The tuition I received from Emil Jonason enabled me to undergo professional development in an environment where I would be encouraged to experiment and develop new approaches in my playing. Emil’s teaching style is very friendly and holistic based, focused on developing artistry first and foremost, and then uses an extreme technical facility to reach these goals.
