Excellent band!! Very classy and professional. On time and even took some requests of mine they weren’t familiar with and learned them!! Everyone had a wonderful time and complimented me profusely on the quality of the band. They really made my day a success!!

We invited Jonathan to play the Military Trumpet #4 and to coordinate with a pianist, that he had never met, to play The Prince of Denmark’s March. Jonathan did an amazing job. He improvised the Military Trumpet to start things off. It was VERY impressive and sounded better than we could have ever imagined having chosen it from youtube videos. And, after only rehearsing for an hour or so, he and the pianist performed the March in beautiful fashion. We received many comments of the “trumpet player.” We would certainly recommend Jonathan. He certainly made a difference in our ceremony.
Great in every way!

Sound Entertainment was everything we could have hoped for and more. They played standards, improvised with our musical friends, accompanied the other entertainers, and provided for truly memorable spotlight dances. I don’t think I can recommend them more than I do.
The Music Made the Ceremony So Special!

The best music for a wedding! Not only do they put together an outstanding band for wedding receptions, but they have an amazing trumpet player for the wedding ceremony. You should have seen the look on everyone’s faces when the pre-recorded music ended and the trumpet rang out for my bridal entrance. The quality of the live trumpet by Jonathan Greenberg was so clear and so intense and so beautiful that everyone really seemed to “wake up” from sound, which completely filled the large church. Live music just feels so different from recorded music. The energy was suddenly electric. I felt like a princess being heralded! So many people complimented us about how the unexpected live trumpet music took their breath away and focused them on my entrance for my walk down the aisle. It was perfect. Also, Jonathan somehow was able to time it so his trumpet voluntary came to an end just as I reached the altar, even though it took us a lot longer than in rehearsal. After that magical walk down the aisle, they played several more times during the ceremony, including beautiful songs on violin and piano. It was blissful. I did not know at the time what a special contribution they would make to the ceremony. Sound Entertainment Events is so much more than a wedding reception band. We are over the moon with how good it was and how much more special it made our special day.

Lesson 1 – we are off and running with both of us on the same page. I just need to do my part; practice.

Jazmin loved her lesson with Jonathon, and I am so glad he recognizes her talent and can move her along at the appropriate speed.

Jonathan is an excellent teacher and very enjoyable to be with. The environment is positive, instructional and after a few lessons has been rewarding and productive. I look forward to continuing weekly songwriting sessions in his comfortable home.

Jonathan is a great teacher! He is very knowledgeable and had taught me more than I ever expected to learn in such a short time. It is such an honor to learn from him!

Jonathan is very informative, I like the way he explains everything in detail. This is my first time singing and Jonathan makes me feel comfortable to sing out loud.

He is GREAT at making me understand theory, which I never have. He’s also exciting and challenging in learning how to look at music and anticipate/understand where it’s going versus my habit of only looking one note ahead at a time. I wish he was a little more interested in teaching classical music, but I also understand that the new stuff I am learning from him will greatly improve my playing of that.

Jonathan has extraordinary knowledge of music and teaching technique. He has patience and understanding which is both helpful and encouraging. It is a pleasure and an honor working with him.

Jonathan has an exceptional background in music theory, which has been implemented well throughout my daughter’s lessons. He is positive and encouraging as her vocal abilities rapidly expand. Jonathan has gone above and beyond measures I expected. He is an excellent vocal instructor!

Excellent tutor. Having Jonathan as my tutor has been very satisfying. He is a talented musician and an excellent teacher. He is skilled at patiently communicating difficult concepts to those new to music. He made me feel more confident about my strong points while gradually moving me out of my comfort zone. In this way, I learned a great deal more than expected. I left the sessions with a richer understanding and appreciation of chord progressions, tonality, interpretation. I would highly recommend Jonathan to anyone.

Jonathan is an excellent piano teacher. Jonathan has been teaching piano to my adolescent son for the past several years. He is highly knowledgeable about music as well as a talented musician; he brings much more to his lessons than the typical teacher. In addition, he always meets my son where he is in terms of interests, preferences and predilections – he has kept my son moving forward with his musical pursuits where others have failed! Lastly, he is a warm, kind person as well as flexible and understanding. I would recommend him to anyone!

My hasband and I are both near tone deaf, and we wanted our son to get music lessons. Jonathan has been working with our now 6 year old for the past year and the progress that he has made is unbelievable! He has a tremendous amount of patience and can relate to a child as well as he can to the parents. Our son truly enjoys his lessons and I believe the caliber of the teacher has a lot to do with developing this interest.
K. Barber, Mar 6, 2014
Awesome! This instructor worked with my son on the piano. He made it “fun” for my child by working on music my son enjoyed. He flourished under the instructor’s tutelage and loves playing the piano. He quit the lessons only because he wants to learn how to play guitar!

Very good. Good knowledge about music and how to inspire students to learn.

Jonathan is a professional! He is very knowledgeable and provides great insight to helping me learn how to play Jazz.
He is always helpful should I need to analyze a chart for the church band I play with. Excellent Teacher!!

Jonathan is in the highest level of musicians. He has all the skillls at the highest level – rhythm, pitch, memory, technique, repertoire, knowledge, an amazing sight-reader and/or improviser, and two more qualities often not associated gifed artists- he is kind and humble. I would HIGHLY recommend him as a teacher of piano, trumpet, theory, ear-training, and composition.

A Wonderful Music Teacher! My son started to learn piano when he was almost five. He also started to learn cello about 2 years ago.He was doing pretty well on both instruments. But, about year ago, he was getting frustrate when he was taking lesson. He didn’t want to practice at home too. I thought he needed to have a higher lever guy teacher to guide him. Fortunately I found Mr. Greenberg. The first lesson was great! My son loved him, loved the way he teaches. Every week, he is more than happy to go to the lesson. Jonathan teaches him piano and cello. Every lesson is about 90 minutes, but my ten year old told me that it doesn’t seem long at all. Mr. Greenberg is very talented on music, he plays a lot of different instruments, that’s really inspiring my son. Less than a year he seems to have grown a lot on music. I always believe that a good teacher can keep the student interested in learning. Mr. Greenberg is a wonderful music teacher for anyone interested in learning music.

So glad to have Jonathan as my teacher. I am a busy professional in my 50s that wanted to learn how to play the electric bass. After searching the web for in home lessons I found Jonathan Greenberg.
Jonathan is an absolute professional with the ability to quickly connect with a student at their level. I have already learned an amazing amount in 4 weeks and have confidence that Jonathan will have me playing at a high level in a very short time period. He gives me “homework” and he follows up to determine if I am staying with it. A great mannerism and teaching style make Jonathan a teacher well worth asking for.
