    “Jon is a truly inspiring teacher; watch him give a lesson, and you’ll want to play bass. Jon finds what you need and knows how to help you get it. The improvement my son has made since studying with Jon is amazing.”
    Eric Nebbia

    From Henry D’Allacco, bass student:
    I’ve been studying with Jon for a few months now and I can’t say enough good things. First off, he is a phenomenal bass player and songwriter, but more importantly, he is also an excellent teacher. His vast knowledge of musical construction makes every lesson an exciting experience. Jon has helped me improve my playing and get me to the next level. Simply put, Jon is awesome! If you want to start playing bass, or if you’ve been playing for a while and want to learn more, Jon will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need.
