    Jon is a very pleasant guy. Smart as a whip, when it comes to a beginner. And in only half of an hour, learned a ton. Thanks Jon !

    Jon's lessons are amazing! Learning guitar is a very daunting task but he makes everything less intimidating. He knows so much and is a very clear, easy to understand teacher!"
