Jon

Jon has been playing guitar and singing for over 10 years. A native of North Florida, he moved west to follow his dream of performing professionally. In 2012, Jon received his BM in Studio/Jazz Guitar from the University of Southern California. Music has remained his passion and a way to express himself.

Jon has recorded alongside solo artists, jazz groups, church choirs, and bands across the U.S. One notable name includes singer Rozzi Crane of 222 Records.  As a passionate writer, he has joined singer Katie Sims in their band, Her Electric Fur.

The teaching philosophy of Jon centers on the ear. He believes that the essence of learning is how you interpret and express what you hear on the guitar and in lyrics. He enjoys teaching because he understands the importance of the learning experience and making it as fun as possible. At The Royal Music Academy, Jon connects with students who love music and can benefit from its presence in their lives.

Jon teaches guitar and songwriting to students of all ages in the neighborhoods of Pacific Palisades, Downtown Los Angeles, Westwood, Santa Monica, Silverlake, Hancock Park, Echo Park, Bel Air, and more.
