A foundation of good technique is essential in musical development, whether it be in vocal or instrumental music. My own musical education began at the early age of 4, giving more than 3 decades of music-making experience to draw from. I have been a private music instructor for over 10 years, and enjoy teaching students of all ages and abilities, helping them to set goals and achieve them.
Below are testimonials by several of my former students:
“Lessons with Jon were very educational, but more importantly his passion for music inspired me to strive to be the best musician I could be. Singing should be fun! Jon’s way of doing things balances fun , engaging music with technique and quality musicianship.” —– Paul Georgeson, BA in Music with a specialty in Music and Worship Arts, Trinity Lutheran College, 2016
“Taking voice lessons from Jon was one if the best decisions I ever made. From the beginning, he provided a warm and safe environment where I always felt as though I could be myself and just SING! He always kept lessons fun while still keeping it productive. His musical background and knowledge of classical, musical theatre, jazz, and rock allowed me to explore many different of genres of music which helped build my own musical foundation.” ——- Jeff Gordon, BM in Music, Choral Conducting, Central Washington University, 2015
