My repertoire consists of many genres of music; however, it can be tailored to meet your specific need. I provide a wonderful music experience for your event.
Jonathan was our violinist for my engagement proposal. His personality and service were absolutely incredible. We had planned on having him play outside, but there was rain in the forecast. Jonathan was flexible with the location and it went off perfectly. His music truly made the moment and we'll always remember it. Definitely book Jonathan, I know I will for future events!
Wow! Jonathan was flawless and what beautiful music. He's also very personable and dressed beautifully. Highly recommended. Made the wedding ceremony perfect
Great crowd entertainer. We truly enjoyed having him for our event. It made all the difference.
Jonathan made our day so beautiful and special. He is beyond professional and talented. Hiring him and having him part of our wedding was the best decision and one we will make again for our next event. Thank you!
Jonathan was the perfect addition to our ceremony! He played all of the songs we wanted to hear and performed them beautifully. Book him for your event, you won't be sorry! :)
Jonathan was amazing! On time, and played great music for our ceremony. We also appreciated his communication!
Absolutely wonderful! We will have him back again soon!
You were a fabulous addition to our wedding!
Thank you for your professionalism and, of course, beautiful music!
We truly appreciate your coming from Sedona to perform at our special day in Phoenix!

Jonathan was great -- learned the songs I requested for our engagement in less than 48 hours and is an amazingly talented musician. He was the perfect addition to our engagement. Highly recommended.
Jonathan is a great guy and exceptional violinist. He has a great personality and it felt like he was a part of the family. He helped make the engagement perfect! Can't wait to have him at the wedding. :-)
Jonathan added the perfect touch to our art show and auction. He played a variety of music that fit our event and everyone loved him. We will be looking to use him more for future events.
Jonathan dispelled each of my worries about having hired him for my mother-in-law’s birthday party at a local restaurant. He was on time, very pleasant, played absolutely beautifully, and played the songs I’d requested. The 30 guests each made a point of telling me how much they enjoyed his playing. The volume was perfect for the event, though Jonathan told me he could adjust the volume either way. My husband later said, “I don’t know how you found this guy, but I think he was the highlight of the party.”
I would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan Levingston.
How wonderful Jonathan is! I hired him to play a house party last year, a Christmas Gift for my roommates. A Dear Heart, Talented and Entertaining! Playing Classical, Jazz, Original works, and taking requests.
I see Jonathan when he performs locally and his show is always a wonderful musical experience!
Thank you Jonathan!
Jonathan has performed at after parties for the Prescott Film Festival for the past two years. He is a very professional and talented artist that creates an elegant atmosphere that is both entertaining and mesmerizing. As a non profit organization, Jonathan gave us a very reasonable price and was even willing to travel all the way to Prescott to perform. I look forward to having him back next year!
I have heard Jonathan on several occasions and his musical expertise never ceases to amaze me. He is a true performer, down-to-earth and so talented. I would highly recommend him for any event.
Our wedding ceremony was made complete with Jonathan's talent, expertise, and reliability. He learned difficult musical pieces such as songs from Enya and Yanni. He played an extra two hours and adjusted to last minute requests including an improvisation with piano that was perfect during our sand ceremony. We recommend Jonathan for the most memorable events. Thank you

What to Expect
Expect to hear things on a violin that you don't necessarily associate with a violin. Very original approach and experienced subtleties make for a polished performance. Outside of the obvious, I can perform in and out of most genres giving me variety and flexibility to my listeners.
