Overview

Hello, my name is Jonathan and I would like to be your guitar teacher.
My interest in teaching began a month ago. I wanted to become a better guitar player and I approached teaching to build skills not only for the guitar but for life, in general.
I developed a system based on four learning methods to efficiently progress in the instrument and understanding of music and theory. These four methods, Multi-sensory Learning, Rote Learning, Participation and Involvement and Group Interaction, ensures a learning experience that promotes quick, efficient and expansive progression. We learn easy and hard.
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."
The end result is a skill that is entertaining for the spirit, rewarding to the soul and beneficial for the self.

Guitar has been an interest to me since the first time I heard a distorted guitar. Rock influenced my growing life.
I wanted a guitar but I began playing only 8 years ago. My mother knew I would love a guitar but could not trust me with one until she acknowledged the intense interest I had in music influenced by the guitar. She bought me a guitar when I was fifteen and it was a very good choice but a bad one as well. I learned quick and became an advanced player within two years. I spent many hours practicing songs and exercises, composing and improvising and maintaining my guitar: although, these hours were supposed to be committed to school. I would sometimes miss school and homework to play guitar all day. Like Einstein on the guitar.

Awards

Guitar Solo Contest

May 2010High School

My high school hosted an annual band competition called "Battle of the Bands". Bands would compete for the best performer and teachers judged based of their skill level and how well they influenced the audience. A guitar solo contest was also a part in it. Guitarists would compete for the best and fastest players. I won by far. I improvised the solo, presenting pieces I had composed in minor, major and harmonic minor scales making a rock, heavy metal and classical sound.
