About Jonathan

I've been teaching music for over ten years. I am a certified teacher and have taught in the Public School system of Franklin Township for 4 years. Before I started teaching I was a substitute teacher for over 6 months teaching a variety of subjects. I have learned many different techniques over the years that have helped me to be a more effective teacher. I endeavor to keep things fun and educational.

The greatest joy in the world is to see the growth of a student. I love to see students learning information and having a good time. I take great pride in the fact that students that didn't know anything about the piano I've been able to teach them songs that they love.

I'm able to get to the root of the problem and help students progress

I've taught students of all ages from 4- 64. I play the piano, saxophone, clarinet, trumpet, flute, drums, tuba. I write my own music, I run an open mic in Somerset, I have my degree in Music Ed with a concentration on Instrumental Music. I've played in several Bands and play Piano for my Church.
