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.

I have a fluid teaching approach based on my REAL LIFE EXPERIENCE with an emphasis on improving technique, musicianship and a “truth is love approach” to ensure musical improvement within the first two weeks of lessons! I sincerely believe creating music should be a joyful & fulfilling experience and one that will be a positive change in someone’s life (as it has been for mine). I teach all genres of music on multiple instruments and specialize in audition preparation, real-life gig preparation and musical mastery. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations, while having a good time doing something that they love.

Wade is the rare combination of a talented accomplished musician with the ability to communication with the students. He continues to perform and study with experts in the music field. I was truly impressed with how he built relationships with the students. It is obvious that he cares about each individual and wants what is best for him/her.

Wade is an incredible instructor. He is extremely passionate about his craft which is evident in the way that he teaches his students. He pushed me to be a better musician and I knew that I was receiving high-quality instruction. I would recommend him to anyone. I would take lessons with him again in a heart beat.

Online Guitar Teacher

I am a full time musician and music teacher with over 20 years experience teaching guitar in one on one as well as group settings. I enjoy teaching all styles of music (especially jazz) and working with students of all ages.
I have founded and currently direct two Rock Band programs as well as teaching between 25-30 private students in my studio weekly. My students range in age between 6 and 73 years. I will create your lesson plan based on your goals and learning style. I can teach you standard notation, tablature or how to better use your ear. We can incorporate all three approaches. As your teacher I will guide you to having the most enjoyable experience you can learning guitar.
As well as guitar I teach beginner and intermediate ukulele and beginner bass. I also teach all levels of music theory. If a student is interested, a knowledge of theory is essential to understanding how songs are written as well as how to improvise.

I can't say enough great things about Patricia as a teacher. Her love of music, her enthusiasm for the guitar and her deep understanding of harmony were standout qualities that really made her a great teacher for me. I recommend her highly.

Patricia's forte is rock and jazz but don't rule out contemporary and classical. Her knowledge and flexibility enable thinking outside the box and tailoring lessons to every student's needs. Her lessons are always informative, fun, and will give the student a strong musical base from which to build upon.

My daughters first online lessons and a wonderful experience! Ruben is very engaging, friendly and knowledgeable. He is easy to contact, accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommend!

My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

Online Guitar Teacher

I have been playing guitar for just over 10 years now. I typically begin with guitar when writing a song and love playing along to just about anything. With diligent practice, a new student on the guitar can expect to be able to play basic solos, read tablature and chord charts after just a few weeks. I particularly enjoy working with singer/songwriters who have intermediate experience on guitar because I have a handful of shortcuts and ways of thinking, that connect all the dots and cultivate musical proficiency in any genre. As with all instruments, the ability to replicate what you hear in music you listen to, is the most useful thing I can teach you. This is done with ear training and music theory (pattern based learning).

About Julian

I have professionally played toured and/or taught on a variety of instuments including Bass, Drums, Guitar, Piano, Ukulele and Voice for the past 8 years all over the world. My main focus ha

This was my 14 y/o and my very first lesson. We learned chords, strum patterns, and melody. Super fun evening! Julian even gave my 12 y/o a lesson on his drum set while we practiced on our guitars. Now the family is hooked! Excited for our lesson next week.
David
Julian has spent lots and lots of fun time with his nephews and nieces (age 13-2), playing music with and teaching--ukulele, piano, guitar and drums over the last few years, and as a result they all have some great skills, confidence, and excitement about music. He's kind and very tuned in to where his students are.
I'm his Dad so I've seen how rewarding it can be for his students. He's also given me a basic set of skills on the guitar. It goes without saying, I recommend him highly!!

"Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa"

He would always ask what I wanted to learn about and made it a very personalized experience. Dan is the main reason I stuck with the instrument. I had taken guitar lessons prior but the instructor was dry and uninspired, switching to Dan was the best decision I could have made."

I attended Berklee College of Music's 5 week summer program this past year and tested into both the highest music theory and musicianship classes, thanks to what I learned from Tom. He is very knowledgeable about not only theory, but also improvisation, reading, and performance. Anyone would be lucky yo have Tom as a teacher!"
