About Jon K.

Hi, my name is Jon! I’m a current military musician based in the San Diego area. I studied trombone music performance in college before auditioning and winning a spot in the Marine Corps field bands. I’ve been performing in the military for over 11 years now and have traveled extensively throughout the United States and the world.

I am a “people person” and enjoy making lessons fun! Although I am in the military, I have a very laid back approach to music and teaching the trombone. I look forward to working with you!
