About Jonathan H.

Covid vaccinated!! I started my musical education in a children'€™s choir at age 6. When I turned 8 years old, I began piano lessons. I started violin at 9 and trombone at 10. After studying numerous instruments I am now proficient on the piano, electric/acoustic bass, and guitar. Having completed my tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I went back to school as a music/audio production major, and plan to continue my music education until I earn at least a masters in performance and composition. I started my teaching career at Milestones in Music, a local studio, as an independent contractor, and was able to gain valuable experience, and through my membership in the National Association for Music Education(NAfME) I was able to fine tune my curriculum. I am a former student member of the Grammy U Recording Academy, and have had opportunities to work with, and learn from a lot of different musicians. (The Recording Academy is the organization that created the most prestigious award in music, the Grammy). I am the band leader at Montco Bible Fellowship. I have experience as an audio tech in the studio and for a live stage, and have consulted for organizations looking to setup a sound system/studio. I enjoy recording my own music in my home studio, and learning to play new instruments. I hope to pass my love for music to the next generation! *** Lesson Details *** I am a very laid back instructor... as you will find out! I understand that not everyone learns at the same rate; however, I am a perfectionist and don't allow students to advance until they have learned a particular skill. I would rather a student take forever to learn a song, and practice it with good technique, than be able to play it right away with poor form and posture! I reinforce the value of working toward goals and celebrate with students when they reach them.  I understand that every student has different interests and reasons for wanting to learn an instrument... I try to focus on the areas that are of interest to the student, because a student who is enjoying themself will excel.  This does not mean that the subjects and skills that are not of interest will not be taught, because I also believe in being a well-rounded musician. I teach both jazz (theory/improvisation) and classical (composed) music. *** Studio Equipment *** My studio is currently not optimal for teaching... I hope to change this soon!! *** Travel Equipment *** I provide lesson books and other learning materials, but expect to be reimbursed. I expect the student to have their own instrument/equipment. Piano students are required to have a piano or a keyboard with 88 weighted keys (hammer-action), a piano bench and a pedal. Guitar/bass students must have an acoustic/electric guitar/bass with a strap or footstool, pick, and cable and amplifier if applicable! Digital audio students must have their own computer, Digital Audio workstation (software), digital audio interface, speakers/headphones and midi controller. ALL STUDENTS NEED A DEDICATED NOTEBOOK (college rule or staff)!! No loose papers, pads or folders please! *** Specialties *** I specialize in piano, electric bass, diatonic theory, and jazz improvisation!

Jonathan is a laid-back and patient professional. He has been incredible in guiding my daughter thru the basics of piano this year.

Jonathan is an incredible teacher and I feel lucky that he teaches in my area. Both my daughter and I are taking piano lessons with him. If I learned piano like he teaches when I was younger then I doubt I would have ever quit as a teenager.
