Jason K. Medway, MA

About Jason

Hello, my name is Jason! I have been surrounded by music for my entire life. My father, a Berklee School of Music graduate, is an accomplished guitarist who introduced me to many forms of music as a child. At age seven he introduced me to Ringo Starr’s drum solo in “The End” by The Beatles and I knew that I wanted to learn to play percussion. Since that time, I have studied percussion theory and technique extensively with Shawn Green and Kevin Fortunato, both Berklee graduates. I studied film scoring, music theory, music history, and electronic composition at the Cambridge School of Weston under Gustavo-Assis Brasil (another Berklee graduate) and Michael Weinstein (the school’s music director and Berklee professor with an extensive list of degrees and credits). I also performed in ...

About Aaron

Berklee College of Music graduate, Aaron M., has been teaching students of all ages for over 12 years. "I love watching young musicians grow into seasoned players and have had tremendous success with all my students. I believe that learning songs and playing music is a critical element in the learning process of becoming a good drummer/pianist, and musician. This is why I bring a powered PA speaker, mp3 player, and (sometimes) a guitar to my lessons for the student to play along with and learn familiar songs. Over the years I've learned to strike a balance between Reading/Rudiments and Playing/having fun, so as to maintain students interests and growth." *** Lesson Details *** Music lessons in the comfort of your home! All ages welcome, beginner to advanced. Servicing Metro ...

My boys, ages 7 & 5, started piano lessons with Aaron a year ago. He has taught them technique & theory all while using songs they boys love. There are days that the boys are not the most cooperative. Aaron is amazingly patient and persistent in getting the boys to do their lessons. I really appreciate and have learned from this patience when it comes to the nightly practicing. I am pleased that the boys have been working with a male teacher and I think it really helps them relate to the music and the lessons. If you are looking for a patient yet knowledgeable piano teacher, I would definitely recommend Aaron.
Eric P. Foxboro, MA

About Eric

I wish to start by saying I am a proud father of two girls, currently 15 and 20 years old. I believe parenthood is an often overlooked attribute when seeking a teacher. Parents have nurtured their children since birth. I believe raising children only lends strength to a teachers ability to relate to, and understand a young student. I have always divided my life between music and the pathways of helping others. In the music field I have done so by producing, recording, performing and teaching, and in helping others, I have achieved this through managing community based treatment facilities, ER hospital crisis intervention as a psychiatric clinician and counseling. Both endeavors have been most rewarding and these disciplines have given back to me as much as I have invested in them. ...

Dr. Jonathan U. Franklin, MA

My particular area of specialization, students interested in studying within this broad range of instruments can study with me on drumset, hand percussion (and stick percussion including timbales, cowbells and agogo), mallet instruments, and classical percussion. We will study technique, time, tone, tuning, authentic performance within a range of genres, sight-reading, functioning within an ensemble (including orchestrating parts, musical support of the piece being performed, and working within a rhythm section), and improvisation.

About Dr. Jonathan

I have extensive training (including a doctorate) and experience as a performing musician, ensemble director, and teacher including 13 years of private instrumental instruction. My primary instruments are drumset, mallet percussion, and hand percussion, and I have additional experience teaching piano, bass guitar, and jazz harmony and improvisation.

I took drum lessons from Jon U. for a little over a year, and loved it. The only reason our lessons stopped is because he moved.

On our first day, Jon's first question to me was, "What do you hope to learn from me and these lessons?" I couldn't read music and I had no rhythm, and that's all I hoped to learn. I was in my forties, and wanted this to be a hobby; it was never going to be anymore than that, but Jon didn't treat this as boring or a waste of his time.

Jon was patient, professional, fun. And he was a *teacher.* Each time I mastered an assignment, he'd write me a more difficult one, and I learned more about music and became a better player than I ever thought I would.

Jon isn't just qualified to teach the mechanics. He has a Ph.D., and my favorite part of our lessons was simply discussing what's "behind" the playing: the theory behind it; what it means; viewing and contemplating what music is and what it means to us. How it changes us.

Good musicians don't always make the best instructors, but Jon U. is one of the rare ones. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I took lessons with Jonathan for about 2 years. I had never played the drums before and he did a great job of teaching me. His teaching style is great. He manages to make the dry stuff fun and keep your attention, and he is very willing to change up his plans to help you get to your goals.

The atmosphere during lessons is great as well. Taking lessons with Jon is very comfortable and relaxing, so it becomes very easy to open up and really get into the drumming.

Couldn't recommend lessons with him any more.
