Growing up on the west side of Cleveland, he studied classical piano starting at age five. While in college in St. Augustine, Florida, Jonathan began an intense study of jazz and worked as an in-house solo performer at a popular piano bar. Currently, he can be heard at various Cleveland venues and private events as well as with Cleveland’s Prime Time Big Band.
