Growing up in New York, Jonathan knew he wanted to pursue a career in music at an early age. After several years of taking private guitar lessons, Jonathan decided to further his education at Berklee College of Music. With his focus on guitar studies, he went on to ﬁnish his performing arts degree, at Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, California. At Musicians Institute, he also had the opportunity to study music business and music technology, and now continues his work as a professional musician in LA.
Jonathan is a multi-instrumentalist and is well versed in teaching many styles of music, as well as recording techniques and the use of Digital Audio Workstations to produce music. With a wide variety of teaching techniques, he is capable of helping students with anything from sight reading Bach, learning a chord melody of a favorite standard, or even producing the next Pop or Hiphop song. He looks forward to sharing his skills, insight, and unique teaching approach with students of all capabilities. As a music teacher, Jonathan’s goal is to inspire and hone the skills it takes to become an independent artist as well as encourage students to ﬁnd their own voice as musicians.
