We didn't play much guitar but Kevin was patient enough to walk through some beginner theory to gauge where my knowledge was and from there we built a plan and I'm already working on new ideas etc...looking forward the next one

Found Donny in my driveway taking cocaine waiting for my son and I to come back to the house. Absolutely horrifying. Do not work with this person. He was always on his phone as well during my son's lessons and would cut lessons short.

DO NOT WORK WITH HIM!

Bass guitar was one of those things I had a passion about for many years before I took it up. When I finally did, I explored the techniques of many of the great players like Victor Wooten and Jaco Pastorius. I have performed in several bands as the bassist, but I've most enjoyed studying it as a solo instrument while writing my own pieces and learning songs of great artists like Larry Graham and John Mayer.

I typically play a 6 string bass but I'm happy to teach any type of bass from a 4 to 11 string instrument. I love teaching improvisation and special right hand techniques, so whatever path you want to go down I bet I can help you.

About Jonathan
I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn how to open up and knuckle down at the same time!

I am currently a full-time YouTube Creator, sidelining in cover bands and a solo act. Teaching is a big part of what I do online so I see my work as a private teacher as 'research' for the lessons I create. Although I'm firmly grounded in a classical music training, there's nothing you can ask about that I won't try to figure out. My favorite thing about teaching is using unexpected questions to develop new ideas that I then integrate into my original compositions. Check out my intro to the B
lues Raga video if you want to hear a good story about what I mean.

Recently I've had several articles published by the TakeLessons Blog. Check out my most recent post here.

At age 71, my fist lesson with Steve was August 6, 2015. His instructional style, skillful listening, knowledge and passion for music inspired me to practice and practice and write and write. To those ends, Steve encouraged me to attend an Open Mic Night or two after 7 guitar lessons. Though I was shaking like a box of pills at my first OMN, I eventually overcame my fear and played and sang several blues tunes I'd written. My journey continues. Sometimes I feel like I'm six years old, yet I'm learning how to play better under Steve's guidance. His influence on me has been, and continues to be, profound. Steve's integrity is unimpeachable. I enthusiastically recommend Steve as a music teacher. Art Beane

Music is my first love. After taking music lessons in High School, I wanted to continue to persue my love for playing the Bass - so I started saving for music school. But just like the Pixar movie Up, life got in the way as my savings went to more pressings needs.

Then I met Jordan [my balloon]. Jordan made me realize that I can still get quality and affordable lessons from an experience performer.

After every lesson I would notice a difference in my performance [which I am currently still taking]. Not sure where my love for music will take me, but I am glad Jordan is there to guide me through.

So if you are looking for a talented, smart, and true profession, go with Jordan. You will definitely get more for your buck.

Thank you Jordan :)
