Not all students are created equal and you need a teacher who has tons of experience to teach you on the level that you can understand and be passionate about. My lessons cater to you personally--they designed to push and motivate you in the fastest way possible, in line with what you want and need to learn about the Guitar. Learn from a true master!
About Jonathan M.

Hi, Jonathan here... but you can call me Johnny. And I'm a Guitar teacher specializing in blues and rock--My blues influence can be heard when I play jazz, soul and funk, so people have told me that I play so passionately. "the blues are the roots, the rest are the fruits" I am also a multi-instrumentalist. Piano was my first instrument before I learned how to play the guitar, and I believe this has helped me in my approach to understanding music. I believe having this broad perspective enables me to teach ANY student, and make them the best musician they can be.
