Overview

I have played Clarinet for 15 years, and taught for 2. Currently I am pursuing a Bachelors of Music in Performance at California State University-Long Beach. My previous instructors include Mr. Paul Bambach at the University of California-Santa Barbara, Ms. Amanda Walker from UC-Irvine, and Dr. David Lopez at Cerritos College. Currently I study with Dr. Michael Grego at CSULB.

First and most importantly, my goal is to keep music FUN while still accomplishing individual goals.

Over the years of my own private instruction, I have been taught in manners which both help foster self analysis within the student, and maintain some of the standard development of technique and control; all while making the experience enjoyable and fun to continue the growth of appreciation for this craft. This is a method I try to implement when teaching clarinet, or music theory to a student, as I feel it is the most effective.

Jason is one of the best when it comes to clarinet instruction. His knowledge of the clarinet and of music is exceptional, as well as practice technique. I highly recommend him to anyone who has the desire to learn and become better as a musician of clarinet.
