he can surprise me with his stylistic range. Even as a bassist, which usually are very staid, he leads the group with his vocals.
He can act too, and make us laugh with just the right timing.
As a teacher, you can't do better than Rob."

"I took bass lessons with Jason during the summer. Jason provided a thorough assessment of my skills and challenged me to improve with each lesson. He was always well-prepared when the next lesson commenced. I could also always count on Jason to patiently answer any questions I had. He is also versatile in his teachings (knowledgeable about music theory, too) and will do his best to make certain your musical interests are addressed. Jason’s calm demeanor and patience were also appreciated.Jason did a great job of making certain I was satisfied with my lesson and what I was learning. Kudos to Jason for always giving his best when helping a student reach his/her music goals."
