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.

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.

I absolutely love teaching... nothing brings me more pleasure than to see the progress of my students. I like to start someone off learning solos and standard bass repertoire while also reinforcing their playing with some great technique, so they can get those flashy chops! no matter what level they’re at! Especially if they have auditions coming up on their radar.. I will help as much as I can so that we can succeed. Please call or text my phone whenever because I am 100% committed. I will also always be demonstrating with my own instrument so a student can see and also hear how to achieve the sound they desire.

Whether you're a first day student or a seasoned player, I've probably taught someone just like you before. I especially love teaching theory and fretboard logic, but I can help you learn whatever you're looking to take on.

With every student, I create a specific path for you that gives you what you're looking to learn (aka what got you excited about picking up the guitar in the first place) along with the essentials to help make your journey as smooth as possible. If there isn't quality tab readily available, I'm down to transcribe the tune for you and I guarantee you'll laugh and enjoy yourself (at no extra charge of course).

About Dave

I've been playing the guitar for 25 years now and teaching for nearly two decades. In 2006, I received his BA in Jazz performance from U-Mass Amherst and since then I've performed anywhere from local bars and cafes, in pits for musical theater, as a show band musician for Carnival Cruise Lines and

Had a great lesson with Dave! Fast-paced and challenging, I felt like he really made good use of our time!
Ken Chavez
Dave is the best instructor I could have hoped for. As an older beginner, I was not sure how much I could pick up but I have made good progress in the past year with his lessons. Lots of fun, look forward to learning more riffs and songs!
Samantha
My 11 year old has had weekly guitar lessons from Dave for two years now.
Her knowledge and confidence in playing the guitar, has greatly improved. Dave gets all the credit for that.
He works well with her, is communicative, and is as flexible as he can be, even last minute.
I have, and will continue to recommend Dave to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons

Phillip Hsieh
Great instructor, very patient and knowledgable, Perfect for beginning players. Very chill, enjoyable experience.
John Bonacci
I had no clue how to play a bass guitar. I was fortunate thru the college he was teaching at to be honored to have Scott teach me at my beginner level, the basics of bass guitar. His patience with me was much appreciated as again, this was new to me and at the time being 69 years old, I wasn’t a quick learner. After several sessions, I was able to play basic cords, study the notes on the frets thru his lesson plan. I was sad that Scott left the college for NYC, but was very happy for him as he wanted to pursue his masters degree. Thanks to his patience and excellent teaching skills, I was able to continue lessons with another instructor and not embarrass myself as I had minute skills that helped me become a little more than a beginner. I am still going at it and loving every second but it was Scott’s patience and teaching skills that kept the fire lit to continue pursuing my love of the bass guitar. I can’t thank Scott enough and I wish him well with his goal of a master’s degree.
Sal
Scott is a great teacher and an even better friend. His background in music makes him unlike any other instructor. I’d highly recommend him to anyone, at any skill level.

"There is no finer teacher anywhere than Greg!
Having never played any instrument before , Greg took away any worries or anxiety I might have had. His patience and vast expertise with stringed instruments is truly amazing. Students learn at their own pace not the instructors. Greg has students making actual music very early in the process. Being able to actually play something right away is highly motivating and more importantly Fun !
Greg’s personality and his amazing talent makes it very easy to engage in the process . Having taken Bass Guitar lessons for several years with Greg , I can’t imagine what it might have been like with another teacher. Greg is an amazing instructor !
You won’t be disappointed!"

"I've been going to Eric weekly for over a year and he's been great. I've always wanted to play an instrument but never took the plunge and I'm very happy I did. He's super patient with me, and takes the time to make sure I can play real songs. We spent a lot of time at the beginning getting me to play normal songs instead of diving into theory first which I really appreciated. I could see myself starting to play. We added heavy doses of theory into the class throughout the year and now I understand how music is made. I'm a slow learner and need to practice more on my own but now I can actually play!"

Gave him some basic things to start the juices of music flowing. 2nd lesson was amazing because Kyle started applying what he taught my son as well as jamming with drum beats and guitar to give my son a real feel to playing and learning to apply what he was taught."

What is an Acoustic Bass Guitar? A Look at the Instrument 

If you’ve ever seen or heard an MTV Unplugged concert, you’ve probably seen and heard an acoustic bass guitar. This is a hollow body instrument that is the size of an acoustic guitar, but has the sound of a bass. In the 1980s and 1990s, rock bands would perform their electric guitar songs with acoustic guitars, and bassists could be heard or seen playing these instruments that are not too common in the world of music.  But if they made it all the way to the MTV screens for decades, why h …
