About Me

Hello Parents and Students,

I have been teaching and writing music professionally for ten years. My first introduction to music was just like some of you, starting in high school where I had a great teacher that encouraged me to play. This helped me so much, and I wouldn't where I am at if it weren't for his help and positive encouragement. Now I try to encourage all of my students the same way.

After high school I went on and played percussion with various Orchestras such as the "‚œInland Valley Symphony Orchestra" and "Mt. San Jacinto Symphony Orchestra."

I have also been involved in the DCI (Drum Corps International) and Drumline community. I toured for four years and experienced performing with groups such as Yamato Drum and Bugle Corps 2002-2005, Black Knights 2006, and RCC marching and winter percussion under the direction of Scott Johnson & Jeff Lee in 2002, and Sean Vega & Jim Wunderlich in 2003.

During my college years I started playing Jazz Vibraphone in my school'™s top big-band. This allowed me the opportunity to play Jazz Piano which I have performed and still study until this day. As a result, Jazz has now become one of my biggest passions.

As a Professional International Composer, I have had the privilege of writing and arranging for many marching bands, wind ensembles, and indoor percussion ensembles, including orchestrations, recordings and sequencing projects for media, and musical theatre in the United States and Japan.

I am also currently an adjudicator for the Southern California Band and Orchestra Association (SCSBOA) and a member of the Vic-Firth Education Team.

I hope that this gives you a close and personal Idea of where I come from and hope that I can help you get the most out of your experience with music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that in order for you to get the most out of our lessons it takes both, the Teacher'™s and Student'™s understanding and attention from both ends. sometimes giving all of the information in the world won'™t help if one there is no engagement and two if me as a teacher don't make sure that you understand. So I like to make sure to explain things in more than one way to make sure the student understands the concepts and what to practice.

I like to keep a relaxed atmosphere, but also making sure that there is a high level of professionalism and expectation of attentiveness from the student.

Of course, I also understand that this all depends on the age of the student, and as we meet and get to see what it is that you want to focus on and I will make sure to concentrate on that and help you reach your goals!

About Me

Hello there, my name is Jason H. and I am here to give quality lessons to eager people. I have 22 years of hands on experience that I can offer my students and I am more than happy to do so. I have spanned across the entire musical spectrum regarding styles and I have been in front and behind the scenes of the music industry. I am also a husband and a father, so I can relate to boys, girls, young and old! I have been playing drums since I was 8 years old, recording since I was 16 and running a sound production company since I was 22. Other interests of mine are History, Hockey, Baseball, (I still play both when I have time) Hiking, Bike riding, Videography, Teaching and Parenting.

I started playing gigs at 14 with my first serious band “Imperial Dub” featuring the current singer and guitarist of “Inhale” and we played all over So Cal for a few summers. At 18 I went to college and devoted 60 units to music, audio and video production. From 18-22 I learned about all kinds of music that I had never given a chance to hear or play and I absorbed every bit of it. I rented a studio at the Life arts Center and played/recorded music till the wee hours and grew exponentially. At 23 I had went to Jamaica and took a drummers job by accident, I ended up playing 4 nights while on vacation. When I got back to the states, I ended up starting a Bob Marley cover band, one night I man approached me about being in a backing band for Jamaican singer and I agreed. Since then I have backed Andrew Beez , Rankin Joe and various others for periods of time. During the same time I was approached to start giving lessons and the momentum built up with my happy students, I was teaching only in home then. I also was blessed to be a part of a rhythm section named “Peanut Butter and Jam”, this is my favorite project I have been a part of because it is always fresh and changing. Later I filled in for “Ready for Vegas” for one year before the band went on Hiatus and I am working on new stuff with the Guitarist and Bass player. I have filled in for "Inhale" recently and catch myself occasionally playing a Jazz/Funk gig here and there. I have my degree in history/law at UC Riverside, I actively work in the Professional Audio and Video field as a Director of an Auditorium and raise my children during the day.

About Me

I am primarily a composer, guitarist, tenor, pianist and percussionist and I love sharing what I have learned with others and watching my students develop and grow. My goal is to teach my students until they are better than me, so I hold no secrets, tricks or techniques back and I devote my time and energy to help others become the best musicians, artists and people they can be.I have a BA in music composition and a BA in music history, both from California State University, San Bernardino. I play the guitar, bass, piano, drums, orchestral percussion, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, recorder, harmonica and didgeridoo with varying levels of proficiency and have experience in music theory, songwriting, recording, MIDI, arranging, singing (contemporary, broadway and opera), and acting/performing. I have performed in The United States, Austria, Spain, Australia and New Zealand and have 13 years of experience, development, mistakes and successes to offer my students. I love learning new things and have been teaching as a profession since 2007. I am also First Aid & CPR certified, Live Scan fingerprinted, FBI background checked, Safe Environment trained and a Child Abuse Mandated Reporter.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not use a set curriculum. I prefer to discuss goals and music with my students and their parents to determine what genres, styles and techniques they are most interested in. I then use techniques I have gained through experience along with songs and classical exercises to develop strong technique, a developed ear and the ability to read music. I do expect students to be disciplined, practice regularly, and be prepared for lessons, enabling them to expect the same from me. Whether a student wants to be a classical virtuosi or learn how to play a song they heard on the radio, I will keep the lessons fun and interesting for anyone willing to practice and learn, and I will always to my best to cater to the student's individual needs and goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide all copies of music, handouts, exercises, etc. Students are expected (when applicable) to have an instrument in good, working condition.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I form all of my lessons around being able to learn, memorize and play songs, read written musical notation (along with sight-reading & technical exercises), and improvisation (based on scales and exercises).

For guitar and it's relatives (bass, mandolin, ukulele, banjo) I can teach any style or genre of music, including modern tapping techniques, and I also teach TAB notation.

I teach both classical and popular piano, usually combining classical sight reading exercises while learning both classical and popular repertoire.

I have experience acting and singing on stage in both non-musical and musical productions, as well as five years of classical vocal experience singing in high school and collegiate ensembles. Being in these environments has equipped me with the tools and exercises to be able to teach everything from basic singing to fundamentals in broadway and opera.

I also have a small studio in my home where I write and record, providing me with the opportunity to also teach recording, songwriting and music theory.

About Me

At the early age of twelve I began beginner guitar lessons through a privately owned guitar shop near my home in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. By fifteen I expanded my guitar know-how through lessons with virtuosic guitarist Trey Alexander. These lessons with Trey introduced me to playing blues, rock, jazz, and metal styles of guitar. Around seventeen years old I began classical guitar studies with Skip Redding and piano lessons with Michael Schmaldienst through Penn Manor High School. I also sang in the high school choir and played guitar in the jazz band. To prepare for musical studies in college I began advanced theory and composition lessons with Dr. Simon Andrews at the Pennsylvania Academy of Music. I decided to stay near home for college and I was admitted to Millersville University for a B.A. Music Performance degree with a concentration on classical guitar.

I continued to sing, play piano, write songs, learn drums, bass guitar, banjo, mandolin, and further my musical theory studies. At one point, I was in two local rock bands, singing in choir, assisting my guitar professor Marcia Englar with guitar ensemble, and working on my solo classical guitar repertoire. Diversity in music has always been important to me and I pride myself on knowing a wide range of guitar and other musical performance practices.

After I earned my undergrad in Music Performance from Millersville University I auditioned at the University of Redlands here in Redlands, CA. By August of 2012 I was packing my car with all of my guitars and hitting the road for Southern California. My experience with music at the University of Redlands has has been phenomenal. I take lessons with Stuart Green and Bob Bozonelos, assist undergrad students in guitar, music theory, and history, and sing in the University choir. I love where I live, I love music, and I want to share my knowledge and experience with the world.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal as a guitar instructor is to teach YOU what YOU want to learn. Whether you want to lean chords and play guitar at church or learn jazz tunes and play in a jazz band. I can teach electric guitar, acoustic guitar, but my classical guitar skill is very advanced. The more specific your musical needs the better! I also have great experience with kids and teaching beginners if the students desire with the instrument are not specific yet.

I am very much a laid back guy, but I believe in doing homework and CONSISTENT practice. This does NOT mean a demanding "six hours a day" practice routine but rather a very focused brief practice period 4-6 days a week. Every student is different and I want everyone to have fun and enjoy the best instrument in the world. If the student has fun and keeps focused I firmly believe in noticeable improvement almost immediately!

With respect to guitar I have multiple books and literature in my library students may use. These guitar books cover beginner to advanced techniques. When it comes to bass guitar, banjo, or drums I mostly teach off book but I am more than able to introduce literature on these instruments as well.

I live, breath, and think music all day everyday and it would be my utmost honor to share my musical skills with you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Two classical guitars, one acoustic guitar, one electric guitar, one guitar amp, one electric bass, one electric bass amp, one ukulele, one mandolin, one banjo.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide the instrument. I can provide everything else except for a drumset.

*** Specialties ***
Classical guitar, folk guitar, songwriting, music history.
