« Jonathan is a great music teacher with didactic who is teaching me violin and how to read/write sheet music. He is very patient and makes the online class as productive as if he was here. I had previous knowledge on music with the guitar, but being a total beginner on violin, he goes through the basics and I understand it easily even though it is a hard instrument to learn. I heavily recommend him! »

Brazilian professional musician and multi-instrumentalist offering violin lessons in Durham. Get your bow up and be ready to learn how to read sheet music and the most important techniques

Methodology

My method is based on the necessities and aspirations of the pupil. I believe that having a supportive attitude from your tutor is the dream of every student, as well as having a solid and progressive method to follow, therefore why not unite both scenarios?

Experience

I have been working as a professional musician for the last 14 years. I have already participated in recordings, productions and been part of events such as workshops, shows and master classes. I have experience with a considerable variety of instruments, such as guitar, bass, brazilian viola, brazilian cavaco, bandolim (the brazilian mandolin), violin, ukulele (and most other string instruments), the drums, the cajon, as well as other brazilian percussive instruments. I have also studied with the well-known brazilian pianist João Carlos Assis Brasil at Villa Lobos Music School in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for 5 years. It has allowed me to get to know how key instruments work, and now I work with the piano as well.
My last working experience was as a music teacher in a school where I was in constant contact with children from Kindergarten, as well as with teenagers from High School. It has increased my experience as a teacher and as a professional who needs to deal constantly with people.

Jonathan is a great music teacher with didactic who is teaching me violin and how to read/write sheet music. He is very patient and makes the online class as productive as if he was here. I had previous knowledge on music with the guitar, but being a total beginner on violin, he goes through the basics and I understand it easily even though it is a hard instrument to learn.

Jonathan is a great tutor. He has already given me face-to-face piano and guitar lessons when he was in Brazil and I have learned a lot with him. He is very kind, gives you all the attention you need and provides you with great quality supporting material and exercises. I recommend you give his lessons a try. Certainly you won't regret it.
