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, and Dr. David Lopez at Cerritos College. Currently I study with Dr. Michael Grego at CSULB.

Outside of Cal State Long Beach, I also am an active member of the Los Angeles Clarinet Choir.

Over the years of my own private instruction, I have been taught in manners which promote self analysis, the standard development of technique and control and keep the experience enjoyable and fun. This is a method I try to implement when teaching clarinet, or music theory to a student.

He was very professional and knowledgable of the Clarinet. Very nice and helpful, especially with advanced playing. Looking forward to my next lesson.

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.
