I graduated with my music degree (woodwind proficiency) in 2003. While in college, I studied under a teacher who was a student of Mike Guerra, widely recognized in his generation as one of the greatest technique instructors on clarinet and saxophone.
After graduation, I went on to teach private lessons for two years on the high school and college level, after which I took a position at a church as music director. I taught lessons, directed choirs, and organized music performances for twelve years before moving to Washington. I'm now in my first year of specific focus on private instruction.
I've learned that proper technique, sight reading, playing by ear, and listening to great artists are all critical to becoming a well-rounded musician. I would love to help you find the same love for music and the clarinet that I've found!
A little about me: I've been happily married since 2003, and I have four children 12 and under. I love a large variety of music and I love the outdoors.
I led the music department at Faith Baptist Church, which included weekly chorus practices and seasonal full program performances. I also taught private lessons.
I taught music classes and woodwind private lessons on the high school and college level.
Encouraging, patient, good communicator, and loves the clarinet.
I did not take private lesson from Jason, but was in the church choir that he directed. As a director he was excellent. He was very easy to follow. Our choir improved tremendously under his direction. His ear for music is amazing. He can pick out the parts of a piece of music that need work and works with the singers to get the part right. I know some of the students he taught at our church and they always talked highly of him and how easy it was to work with him. I have also heard him play the clarinet and the clari-sax and the saxophone. He is a phenomenal performer. I would have my child take lessons from him anytime.Show More
