Jonathan teaches music, not technique, not songs. If you want to learn what it is to make music on the guitar, the bass or the harmonica, this is your guy. He brings excellent chops, excellent musicianship and real energy to the lesson. A musician's music teacher.Feb 8, 2017
Jonathan Kalb has been my guitar teacher now for a little over a half a year and Im delighted to say, I am much more than pleased with my lessons; I cant wait until the next one comes thats how good. I took lessons previously and was OK with them, but found myself wandering and lacking a sense of commitment to the teacher and to my studies. Dry. Im not a kid anymore and was looking for a teacher who could work with my adult enthusiasm, excitement, my talent, and not be rooted to teaching me the pentatonic scales in all keys before we could get to some playing and having some fun, too... I was hoping for a teacher who could personalize his teaching skills, and for me, Jonathan came through with flying colors. Hes so much more than a One Size Fits All teacher; hes a real person reachable, able to identify my needs, my strengths and weaknesses, and takes this into full consideration during our lessons. Hes an experienced, talented teacher. Simple. Hes a person that really knows his stuff from musical theory to the many styles of playing, i.e., blues, jazz, folk, country and even rock; he can play and more importantly he can teach um all! Im an aspiring singer/songwriter and in addition to helping me define those strange chords Im playing, he inspires me to grow on. Oh, and one more thing: If your lesson is an hour long and theres something important happening, he wont cut you off - hell take the extra time needed to get you to the end of the measure, comfortably.Dec 23, 2013
Guitar Lessons (for adults)
Just started and find that Jonathan is very talented and patient. Never felt this comfortable trying to learn guitar from a teacher before. I am an experienced player and can confidently say he can teach blues both pick and finger style as well as jazz and rock. Peace fellow musicians.. Darren.Mar 2, 2017Verified
Jonathan is a professional -- a pleasure to work with and a pleasure to see perform!Apr 25, 2019Verified
Jonathan Kalb and his base player played at my 50th birthday party. They were so good!! They really were excellent. My friends are still talking about the great band I had at the party. They sat in the garden and played and their music gave the place an almost magical atmosphere. They were extremely friendly and likeable. It was apparent that they enjoyed playing, which added to the good atmosphere. Thank you so much, Jonathan!!Aug 3, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I normally charge $75 per hr when I teach at the student's or my home. If I teach out of a studio I have to pay $16 for the room's rental so half of this is attached to the price.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I listen to both the student's playing and also what they desire to learn.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Working as a professional for 40 years both as entertainer and teacher
