Jon N. was born and raised in Mexico City and is proudly an American citizen. He has been performing since the age of three, on several instruments, studying music since fourteen, and still takes lessons to this day. What's not to love?
He is proud to teach at all levels, including many professional musicians with master’s degrees, adult beginners, and of course, kids of all ages between 8 and 75.
They are encouraged to select the music they want to learn, so we have worked on classical music and original compositions, which I also coach, jazz, blues, pop, rock, the Great American Songbook, reggae, seven different kinds of Jewish music, and other ethnic music from all over the globe.
Frequently the younger students will request a tune I've never heard, but I magically transform the MP3 into a handwritten score at the student's level. Example, one of my adult beginners wanted to play the big symphonic poem Scheherazade, and I wrote out the main tunes for easy piano.
I have played for the President of The United States of America, for the President of Mexico, for the heir to Lou Malnati's Pizza (for which I had to learn Greek music since he married a lovely Greek girl) and for many thousands of other unfamous yet happy people like you and me.
Up to eleven different subject in music alone at one college.

He's always very positive and encourages me to be positive too. He's also very responsive to my needs, helping me to concentrate and giving me beautiful music that I really enjoy and can work with.
I heartily recommend Jon. He's a very capable teacher, and a kind, considerate person.

Also his piano skills are on point, and he does a good job of explaining how to read a score and the mechanics of playing the piano.
Beyond piano know-how, though, I would argue that it is Jon Novi’s zest for teaching that makes me glad I’m taking lessons with him. You won’t regret it.
