Jonathan is very very patient and has all the skills to train everyone. I will recommend to everyone who needs to know, study and enjoy the excitement in playing piano, guitar and singing .
Daniel
He has a good ear and can help quickly with transcriptions. More importantly, he also gave some practical advice.
Ami K.
My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons.

Students will learn the fundamentals of bass playing technique such as note reading, posture, groove, and dexterity exercises. Students will be exposed to various styles of music and bass playing and will be encouraged to bring in material from music they enjoy. As students learn and accumulate repertoire, they will be exposed to different performance techniques, ear training exercises, and improvisation skills.

Bass is my main instrument! I am genuinely passionate about your success in becoming the best BASS player you choose to be! I like to teach with repetition (wax on wax off) and prefer to present the big picture first so that every obstacle may potentially never be an obstacle for you. I take years of teaching experience and what have been topics of frustration brought to me from students in the past. I try to smooth the road and teach you, so you get the highest yield of success for your money with as little headaches as possible :)

About Greg

Hey musician! I am EXTREMELY excited to help you get to your best potential through lots of flight hours as quickly as you like! I hope you will pick me to help you avoid common setbacks in your progress. I look forward to helping you be your best on your instrument! I play fretted and fretle

Enjoyed the lesson. Greg is very interested in the "art" of teaching.
Charlie
Our first visit - Greg was patient and explained things well. He really tried to read my 12 YO son as to what he was experiencing & feeling. He was also encouraging which was great!
John
My son (electric guitar) and I (bass) love learning from Greg. He's a very clear teacher who gets his students and can work form as well as theory. Super combination and we're both farther along than I think we expected to be when we started. Highly recommended.

"I took bass lessons with Jason during the summer. Jason provided a thorough assessment of my skills and challenged me to improve with each lesson. He was always well-prepared when the next lesson commenced. I could also always count on Jason to patiently answer any questions I had. He is also versatile in his teachings (knowledgeable about music theory, too) and will do his best to make certain your musical interests are addressed. Jason’s calm demeanor and patience were also appreciated.Jason did a great job of making certain I was satisfied with my lesson and what I was learning.
