Bass Guitar · In studio

My 11yr son has been taking lessons with Jonathan for almost a year now and we could not be more happy with level of instruction that Jonathan provides.

Not only is he an amazing bass player but he's a great mentor to my son as well. Each lesson he finds a way to challenge my son without making him feel overwhelmed. He makes learning fun!
