Jonathan Patajo was born in Manila, Philippines. Beginning at the young age of 4, he was exposed to many different types of music, including groups such as the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Glen Miller Orchestra, Xavier Cugat and Duke Ellington. At age 15, Jonathan picked up the drumsticks for the first time and also received his first drum set as a gift from an owner of a club. He started intensely practicing the drums, getting together with friends to form a group called Cold Heat. The band, whose influences included Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, and Jeff Beck, wrote, performed, and recorded some original compositions and made several appearances on daytime TV and public radio. 

Jonathan earned his Bachelor of Music degree at the prestigious University of the Philippines College of Music, majoring in percussion with a minor in piano.  During his undergraduate studies, Mr. Patajo played with the UP jazz ensemble as well as the Manila Symphony Orchestra as a drummer and percussionist. He performed with the Rage Band, well-known as the top band in the Philippines. He also had the opportunity to perform with Martin Nievera at a special collaborative event in front of an audience of over 30,000, and has played with Lea Salonga and the famous pop singer Gino Padilla as well as the Romy Posadas jazz group.

Mr. Patajo teaches piano and drums to students of all ages and skill levels, and also offers guitar lessons to students at the beginner level.
