Introduction: *NOTE: ONLY AVAILABLE FOR ONLINE LESSONS* Hey there! My name is Jon, I am a drummer, bandleader, composer, and teacher with an unusual background that has helped form and inform my musical interests and output. ​I have studied with many great teachers including John Yarling of the University of Miami, John Ramsay, who I studied with while attending Berklee College of Music, and most recently, with jazz greats Kendrick Scott and Jeff Ballard. Additionally, I have been fortunate enough to perform with some great bands including a tour with world class fusion group Indialucia as part of the Festival of Inner Peace, performing in Chicago, Indiana, Cincinnati, and Detroit (2016). More recently, I had the opportunity to perform as part of internationally-touring band Seven Eyes, first in Switzerland, and then in London as part of the 2018 London Jazz Festival. I have also performed with my own bands in Boston and South Florida. Additionally I have performed in various settings in Switzerland, Puerto Rico, and France since 2019. ​As a music teacher in South Florida, I have taught students as young as 3, and as old as 55+. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing students accomplish things on the drum set they didn't think they could, at any age! On drums I am experienced in teaching many styles -- including but not limited to -- rock, jazz, funk, hip hop, Latin, and Brazilian music. I am also comfortable teaching jazz and classical harmony, having taken all the core Berklee harmony classes, plus advanced elective harmony courses beyond that. HOW LESSONS WORK The first lesson is always free. In that lesson we can discuss the student's musical interests, goals, and map out a general outline of how lessons will proceed. This lesson also can be used for you to get a feel for my teaching style, ask any questions you may have, and as an opportunity for you to decide if you want to commit to drum lessons with me. ​If you decide to continue, you pay up front for 4 lessons, and sign a contract committing to doing 8, 12, 16, or 20 lessons. After the lesson package is complete, you can sign on for another package, or terminate lessons at that time.

Drum Lessons

Jonathan is down to earth and easy to relate to. I am at best an intermediate drummer and during my first lesson Jon immediately picked up on a fundamental weakness and showed me what to work on to correct it. I particularly like that he follows up on what we worked on the previous week to gauge my improvement from the previous lesson. The hour long lesson gives us time to do the follow up and correction, and time to work on new material. Since I don’t read music Jon is introducing me to reading at a pace that is raising my interest in wanting to read. This is the first time I have tried using an online teacher and to my surprise it works quite well. The connection using Zoom is very clear and Jon is able to visually demonstrate what he is teaching me on his own kit over the Zoom connection. Its just as if I am sitting in the same room with him. I am making more progress in these weekly hour long lessons than I have in past in person lessons mainly because of Jon’s willingness to listen to my questions and familiarity with the difficulties associated with learning this instrument. I highly recommend Jon!

Drum Lessons

Jon is great with my 12 year old. He quickly figured out where he was in his training, and met there to hit the ground running. Practice is more fun and he's sounding better every day.

Drum Lessons

Jon has been a great teacher. My skill level has increased in less than a month. He has corrected bad techniques that I picked up during self taught days. He is patient, easy to work with and focuses on technique and song practice. Would highly recommend.

Drum Lessons

Jon understands that every student learns in different ways. My 10-year-old son is his student and the most telling sign of all and most positive thing I can offer is that my son really enjoys his lessons with Jon and looks forward to each week.

Drum Lessons

Jon is a great drum teacher. He always responds back quickly if I have a question on something between lessons. He does a great job of explaining all the details to help you understand how to play complicated grooves really easy. He teaches in a very methodical manner, making sure you understand each topic to its entirety before moving on to the next. I would highly recommend Jon for drum lessons from beginners to professionals.
