Overview:
I am both a musician and a mentor to people who want to enter into the music industry. Music has been a fundamental part of my life from when I was just five years old, and has continued to be my passion and career. I did not always think I would be a musician professionally, but while at university I discovered a new meaning to music and the opportunities it possessed. Soon after I graduated with a B.A. in music technology and a minor in piano performance and went on to form my own music and sound design company.
EXPERIENCE
My teaching experience has been drastically influenced by changes in my life both as a student and a performer. My early education was heavily influenced by traditional teaching methods in classical music. So when it came time to study my first introductory jazz course I was rocked to my core. I began not only to enjoy the music I played, but became more aware of the relationships between keys, chords, scales and notes. Immediately I began to adopt certain strategies that I had been taught for my own students, and the result was amazing!
METHODS USED
It is my intention that all of my students understand the importance and opportunities of music. Music is reviving for the soul, academically productive, and a lucrative choice of career if done right. My practice materials for beginner students are flexible. I often use the Alfred or Nancy Faber series, however I find it more important that beginning students grasp general concepts, while simultaneously practicing fine touch on the keys. For intermediate and advanced students, my focus is on developing their musicianship in areas that are lacking and (if they so choose), business world application.
LESSON STYLE
Each student gets a chance to listen, write, read, and play music at every lesson. The emphases of lesson materials will depend on the student's goals, but each element of music is important in its own right. It is also crucial to listen to other genres and styles that may be out of the scope of the lesson. Music is a complex and wonderful creation, and there have been many contributions to it over many years. I am a big advocate of learning the rule before breaking the rule. With a solid background in technique, form, and interpretation students excel at being creative in their own right.

Fun! Jonathan taught me lots of theory and found some really cool songs I had never heard before. Lessons could've been a little more organized but I enjoyed every lesson!

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
