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!+ Read More
