WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT US
I have had the pleasure of having an amazingly talented instructor for over a year and a half. I went from only knowing classical to having fun learning lessons with Jonny exploring jazz, rock, swing, ragtime, and freestyle. I absolutely love what I have learned from Jonny you will too!
Jonny May has been the best piano teacher I have ever had. His teaching techniques are very unique and very helpful. He has taught me multiple types of styles ranging from ragtime to blues. His years of success playing the piano and talent have inspired me to practice hard and become a great pianist. I have learned more and become a better player in the past 10 months with Jonny, than the years of lessons I have taken with other teachers.
Jonny May is a fantastic teacher. He has a unique and energetic way of teaching that brings the music to life. From jazz, ragtime, and blues, Jonny has taught me so many new things about music. He encourages me to go outside of my comfort zone and try new things with music as well. I have learned so much from him.
Jonathan is a great teacher. Within a year of lessons I’ve learned so much about the world of jazz piano. I’ve played piano for 10 years and he can teach and explain like no other teacher I’ve had.
I recently started leading my church music group and playing the piano. Although I took 9 years of classical piano lessons as a child, I started taking lessons with Jonny because I wanted some tips to interpret and embellish the piano sheet music. From day 1, I knew that Jonny was a gifted teacher. At our lessons, he shows me different ways to play the chords on the sheet music, and helps me analyze the quality of the arrangements. He has also taught me how to use Sibelius music notation software – I can now write music for my choir. Jonny is always patient and flexible – willing to teach whatever I want to learn. He knows his craft both as a superior piano player and as a prolific music composer. He’s also a really cool person, encouraging me on my musical journey. I heartily recommend Jonny May for anyone who wants to improve their piano skills in a variety of musical genres.
Jonny truly takes his passion about music and teaches and coaches his passion to his students. What is great about his approach is he really works with you on your level. As an adult I started taking lessons from Jonny because I had a passion to play piano. I found in my search that many piano teachers do not like taking adults as students, however, Jonny was right there to take me on. He is always professional, encouraging, and patient during our lessons. If I need additional coaching, he takes the time to show me and takes the time to make sure I understand. I can’t express what great joy I am having in learning to play the piano, and learn all about the music and theory with Jonny. I believe not only my passion to learn, but Jonny’s passion to teach is what is making me move forward in my endeavor.
Jonny is a skilled pianist who has an extensive knowledge of music theory and is well versed in a number of musical styles, from Jazz to Blues to Pop. He is easy to work with and his flexible teaching style works well for me. My playing ability has increased considerably over the time I have been studying with him.
You know the difference between a slide and a water slide? That’s the sort of difference that I’ve experienced playing piano after learning from and interacting with Jonny – it’s so much more fun and carefree and full of genuine enjoyment while creating notes that slip more elegantly from one to another. Thanks Jonny – you’re awesome.
I have been playing the piano for about 20 years and had only learnt classical music. In my mid 20s I lost the motivation to practice the piano completely as I struggled to find a good teacher to help me learn other music genres and styles.
Then I cam across Jonny’s YouTube videos and was immediately inspired; I signed up straight away to get the sheet music bundle and had a focus to learn this material. The video courses are excellent which clearly break down how to play a specific tune with Jonny explaining the course in simple English.
Jonny’s videos and courses have given me the motivation and enthusiasm to practice and enjoy music.
