About Jonathan
Hi, I'm Jonathan; I’m a trumpeter, composer and music educator from New York City. I have been working as a trumpeter, composer, arranger, and studio musician for almost 2 decades and have been teaching full-time for the past 7, which includes nearly 3 at the University level.

Most of the subjects I teach are music related, in which I have nearly 10 years of Conservatory training, a Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, 2.5 years of Doctoral work, as well as over 17 years experience performing, recording, and competing on an international level. However, my interests, practices, and skillsets do extend beyond sound and visual art, and in the realm of philosophy, science, physics and spirituality.

As an artist and composer, I’ve been recognized internationally, by way of several organizations: 1st place in the International Trumpet Gu
ild Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition, finalist in the Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition, recipient of the ASCAP Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composer Award, selected-participant at the Banff International Summer Intensive Program in Jazz and Creative Music and the School of Improvisational Music Summer Intensive Program, recipient of 5 Semi-Finalist selections and 1 finalist/honorable-mention selection in the International Songwriting Competition.

As an educator, I have taught all-level/all-age group music playing and appreciation courses for several New York-based organizations: The Afro-Latin Jazz Academy, The Gramercy Brass Orchestra of New York, New York Ensemble Classes, the Lyceum Kennedy International School, Jubilee Enrichment Programs, and The New York Jazz Academy. Currently, I am finishing 6 semesters of service as a Graduate Part-Time Instructor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where I teach multiple ensembles as well as a 100+ student History of Jazz lecture class.

I have also been practicing various forms of meditation practices and Yoga practices for the past 5 years. My influences span from Astral Projection to Reiki, to Vipassana Meditation, to Visualization Techniques, and much more. I believe and live by the idea that creativity is an energy that flows through us, and one's creative abilities can be improved and expanded, through the emotional body, which is influenced by one's perceptions. Throughout my training in music and the arts, I have realized that creative flow and love for what one is and does can be applied to anything in life.

Because of my 7+ years experience as a professional artist living in New York City, my students receive both guidance in discovering their own voice and comfort within their desired field of practice, and also practical approaches to retain and utilize their training and pre-ordained skill sets, with self-application and diligence. Through study with me, my students enable themselves to swiftly make progress and move toward a life of renewed purpose and fulfilment. Through specific assignments, exercises, and practices my students foster a real relationship with their instruments, and themselves, thus unlocking their creative minds, for usage in all aspects of their lives.

I teach out of a my home apartment studio on the upper east side, complete with weighted 88-key digital piano, Bose high quality speakers, recording equipment, as well as musical media, and tablature spanning many musical genres, cultures and time periods. I also am equipped with a spacious floor space for Yoga, Pilates, Weight Lifting, Meditation, and more. Additionally, I am able to travel to any location within the five boroughs for an additional travel fee (TBD based on location).

While I specialize in the following broad areas of musical study, my specialties are not limited to: General Music, Composition, Arranging, Ear Training, Music History (includes classical, jazz, and world musics), Music Theory, Sight Singing, and Songwriting. I also specialize in the following instruments: Trumpet, flugelhorn, and Piano/Keyboards.

I look forward to helping you realize your potential! Let's get started...

I would highly recommend Jonathan as a music teacher. Jonathan is absolutely passionate about music, which is evident by his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is very patient with my five year old and encourages her to get her very best effort. Jonathan customizes the music and lessons for my daughter’s skill level while at the same time provides challenges to keep the learning process interesting. In a short period of time, my daughter's keyboard playing abilities have dramatically increased. I am very grateful to Jonathan for making learning fun for my daughter, who always looks forward to her lessons!

About Jonathan "JC"
Hello! Bonjour!
The way I teach is simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.

My name is Jonathan. I am a 34 year old French-American man living and working in Minneapolis Minnesota. I have +15 years of expertise as a professional photographer. I will be your teacher today.

I am a husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 16 and 14.

Photography is my full-time job. I also practice traditional Sunyoga meditation as a teacher, and acupressure therapy. I have participated in healing cancer patients and all kinds of diseases in 4 different countries (USA, France, Serbia, India).

In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of a Non Profit Organization called Sunyoga France, French branch of the main NPO from India called UNIVERSAL
PEACE CENTRE, for scientific and spiritual research, agriculture, clothing, taking care of orphans and elderly people, with a health center and an education center.

Our 7 humanitarian programs focus on creating a Self-Dependent and Sustainable Global Family Home University. As we speak we have people from 14 different countries working together towards that goal.

I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It will be called SUNYOGA AMERICA.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING? Everybody wants the best. I believe QUALITY is the most important. I also believe each person is UNIQUE and should be treated in a unique way with unique lessons. To be clear I am not into industrial stuff. I am into a personalized and genuine approach which in my experience saves a lot of time and is way more efficient.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares some knowledge during class. Depending on the teacher's talent, passion, and love for his work, the students will learn something. Then only we have exams.

Hopefully Wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you.

As a photographer my motto is
ENLIGHTEN YOUR EVENT, BRING LIFE TO YOUR STORY
I hope the choice of words reflects my philosophy

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

Hello, my name is Patrick Harrington, aka Harringtoon, I work professionally as a live caricaturist in both traditional and digital formats including animated! In my studio work, I have a wide range of styles and projects and expertise in traditional and digital applications. I do not subscribe to a one fits all methodology for any students but rather consider each individual's talents and goals.
I like to help students find their own unique styles and voices – And above all have fun while doing it!

About Rita
I have been teaching and painting a long, loooong time (since 1983 actually)! I am a professional mural artist and painter as well and found that my painting improved many years after art school graduation. I was frustrated back then and painting seemed so complicated! Is that you? I figured out with my own research the freedom and fun in painting. Your painting will improve week to week as we work together to apply nice color combinations, explore values, shapes, edges and so on. Are you interested in portraits, still lifes, landscapes, animals? Let's start with smaller painting sketches to learn the basics of color, shape and design. Then we will take it from there. You can and will succeed in producing paintings you desire!

Hi there! My name is Leigh and I take photos and videos for a living! I also teach yoga to kids and adults! Sometimes I get to combine my loves, and take photos and videos during all sorts of yoga classes. I've worked with kids many times, and am currently teaching a music video production class to a group of 3rd-5th graders. I've taught photography and photo editing classes before, at a summer camp that I used to work at in New York State.

About Sasha
Hello! My name is Sasha and I look forward to being your art teacher. I studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with a degree in painting, but I would consider myself more of a draftsman who loves science and architecture (this does not mean that I do not love or teach painting!)

In my experience with art, I will insist that art is not to be made simply for art's sake. Art is a vehicle and a very diverse one at that. Art should be made for fun, but it can also be used for exploration, emotional well-being, and deepened understanding of our world and ourselves.

I work with every student at their level of skill and interest. If you are not sure where to start, I am happy to create lesson plans for you.

I encourage any questions you may have! I look forward to working with you!
