I received about ten lessons in jazz piano from Jonathan. The lessons went very well and I am very satisfied. I learned and improved a lot, much more than I initially expected.
Jonathan has three good qualities as an instructor. First off he is very enthusiastic and passionate about music. He has been interested in and played music all of his life. His energy and excitement for music was very present in our lessons. Second, he is quite talented and knowledgeable about music in general, and jazz piano in particular. He has played multiple instruments (trumpet, drums, saxophone, piano, violin even), and multiple genres (classical, jazz, rock and roll). He is also quite good at composition and showed me some of his own creations, which are definitely praiseworthy. This broad experience and skill makes him a more than qualified instructor. Third, he is patient. I am a pretty slow learner when it comes to music but I never felt that Jonathan was frustrated or mad at me for not understanding or learning slowly.
