“Working with Jonathan Eifert is truly a joy. He understands the social media world (so I don’t have to!) while being a master at more traditional public relations skills. Within just our first year working together, Jonathan increased our organization’s visibility - setting up our first international press coverage! He is a master at creating the perfect tone in all modes of communication. We rely on him for his intelligence, connections and work ethic. We have never been disappointed.”
- Ellen Bergstone Wasil, Executive Director, Portland Piano International
"I fully recommend Jonathan Eifert to your organization/company without reservation. He worked with the Golandsky Institute over the past five years developing new ways to creatively engage a global community of pianists.
Two important contributions from Jonathan was our streaming service (Golandsky Streaming), which provides online piano instruction resources to thousands of people around the world. He spearheaded and managed this project from start to finish. Secondly, Jonathan was influential in growing attendance by 34% at our Summer Symposium at Princeton University. This was a huge undertaking as people fly in from all over the world to learn.
Through his skills in marketing, PR, communications, and management the Institute achieved these highlights for which we are grateful."
- Edna Golandsky, Founder and Artistic Director, The Golandsky Institute

“Jonathan Eifert brings a wide array of in-depth experience and personal magnetism to his very successful PR concepts. With a piano performance degree and experience with IMG in London, he now combines the sensitivity of a performer with the experience of the industry, and creativity catered to the individual. I personally saw my entire career and public image transformed with his work with branding, web and online presence and design, professional photography with award-winning photographer Kaupo Kikkas from Estonia, CD release parties, and securing a global media partnership for the film series I host, Living the Classical Life. Now Jonathan works with a variety of clients, including the Golandsky Institute at Princeton, and the Cleveland International Piano Competition. It is a pleasure and honor to give my highest recommendation.”

“I started working with Jonathan at a time when I had a website, a Facebook artist page and a Twitter account which had no relation whatsoever between the 3 of them. Jonathan made me think about who I am as an artist and what I want to communicate to the world. That allowed me to completely reinvent my internet presence and develop online platforms that are not only consistent between themselves, but also with who I am as a person and as an artist. Throughout the entire process, Jonathan was always available to talk and attentive to detail, as well as encouraging and enlightening. It was amazing working with him.”
- Ricardo Panela, Baritone
“My NYC cabaret debut wouldn’t have happened without Jonathan Eifert’s expertise and encouragement over the past year. He is a master at stepping back and seeing the long road, then breaking the whole trip into small, achievable steps that will get you where you want to go. He provides a rare combination of creative vision and pragmatism, and takes great — and contagious! — joy in the ride.”
