LESSONS

My Method:

 

I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs. I have a solid method that has been developed over the past fifteen years which includes technique, chord exercises, reading and theory. As well, there is a strong emphasis on learning songs, especially songs the student likes. I also work on improvisation, songwriting and recording.  In addition, I use Rocksmith as a tool to add another dimension to my lessons.


Private and semi-private guitar, bass and ukulele lessons are available.

 

I am located in Montreal but I also teach online using Skype/FaceTime.

My Focus:

 

When I started playing music, the first thing I wanted to do was play with other people and start a band. For me, practicing alone at home was just a means to an end. The real fun began when I played with others. I want my students to experience this and so I have made it the main focus of my teaching. All my students, whether they are 7 or 70, are given the opportunity each year to play in a band and perform live on stage at my end of year student show. This year will be my 19th Live From The Garage event.

For tips on starting a band and playing guitar or bass, check out Anatomy Of A Rock Band - a short manual I wrote to help students get started. Click on the link to download a .pdf copy.

I strongly suggest Jon, He sparked my love for music and teaches with 

 

A VERY DEDICATED AND CALM APPROACH."

"

I don't think the experience with Jon can compare to any other instructor or school.

 

I DIDN'T JUST LEARN HOW TO PLAY GUITAR BETTER, I BECAME INVOLVED IN BANDS, PLAYED IN SHOWS, WROTE AND RECORDED MY OWN SONGS,

 

and to this day still collaborate with Jon on multiple projects."
