With over 30 years of teaching experience, Jon is comfortable teaching guitar and bass students of all ages and abilities. His innovative lesson program incorporates music theory, composition, and proper technique. Many students start out with guitar lessons and progress to recording workshops. These individualized workshops bolster confidence and teach marketable skills in engineering and recording. Students emerge with ability to create and cooperate with band members, producers, record labels. Jon encourages all students to find their creative voice, and gives them a safe and welcoming space to share compositions.
Students of all ages embrace this aspect of the lesson program, writing songs about things close to their heart. Younger students write songs about thier love for pizza, apple pie and summertime, while older students write about relationships, work and the realities that come with age. In either case, Jon often uses these songs to guide students through the process of mixing, recording, and performance. Lesson space features opportunity for individual or group lessons.
