The key to great singing is enthusiasm, focus and some hard work. I have worked with students of all ages and my goal is to get you singing the right way!
As a professional singer and graduate of The Juilliard School and working Opera singer, I have had the great fortune of training and performing with some of the best in the business.
With performances at Carnegie Hall and with major orchestras such as the Toronto, Vancouver and Seattle Symphonies and around the world, I feel this gives me a unique perspective on the challenges and successes that are possible with a fun, yet focused and healthy technique based approach. Whether a beginners, intermediate or advanced singers looking to hone your skills in operatic, musical theatre and even pop voice.
My goal is a well rounded, relaxed yet supported vocal tone with a focus on breath, and feeling rather than by ear. This ensures that no matter what the repertoire, the situation, or the acoustic of the room, you are always focused on healthy, articulate and projected singing.

I found Jonathan to be great! I felt very comfortable with him, very confident regarding him; it was just an overall great lesson and I am eagerly awaiting my next lesson. I am looking forward to with Jonathan in the future; for anyone wondering about his teaching, he was great!
Always a pleasure
Jonathan is a great teacher! His method focuses a lot on body awareness--from the core torso muscles used for breath support, all the way to the muscles in the face where resonance occurs.
Jonathan is very intuitive about my individual needs, helping me find my voice through specific corrections, rather than just providing general instruction. He is also a warm and welcoming host and quick to offer a cup of hot tea!
Highly recommend, especially for students looking for greater body awareness while singing and hoping to get more out of their breath support.
Jonathan is not only a great teacher, but a motivator, a coach and a facilitator. I publish my own 8 track album with his guidance and drive and couldn't have done it without him...go ahead.....try him!
