*** Lesson Details ***
There is no "standard formula" to lessons. Each student has their own unique background, needs, and goals. Lessons tend to be somewhat casual but are structured in such a way as to meet the unique requirements of the student.
To accomplish your goals, there are a few requirements and basic expectations that the student and parent must meet.
The first is practice. Students are expected to practice daily for at least the length of their lesson time. This, above all else, is essential to progress. It is also expected that a parent will attend lessons for students who are too young to drive themselves here. It's important for a parent to guide the student's practice time (particularly for younger students) to ensure that the most is gained from it. This is why I ask that a parent observe lessons.
Each student or parent should bring to each lesson a notebook, pencils (with erasers). The notebook will be used to record notes about each lesson, homework, practice advice, etc. Pencils (not pens...nobody's perfect!) are used by composers to record their creations and performers to mark their music. Both of these essential practices are subject to changing thought and must be open to change. So no ink, please!
Performers: It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons and will be a large focus for all non-readers. Lessons are not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Concerning repertoire, it will be selected based on the student's learning needs but also with their input. The main emphasis on performance lessons, however, will be technique and reading. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.
Note: Voice students must be at least 16 years of age.
Composers: Just as with performers, it is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons. Many young composers have great ideas but can only hear them in their heads or play them on an instrument. Lessons will allow you to obtain the skills to write them down with greater speed, accuracy, and clarity. More advance students will also include exploring a wider range of harmonic languages, advanced notation, instrumentation, orchestration, and aural skills. Students should come to the first lesson with examples of their work, either written, notated, or recorded in a digital format. They should be prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.
• To reschedule a lesson, more than one day notice is required.
• Make up lessons must be scheduled before the next regular lesson.
• A make up lesson cannot be scheduled in place of a regular lesson.
• If, for any reason, two 30-minute lessons are scheduled one right after the other, they will be charged as two 30-minute lessons, not one 60 minute lesson which is a different rate.
• If, for any reason, two 45-minute lessons are scheduled one right after the other, they will be charged as two 45-minute lessons, not one 90 minute lesson which is a different rate.
• the studio space is also inhabited by two lovely cats. Do consider this when signing up for lessons.

He is tremendously knowledgeable about many aspects of music composition, theory and technique and is fun to be with during every lesson.
As a violin and viola teacher, my goal is to give my students fun and productive lessons. I teach my students all the essential technical and musical principles which help them to succeed at reaching their goals and avoid developing harmful habits along the way. I do not follow an exact method or course. My approach is to teach each student according to his/her particular needs which will usually require a combination of books or methods.
I have had the privilege of learning violin under some of the top violin teachers in the US. Many of my teachers were graduates of Juliard and other top music schools where they studied with some of the most famous violin teachers of the 20th century in

Jonathan is also a professional musician, performing shows around the city every week.
Thanks to his expert training, Jonathan is able to customize and adjust every lesson to suit each student's individual needs and learning traits in order to optimize enjoyment and success.
In lessons, all facets of music can be addressed, including music theory, tempo and rhythm, improvisation and soloing, grooves, ear training and any other techniques needing to be developed.
Study into specific genres is also an option, including jazz, funk, s
Another major focus in lessons is helping each student develop their own "voice" in their playing. This is the most rewarding part of being a musician, as learning how to develop your playing to channel your own mental, physical and emotional feelings and ideas leads to great self discovery, self confidence and awareness. It is also a great stress reliever and can be very therapeutic!
Lessons with Jonathan are highly engaging and educational, but they are also fun! Jonathan creates a lesson plan unique to each student's needs and skills to ensure maximum results and progression inside of a comfortable and fun atmosphere! All the educational material means nothing if you aren't finding the enjoyment and fun in the lesson to actually practice and learn the material outside of it! Jonathan approaches lessons with a professional and laid-back demeanor looking to keep a smile and interest on the student's face from the beginning of the lesson to the end!

Having 20 years of playing experience definitely helps my teaching. Also, I have been through a period of three years without a cello teacher and having to re-work myself for all the basics and fundamental work after I started taking lesson again. This experience taught me so much on how to start learning the instrument from scratch and also how to "rehab" your bad habit.
As a pedagogue, this is my 8th year of teaching the cello. I am fully trained and registered with
As a cellist, I have the privilege to work with some of the greatest musicians in the world such as Lorin Maazel, Lynn Harrell, Peter Salaff and the Cavani Quartet. I received the Appassionata Endowed Scholarship in Music from Shepherd School to study with Norman Fischer. Before I moved to Houston, I studied with Mark Kosower, who is the current cello principal of the Cleveland Orchestra. I have had the honour to receive the Hong Kong Arts Circle Fellowship from Asian Cultural Council and the Ohio Federation of Music Clubs music scholarship for my studies. I am also the Gold Prize Winner in Cleveland Cello Society Competition – Collegiate Division and the 1st Place Winner in American Protégé International Piano and Strings Competition in 2016.

I've worked with students ranging from age 3 to age 62 in the year or so I've been tutoring. I've taught piano mostly ,but am more technically proficient with guitar(electic/acoustic/classical).
I'm a songwriter and recording/performing artist, my style is very ecclectic and inspired by anything from classical, jazz, avant garde, to pop and folk music. I'm confident and versatile. Im comfortable playing or even performing with most instruments. It's taken alot of practice, reasearch, experimentation, and collaboration but over time musc has give
I believe in the cultivation of a living musicality.
My approach emphasises the importance of process, exploration and discovery, as well as the study and analysis of traditional concepts. I propose, active listening to be the simplest form of composition. And as musicians an active ear is central, not only in practice, but generally, for creative evolution and innovation.
I've found the most effective methods effectively balance theory and practice.
I believe the biggest inhibitor to growth, musical or otherwise, is a lack of confidence. A lack that comes from too much pressure to produce idealized results-- fear of mistakes...
I embrace the developmental process,
I work with every student to make each lesson plan efficient, meaningful and inspiring.
I help my students become confident violists through focus on proper technique and proficiency in musical language. Students can expect to become more fluent in all of their scales while learning how to express themselves through their solo, chamber, and orchestral repertoire. My students have won college and high school scholarships, earned chairs in re
Each of my students receives tailored instruction based on their strengths, goals, and needs. I love watching my students grow into musical individuals, and I look forward to meeting you!
Most importantly though, I have a passion for teaching and love to help my students improve. There is nothing more satisfying than communicating knowledge that I've learned to my students and see the progress build throughout the months of hard work. I have taken piano pedagogy courses throughout my undergraduate and master's studies, and am comfortable with teaching students of all ages and levels.

Through the years I have played in bands, taught private lessons, and competed as a solo competitor and member of pipe bands. Along the way I have had the privilege of being taught by greats such as Jack Lee, Michael Cusack Jr., Murray Henderson, Alasdair Gillies, Roddy McLeod, Bruce Gandy, and Stuart Liddell.
