Jon has been the perfect instructor for me. Trying to learn guitar as college student, I needed someone who could make learning guitar a fun and relaxing experience that didn't feel like more work. All of the chords, rhythms, and techniques Jon taught me were in the context of a song, which was fun and a great way to motivate me to practice! Five years later, I’m more passionate than ever about the guitar and Jon has been helping me develop my skills in live performance, something I’ve always wanted to do. Jon is a competent teacher who can certainly give you all the fundamentals of guitar. However, more importantly, he makes the learning process enjoyable and gives you the tools to be a musician for life.
I love working with Jon; he's a superb player and an excellent teacher, plus a great guy to boot. He's demonstrably improved my guitar playing, and my musical approach. If you are serious about becoming a better musician, and want genuine critique not congratulatory pandering, Jon's your man.
Jon is a dedicated and very professional instructor. He picks great songs to practise on and knows how to tailor a lesson to one's skill level. Easy going and fun as well. Highly recommended.
Jon is an outstanding teacher. I've been a student of his since 2007. I'm extremely pleased with the progress I've made from being a total beginner to now.
Have been learning guitar with Jon for about a year now. Started off with absolutely no musical ability at all, 1 year in and I've just been playing along with Brown Sugar by the Stones - all down to Jon's lessons.
Jon is a great guitar teacher: really fun, very encouraging, brings a wealth of knowledge to his teaching: all of which makes for really enjoyable and successful lessons. Guitar classes have become something I really look forward to each week. Very happy I have Jon as my teacher and highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning or improving.
