Icon Collective Music Production School (Music Production)
My name is Jonathan and I am twenty-one years old. I was raised in LA and have recently moved to the Portland Area (September 2016). I grew up in a musical home, watching my parents play various instruments. I learned to read sheet music when I was five years old and have been taking piano lessons on and off again ever since. I was in the Elementary School Orchestra for a year and I played the upright bass. When I entered Middle School, I joined the School Band and played the Alto and Baritone Saxophone. In High School, I continued playing in Band and joined Marching Band. During my High School career I played the Bari Sax, Bass Clarinet, French Horn, and Piano.
After graduating High School I moved to Santa Cruz to pursue Computer Programing, however I found that all along music had truly been my passion. I fell in love with music production and DJing and after taking courses in Songwriting and Music Synthesis, I moved back to LA to pursue music professional. I started at Icon Collective Music Production School and graduated this September (2016). While there I took courses in Ableton Live 9, Ear Training, Live Recording, Logic Pro X, Music Business, Mixing & Mastering, Piano, Songwriting, and Synthesis. Attending that school was one of the greatest decisions of my life and to pass on the knowledge that I have learned and inspire others like I have been is my ultimate goal.
In addition to music, throughout my life I attended a sleep-away camp in the Sequoia National Forest. I grew up in the program and now as an adult, for the past 4 years I have been a counselor working with children ages 8 - 16. This too is one of my greatest passions; I love to work with the youth and mentor and help them grow into young adults full of inspiration and awe for the world around them.
I have sixteen years of Music Theory under my belt and am well versed in the subject. The piano is my favorite instrument and while at school my classmates consistently looked to me for mentoring. I have been producing for three years now and have released a single and an EP. I have had access to the best brains in the business and have gained a lot of knowledge from them.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have been producing my own music for three years and have recently started producing others. I have an extensive knowledge of Ableton Live 9 and Logic Pro X. Lastly, in order to graduate from Icon Collective Music Production School, I needed to hand in a three track EP, written, recorded, and produced by myself.
