Dan is truly enthusiastic about sharing his love for his native language! Of course his pronounciation is excellent, and he has infinite patience. He is also open to meeting his student wherever they are in the process. I am really enjoying learning Danish with Dan!

Great first lesson.

He pays attention to detail, is super organized with a definite plan and knows how to keep a student's interest. He is balanced and very realistic in his approach. He is talented and meets the student where he is. He is even transcribing a Bollywood song for my son and my son is loving it! He is flexible... We are so happy to have found him.

First lesson with Avi was great! I have been playing guitar for about 6 months self-taught and could feel myself plateauing, in need of a teacher. He made things really easy by listening to what I want to improve upon and learn, immediately giving some useful tips on things I had been struggling with, and going over what we could do to achieve my goals. He's very good at explaining things in a way that is clear and doesn't make them seem intimidating, even if it's something I typically have a hard time with. Also, it was a great mix of physical guitar stuff (such as helping me improve barre chords), basic theory to begin with (such as how to form a chord), and also breaking down mental barriers which had previously kept me intimidated by songwriting. I am already much more confident and ready to try new things! Overall, if you are looking to improve at guitar or start for the first time, I recommend Avi.
Theresa
Avi works with my 8 year old son once a week. He is prompt, friendly and my son looks forward to seeing Avi every week. My husband and I could not be happier with this experience.
Dylan
My son loved the first lesson. He is very excited for his next lesson.

Jonathan is truly outstanding. I was fortunate enough to meet him and begin working on guitar again with him in person when he lived in Virginia. He was so helpful I have continued lessons online and I continue to feel the quality and what I'm getting out of the lessons is as good as when we were able to be in the same room. The best thing I can probably say is that I have really enjoyed learning from such an accomplished musician while never feeling intimidated or thinking, "he must think I really stink at this!" He's very supportive and will make you a better player...whatever that means to you.
Gina A.
Jonathan is a wonderful teacher. I would recommend him to others for lessons.
Shanna T.
Great instructor...very good at breaking things down to help you succeed.
