Overview

My name is Jason and I am a piano player, guitar player, composer, songwriter, and producer specializing in writing music for film, TV, commercials, and multimedia applications. I studied music theory, composition, arranging, orchestration, and songwriting at the Berklee College of Music and graduated with a degree in Film Scoring with a piano principle.

Simply put, I believe that above all, learning and playing music should be fun.
For as long as I remember, my life has revolved around music. Over the years, I have found music to be my greatest source of pleasure, inspiration, and wonderment. I believe that music has the power to enrich and nourish our lives in ways that nothing else can. As your tutor, I hope to instill in you the same love and appreciation of music that has lived in me throughout my life.

I was fortunate to find a teacher like Jason to teach me about music. He listened and learned about me and related his teaching style towards that. He is extremely knowledgable with a great attitude! Highly recommended!
