Jonathan first got involved with music when he was 5 years old, starting on piano. After several years of piano, he developed a stronger interest in percussion. As of now, he has been playing percussion for the past 15 years.
He played in his high school drumline for 4 years and was captain of the team for 2 years. He also played in the jazz ensemble all 4 years. Soon, he moved on to play in the big band at Cabrillo College and quickly began gigging professionally, while in school.
Jon currently plays in a Latin dance band that plays Cumbia music, a couple wedding/corporate bands that play all sorts of popular music from all eras, funk groups, jazz bands, rock bands- you name it!
Jon has played multiple contracted "residency" gigs in different restaurants and venues as well as filled in for bands whose drummer could not make the performance.
When he is not teaching, he's playing!
Jon has been teaching students for the last 10 years and enjoys sharing everything he has learned to those interested. He teaches rudiments, techniques, groove styles, reading music/drum charts, and general tricks of the trade! He can also teach proper maintenance as well as drum tuning.
