I grew up in Quebec City Canada, where I only spoke French during those growing years. From a very young age, I was always attracted to music and particularly playing drums. My mom has told me that before I could even walk, I was already banging away on whatever I could put my hands on. I would sit down with pots, pans, and spoons and bang away. My parents bought my first “real” drum kit when I was about five years old. It was a Mickey Mouse drum set that they ordered from the Sears catalog. I was ecstatic. Unfortunately, because of the poor quality of the drum, this particular kit only lasted a couple months, but it was on that very drum kit that I gave my first live performance. The concert took place in the basement of my house. This memorable concert included one song, a French version of California dreaming, with me on drums, my brother on guitar and my sister as a singer. The crowd (one uncle and our mom) loved it and saw the potential in what could be a career someday!
My next significant concert was when I was 15 years old. My brother and I put a Beatles tribute band together and did an all Beatles song concert. We were able to convince about 300 of our friends and schoolmates that the $3 dollar ticket would be worth it. During my teenage years, I got really serious about drumming and joined a Drum and Bugle Corp band. I probably learned the most during those 5 years. We had several incredible professional drum teachers that spent countless hours teaching us everything from every single rudiment in the book, drum theory to several techniques on how to play drums. Those years were foundational for me as a drummer.
Fast-forward a couple years and you end up in the glamour rock days: the 80’s. It was a time where it was irrelevant if you knew how to play an instrument well, but the main thing that mattered had to do with the “hairdo” that would sit on top of your head. Still, it was during those years that I started to play regularly. I had a couple different bands and we played around quite a bit as well as spend a lot of time writing our own music. Through it all, even the glamour rock days provided an opportunity for me to grow as a drummer and overall musician. In 1986 we founded our own original rock band. We started writing our own music and found a name that would stick to us like glue once we moved to the US. Our band name was “One Way” and we did eventually to the US in order to pursue our dream.
One Way only lasted a couple years and in 1991, my brother and I started another band. This one lasted for almost 20 years. The Kry was born as we continued writing songs & playing around Albuquerque New Mexico where we had moved in 1988. In 1992, we launched our first album “I’ll find You There” with Asaph Records in Costa Mesa California. My brother and I became Christians while living in Albuquerque and so everything we wrote had to do with our beliefs as Christians.
Throughout the years, The Kry released ten albums with sales of over half a million records. We toured extensively from 1992 through 2002 in over 25 countries as well as numerous times in the US.
In 2010 I stopped playing music on a professional lever for a living in order to travel less and be with my children more. I am still involved with music writing as well as teaching. I did not get a music degree but was trained professionally during my teenage years by different professional drummers with private lessons.
I teach music to school aged children from 5 years old to more advance students of all ages. I track their personal progress, collaborate with parents, and work with students to prepare for school band, contests, and special concerts. I also specialize in advanced development for already established drummers. No matter what, it is always a blast to be able to pour out to other aspiring and younger drummers what I have learn from the many years of playing and touring.

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.

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.
