Guitar · In studio

Mr. Jonathan French is a great teacher. He's very skilled and knowledgeable in music and guitar, and has assisted me a great deal with songs for shows and performances. He's a patient instructor and doesn't teach just for a pay; he is very passionate in what he does and truly cares about his students' growth as musicians.

I really can't say enough about Jonathan and his ability to teach guitar. As someone who was a little beyond the beginner stage, trapped in "cowboy chord" land, Jonathan has been extremely patient with me, detailed, friendly, and an easy instructor to learn from. He makes learning guitar fun, and his knowledge of music theory and practical application is impressive. He has helped me grow as a guitarist and a musician in general, so you're looking for an instructor who fits this description, Jonathan is your guy!
