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.
