Our daughter has been taking drum lessons from Jon for over 4 years now. Jon's lessons are fun, focused, comfortable, and well rounded; focusing largely on technique, but additionally on music theory, music history/appreciation, and musicianship. Jon pays close attention to the students growth, changing needs, etc., adapting and customizing lesson plans as needed. With this well rounded approach, Jon has been able to build her skills to a level that allow her to confidently play live concerts on stage, with other very talented young musicians. And most importantly, she loves taking lessons from Jon. Whenever I hear of someone who is looking for drum instruction, I am always quick to recommend Jon Powers. He's a true professional and a great guy. Thanks Jon!
