About Jonathan

Jonathan grew up in the Poconos and started playing guitar at 11 after falling in love with blues and Jazz music. Jonathan quickly realized music and the education of music was going to be his path but didn’t discover Classical Guitar until around 17. Classical Guitar immediately made an impression on him because it provided the freedom to use the guitar as a solo instrument. After being introduced to it he decided to pursue the study of the instrument at Bloomsburg University with Dr. Matthew Slotkin where he earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees, one in Guitar Performance and the other in Music Education.  Along the way, he has taken part in Master Classes with notable figures in the field such as Thomas Viloteau, Anthony Lalena, the Newman & Oltman Duo, Kahlil Sarikey, and Evan Drummond. 

Jonathan has been admitted to the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where he will further his studies with David Tanenbaum and earn a Master of Music degree. Jonathan has been teaching guitar to all ages and ability levels since 2018.
