As a high school band director, I know how to teach from students just beginning to advanced. Private Students of mine have gone on to perform in All-State Ensembles, Compete in Kiwanis Competitions, participate in local community ensembles, and much more.

As a musician, I am the winds division winner of the Ronald Sachs International Music Competition, serve on the Education Committee for the International Clarinet Association, present at conferences including the International Saxophone Symposium, International Duo Symposium, and much more.

Taking private lessons is the first step to many opportunities in music.

Fantastic instruction. Patient, clear, and ensured she was meeting my daughter where she is at. Significantly more productive class times compared with our last in person teacher.

I have been learning from Jonathan for the past two months. She is a very supportive and patient teacher. I was a complete beginner when I first started, but after one to two weeks, I can play easy tunes like Twinkle Twinkle. Whenever I have any questions regarding the violin, she can give me helpful solutions. When I have lessons with her, I can immediately know where I need to improve and gain a few extra tips on my playing.

I would highly recommend Jonathan to you (people who are browsing on Takelessons)!

I had my first lesson with Jonathan today. He is personable, informative, gave constructive feedback and encouraged me. I found his style of instruction helpful.
I’m looking forward to my next lesson with him.

In my first lesson Jonathan was able to give me suggestions, which I hadn't been taught in eight years of instruction, for improving my Saxophone playing. By the end of the lesson, I had already improved on the piece of music I was working on.

My daughter has had very good lessons with Luther. He is enthusiastic knowledgeable, and has great techniques. He understands kids and works with my daughter very well. She improves a whole lot and enjoys playing.
