I have been a professional touring and session guitarist for over 10 years, and a professional educator for 15. I have a degree in performance/composition from the Berklee College of Music, and throughout my teaching career I have placed students in several accredited collegiate music programs including USC and Cal Arts. I am a full time member of the band Lukas Graham and have toured internationally and performed to crowds upwards of 20,000 people. My career as a session musician across my credit list has yielded over 600,000,000 streams on Spotify alone.
When you study with me I spend the required time to get to know your current level of skill, the goals you’d like to achieve on the instrument, the style(s) you’d like to focus on, and most importantly the way in which you learn and retain information most effectively as an individual so that I can design lessons that cater to you as specifically as possible. I believe in introducing students to material in a fashion that doesn’t overwhelm the student or stifle his or her passion for the instrument so as not to discourage them from practicing. My goal is to connect the student as directly as possible from where they are now to where they want to be and beyond!

About Jonathan S.

Hello There!

My name is Jon Sosin and I am offering my services as a private guitar teacher. I am an accomplished session and live performance musician with over 15 years of experience in the professional music business. Since my graduation from the Berklee College of Music (2008), I have had the good fortune to work with some of the top producers, engineers and writers in the Los Angeles area and have recorded and toured nationally and internationally with platinum selling artists.
My session work has contributed to a combined 600,000,000+ streams on Spotify as well as platinum-selling singles for major artists, some that even reached #1 on Billboard: Alessia Cara’s “Rooting For You” and “October”, Andy Grammer's "Magazines or Novels", Melissa Etheridge's "This is M.E.", the Meghan Trainor "Spotify Sessions", Rachel Platten's "Wildfire" and others. I have performed on domestic major media platforms including “Late Night with Seth Meyers”, “James Corden’s Late Late Show”, “Ellen”, “Good Morning America” and international media platforms including “This Morning” and “BBC Radio One Live Lounge” and a litany of others. I am also a highly accomplished educator who has placed students at both Cal Arts and USC, and my students have even been featured on national Guitar Center promotional videos and "Good Day Chicago".

I took some acoustic lessons with Jon at various times over the last few years and he really helped me with my touch and feel while playing rhythm Then on electric he was FANTASTIC in showing me triads up and down the neck and helping build me knowledge of theory on the guitar. Would highly recommend Jon as a patient and kind/fun loving instructor!
