I have an extensive professional background of 20+ years in healthcare administration. I have a bachelors degree in engineering from Colorado a School of Mines and a Masters in Business from CU Denver. While having no formal music education, I was coached by my mother, Marilyn Knox, an experienced performer and music educator.

I have been a featured vocal soloist with the John Philip Sousa Band of Colorado where he played clarinet as well as the Mile High Freedom Swing band as a featured vocal soloist and on keyboards. I have sung with Opera Fort Collins, the Estes Park Oratorio Society as a featured soloist, the Littleton Chorale, the Cherry Creek Chorale, the Colorado Chorale, and Kantorei.

J Ronald is great. He is very patient with my kids and has a great way to teach them piano and keep them motivated about learning. He has been teaching them for a month now and they have learned a lot about piano and they are playing songs on the piano. I would definitely recommend him.
