Overview

I’m a experienced guitarist with over 13 years experience and I’ve been teaching private guitar and bass lessons since 2009. I specialize in teaching rock guitar in the styles of Slash, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, and Angus Young just to name a few, But
I’ve also played everything from Lead, Rhythm and even bass guitar in various bands spanning all genres from Rock, Blues, Country and even Pop.

I focus on making a curriculum that is fun and unique for each student’s style and taste in music. We’ll focus on learning Rhythm playing such as Chords, Chord melodies, and various grooves and rhythm styles. To lead playing such as improvisation along with different scales ranging from the pentatonic/blues scales to modes and arpeggios.

Whether you’re a new player or just looking to improve your lead or rhythm playing. I’ll be able to help you get to where you want to be as a musician.

I've had a guitar in my room for a while but never took lessons or ever properly learned how to play. Decided one day to take lessons and stumbled upon Jonny. We have done a few sessions so far and it's been a blast! He went over the basics and slowly started teaching me songs I have always wanted to play. Jonny is a fantastic teacher that is very knowledgeable and excited about playing the guitar. I would highly recommend him to anybody looking to learn how to play.

Great teacher! I've only been taking lessons for a little over a month and I'm already playing some of my favorite songs on the guitar.

I've been singing in a few bands but recently got an offer to play bass and sing for a band which I've never done before. Jonny was not only able to help me play the bass but he helped me learn the bands songs and sing and play them at the same time. Jonny just doesn't teach his students the same thing he really focuses on each students individuals goals and makes a lesson based around them. Bottom line A+ Great teacher for whatever it is your looking to play.

I've been a big fan of rock music ever since I was a little kid and only now in my 40s am I starting to pick up the guitar. Jonny not only has a great knowledge of the guitar but of rock n' roll music and how it works. He has taught me so much about how to play like my favorite players such as Slash, Eddie Van Halen, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. I highly recommend Jonny to any fan of Rock music who wants to play the guitar.

I've never picked up the guitar before taking lessons with him and in a short time I've learned Chord shapes, major/minor scales, and Pentatonic scales just to name a few. He is patient, fun, and a great teacher.

My son Michael is 5 years old and I’ve been having a hard time finding a teacher for him, but since he’s been taking lessons with Jonny he’s starting to excel at the instrument. He’s learning his favorite songs and having a good time doing it. Jonny is nice, charismatic, and he makes his lesson fun for his students. Great teacher I’d highly recommend.

I've been taking private lessons with Jonny for some time now and he's been awesome. He took me from basic scales and cords to more complex riffs and solos iv been tryin to figure out.
I started off as a self-taught, hobby guitarist and now I sometimes do paid gigs playin cover songs. Thanks Jonny D!
