Jonas has been teaching our daughter, Allison, for about 7 years. I can't begin to say enough about Jonas as a teacher, mentor and person. He has given Allison such confidence in herself and her music . . . Jonas always goes above and beyond - encouraging Allie to perform and write music, working 1 on 1 with her to record her music and getting her used to mics and sound systems. He has been a huge influence on Allison over the years . . .she truly looks to Jonas as one of the people she admires most in her life. We can't recommend Jonas' Guitar Lessons enough!Sep 28, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Music studio rates: $50 for 30 minutes, $70 for 45 minutes, and $90 for 60 minutes. Sliding scale available, please inquire. I can also travel to you for a lesson, and charge an additional $5-10 (depending on the distance) for my travel time. I also often work with groups. If you and a friend or two are interested in learning together, let's talk!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start by asking a couple of questions (sort of two-way interview) and listening to your answers: -What music do you love? -What skillset are you looking to build? -What songs do you dream of playing? Then we set goals together. Perhaps you already have a goal in mind? Or perhaps you’d like support in creating goals for you together? It can be as as simple as: “I’ve always loved music, and I just want to learn how to play, maybe with friends or family eventually”. Or as complex as: “I want to learn more music theory and explore songwriting.” I believe that I’m not teaching you something totally new (even if you’ve never picked up an instrument before), I’m helping you to unlock your own ability to play, to uncover something you already have. Music is for all of us. Bottom line, I want you to enjoy the process of learning to play. The focus isn’t just to get it right (though we do that); it’s to enjoy yourself and the music along the way. I love to share the culture of music with you, to listen to a solo on a song you love and break it apart, and to have fun. I respect and get to know your unique learning style, and give you exercises and explorations that strengthen your abilities between sessions, building your personal practice.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor's of Music from the 'Mozarteum' University in Salzburg, Austria (known as the mecca of classical music!) where I also took music pedagogy classes. I graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music with a Master's of Music + Concentration in Music-in-Education.
