Jon is a great music teacher and a great player. I have been taking bass and guitar lessons from Jon for over a year now, and I continue to be totally impressed by his playing and his ability to take his enthusiasm for music and transmit it to others. He is a good-natured guy with a relaxed, easygoing approach to teaching. His ability to break down a song that you want to learn, even if he is not that familiar with the song, learn it and play it note for note just like the recording, transcribe it into tab form, and teach you that song right there and then in a matter of 20-30 minutes is an amazing thing to witness. Just ask him to play the solo from Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb, and you will be blown away--guaranteed. He will nail the solo, and then show you how to play it!
Unfortunately, I have had to take a couple of months off from taking lessons from Jon because of my work, but I am really looking forward to resuming my lessons with him. I really am missing the weekly lessons, which have come to be an important part of my weekly routine, and I look forward to getting back to it! It's a very fun experience to learn to play so many great songs in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
