Paul Rolinski (Guitarist, Songwriter, Bandleader) – Covington, LA

-”Jonathan (JT) is a great producer and engineer. He is highly committed to our project and worked very hard to make us sound our best.”

David J. Gambino (Asst. Band Director / Director of Jazz Studies, Performer and Arranger with Tyler Kinchen & the Right Pieces) – Mandeville, LA

- “Incredible! Our time at JT Studios was truly remarkable. Jonathan is an incredible musician and sound engineer. Everything was so professional but still very personal! This man knows his stuff! He taught me so much more than I already know. I’m a teacher, I love to learn. It was so refreshing having such an intellectual experience in the studio. Not only did I add to my studio knowledge, but to my musical knowledge and knowledge of my own abilities. JT is super willing to help (you should listen to everything that comes out of his mouth), but he respects the artists vision. I couldn’t ask for a better experience.  I cannot wait to work with him again!”

Johnny Schmelling (Singer, Songwriter) – Mandeville, LA

-“JT has all the skills needed to turn anyone into a better musician or singer.  His wealth of knowledge and experience will shine through on any recording project.”

Kurt Roberts (Musical Equipment Rep., Guitarist, Songwriter, Bandleader) – Metairie, LA

-“JT is highly experienced and always brings a professionalism to all of his work. Being so detail oriented, he works to create an amazing sound from start to finish and takes a tremendous amount of pride in anything he touches. He doesn’t do things half-way and always give constructive criticism to help create a better final product.”

Tyler Kinchen (Singer, Songwriter, Keyboard Player & Bandleader of Tyler Kinchen & the Right Pieces) – Ponchatoula, LA

- “Jonathan Treeby and JT Studios are an amazing combination of character and setting for music. It is my highest  recommendation for any honest artist planning to create a great project. JT and JT Studios has moved itself to the front line  of Louisiana music, and we will certainly see JT and his studio grow by and by to be the vehicle for many more artists on all  levels.  My band and I received the highest level of guidance and production we could imagine.  The studio’s facilities, equipment, and  organization are great; the studio’s vibe keeps an untroubled energy. JT has an extremely keen understanding of music, backed  by wisdom and interest. I am extremely satisfied with my project at JT Studios, and I am excited to bring my next project to  Jonathan and the studio.”

Jan Dicks – Mother of Anna, Our Student – Mandeville, LA

- “My 17 year old daughter, Anna, has taken two sound production classes at JT Studios, and she is currently taking voice lessons.  It’s hard to describe just how much she has enjoyed and benefited from these classes and from her relationship with JT.

The studio itself is so impressive.  Who would have guessed that a state of the art sound production studio like this could be found in Mandeville!  As a producer, JT is an artist who knows his craft inside and out.  He is personable, approachable, and passionate about his work.  Students are immediately drawn into his enthusiastic love of music and of the culture and history that surround it.  He is able to effortlessly instruct and direct students to artists and pieces that will resonate with their own particular interests and style.  It is one thing to teach technique and skills but it is something quite unique to be able to energize a pupil and foster in them a love for the creative process.  That happens in this studio.”

Anna Dicks – Student – Mandeville, LA

- “Working with JT has helped me personally, not just with vocal skills, but by giving me confidence in my voice.  This has, in turn, given me courage to get up and put myself out there when opportunities presented themselves.

I have learned so much from production class at the studio; things like microphones, (and other studio equipment), … using the tools of the trade. The opportunity that I had to work with a team of students recording a song was nothing short of exhilarating!  Then, hearing the professional quality of the finished piece and knowing that it was me singing, was totally amazing.”
