I had the pleasure of seeing and hearing Jason's exquisite talent with the saxophone recently in a private concert. I was extremely impressed with his talent and I think anyone wishing to learn to play the sax or just improve your own talents would benefit from Jason's dedication and expertise.

Jason is Masters holding, fine performance level, teacher of saxophone. I know this because I worked with him on and off for the better part of a year, as a party to his recital preparation. We also have tentative plans to put together a saxophone quartet, where I'll certainly look forward to making music with Jason.
