Jon is an amazing teacher–he teaches all FOUR of my kids (one piano, 2 recorder, one guitar) and manages to keep them focused and entertained and learning about music. They love it! This year my oldest (fourth grader) is going to try clarinet. She’s already asking for Jon to teach her as soon as we start school again. He is kind, patient and super-knowledgeable–everything you’d want in a great teacher!

My son has been taking saxophone lessons with Jon for a number of years. Jon is a great musician and a wonderful teacher. He is very patient and supportive. I am sure that my son’s experience with Jon has contributed to his decision to continue with the saxophone in High School. We are really grateful to have found him.
Jon is certainly a “Five Star Instructor”. My two children are “Clarinet’ tutored weekly from our Manhattan home. Over the last year I have noticed a significant growth in Oliver and Dominics individual skill-set and motivation to enjoy their instrument.
Jon’s weekly visits continue to deliver high levels of instruction, specific goal setting and immense motivation to achieve more with greater confidence. These secret ingredients coupled with Jon’s relaxed style and amazing humor deliver professional instruction week after week.
Would we ever considering switching to another tutor…definitely NOT!
Jon has great credentials as serious musician. He plays multiple instruments, regularly gigs and is genuinely passionate about a broad range of music. He can provide technical training but also allows for stylistic flexibility, depending on the mood of the music. Gone are the days when you get a crusty old school man making you spend 1 hour a day on scales! He lets me dictate the pace and taste in music, which is perfect for me. As a busy professional, he is relaxed about me having a flexible lesson schedule too. Great teacher.
