Introduction: Free trial lesson for new clients! Hello! My name is Jon, and I'd be delighted to work with you! I tailor a customized lesson program to meet the needs of each individual student. I have 25 years of experience as a professional musician and educator. I'm also very warm and personable in my approach. I make the music lesson experience about YOU, not me, and we'll definitely have a great time while we work together. I'm classically trained, but I'm also very proficient and well-versed in other styles such as rock/pop and jazz. For beginners, I keep things very simple and we go step by step at YOUR pace. For the experienced folks, I simply meet you where you're at, fill in any gaps in your training, and move forward from there. Please contact me for more detailed info. Thanks! I like being able to share what I know with others. I've had many people inspire and mentor me over the years, and now I like to pay that forward and do the same!

We took our son (10) to drum lessons with Jon for more than a year and it was a wonderful experience. It was a top notch experience. Jon was very patient with our son when he found a lesson that was challenge. And he was a great cheerleader when our son mastered a skill. If you are looking for someone to teach your child how to play the drums, you won't be disappointed working with Jon.

Jon has been a great instructor. As someone with previous experience with the instrument and reading music, he helped calibrate our lessons and made sure I had established a solid foundation. I’ve enjoyed getting a nice mix of theory and instrument specific knowledge out of our lessons, and he’s been flexible to ensure I was getting everything I wanted out of them. Most importantly, he’s inspired me to get over the years long plateau I’ve had with learning guitar, and I’ve picked up a lifelong hobby. Thanks Jon!
