“Jonathan is bright and inquisitive and has a passionate interest in all things musical. Because of these attributes, his development as a pianist has proceeded at a rapid and impressive pace. He is going to be a great player one day, and that is not something I would ever say just to be kind.”-Bill Carrothers

“Although his intellectual prowess and musical gifts set him apart, Jonathan is one of the most humble students I know. I personally don’t think he has any idea how good he is. Monster musician, thoughtful collaborator, deep thinker, Jonathan has it all.” -Brian Pertl, Dean of Lawrence University Conservatory
