Drum Set, Vibraphone, Marimba, and Auxiliary/ Hand Percussionist.
Graduated with his BM in Percussion Performance at the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music
Endorsed Artist with Saluda Cymbals

Since Jonathan graduated from the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music in 2012, he has been working as a full time Musician.  Pushing the limits of versatility and symmetry, he has worked with professional music groups all over the nation ranging from Traditional Jazz,  Progressive Jazz, Bebop, Latin, Latin Jazz, Samba, Steel Drum, Reggae, Bluegrass, Country, Traditional Celtic, Progressive Celtic, Classic Rock, Progressive Rock and several Musicals. Bands such as Luis Munoz Band (winner of Latin Jazz album of the year in 2004) and Alien Ant Farm, to name a couple. Currently, he performs in his own band playing drum set for large corporate events and weddings.  Also, is the percussionist performing on his ground breaking hybrid drum set up in the Award winning Celtic band Sligo Rags, who regularly play at Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney.

In addition to performing full time, Jonathan teaches private lessons in which he incorporates his teaching methods used to bridge the gap between “drummers” and musicians.  Teaching students from young beginners to professional musicians,  these students learn how to play drum set and how to incorporate hand percussion technique into their playing.  For Jonathan, timing is everything and teaching his students the science of time and sonority is crucial to their development as musicians that play drums. In addition to stick, hand, mallet and brush technique,  learning to incorporate both feet into the students drumming and time keeping is what takes their drumming and creativity to the next level.
