About Jon A.

I have been playing guitar since the age of 9. I have studied Classical, and Jazz at CCM's Prep Dept. in middle school and throughout high school as well as rock, folk, country etc. with other local teachers. I started teaching lessons at the age of 18 in local music stores and have never stopped. While doing this I attended The College of Mount St. Joseph where I studied Classical and Jazz guitar as well as Music Ed. In addition to my 22 years of private lesson experience, I have 2 years of classroom experience teaching general music in elementary schools. I believe it is my years as a student and instructor that enable me to be an effective teacher, having had learned what worked for me as a student, and what has shown to work as a teacher. *** Lesson Details *** I cater my lesson to the individual. I like for students to have a structured practice routine and working knowledge of music and their instrument, but it has to be fun. I have students who learn Classical, rock, and Jazz. Each lesson is different. Some people just want to be able to play their favorite songs by a camp fire, and others want to go on to perform at Carnegie Hall. I enjoy teaching both lessons and put forth the same enthusiasm for each one. You get out of the guitar or bass what you put into it in terms of learning and practicing. The level of achievement is up to you, I will help guide you to meet your goals regardless of how large or small they are. *** Studio Equipment *** Spare music room: guitars, amps, bass; computer with recording software, ProTools seating for parents *** Travel Equipment *** I have all the equipment necessary. I would like the student to have an instrument, but if not I can provide one for the lesson. *** Specialties *** I'm really pretty versatile. Over 18 years of teaching anywhere from 80 to 100 students a week will do that.

My first lesson was heavy on intro and establishing a practice routine consisting mainly of exercises. This traditional method is what I grew up with and I'm looking forward to learning with Jon.
