Learn and understand what makes music pleasing to the ear... apply basic fundamentals to more advanced theory to improve your playing on any instrument! Must have knowledge of your instrument, with the exception of the instruments listed as subjects that I teach (piano or electric/acoustic guitar/bass)!
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.
