Drums, Guitar, Piano, & Voice Los Angeles, CA
Born and raised in Northern Virginia, Jonathan began playing cello at age 9 and guitar at 13. An immense passion for classic rock, blues, and jazz lead him to study at Musicians Institute (M.I.) in Los Angeles, where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Contemporary Guitar Performance. At M.I., he studied with some of the most sought after L.A. session players, including Carl Verheyen, Sid Jacobs, and Dan Gilbert. While guitar is his primary instrument, he also plays and teaches piano, voice, drums, and ukulele. When he’s not playing gigs around L.A, he’s writing, arranging, recording, and mixing his own songs and compositions.
Jonathan believes that teaching not only motivates and inspires, but makes what seems impossible to the beginner student, entirely manageable. As a teacher, he feels great satisfaction in simplifying musical concepts for his students, so they can learn a new piece one step at a time, at a comfortable pace. Fun is an important part of his students’ process!
"I'm having a lot of fun with Eugene's Music Studio as it's pushing me to my goals better than I could ever do. Two lessons in and I don't regret find this studio. Great services!" - Jairo D.
"Jonathan is very patient with our young son, who is nearly three. He tries various short activities during each lesson that seem to fit well with his attention span. He targets different skills, such as building a sense of rhythm or gaining some familiarity with the workings of a piano, and tries to frame things in ways that are appealing to a preschool-aged child." - Asher Fogg
"I love coming to my lessons! I enjoy learning about the range of the piano and the exciting music I can make." - Heidy
