I had a fantastic time expanding my musical understanding and abilities playing/studying the accordion under Jonathan! He always has a great attitude, and I found him to be very knowledgeable. From my lessons I gained, greater confidence in playing, higher understanding of music, and an enjoyable passion in maintaining my accordion practice. He's a great teacher, and the lessons I had are always with me! Highly recommended for anyone interested in taking accordion lessons.
