Classical Guitar · In studio

Highly recommended, very happy we found Jonathan! My daughter took to him right away, and learned a lot from him right from the start. The material he gave her to work on will be challenging for her, but not overwhelming, and she's excited to learn and progress.

A great instructor!

My son had started with Jonathan in August and he has learned so many songs he loves and wants to learn! My son connects with Jonathan really well and I find my son practicing and doing what Jonathan has told him to do. Jonathan is great!
