A newcomer to the Bay Area, Johnny is an active music student and performing concert saxophonist. He holds the chair of Alto Saxophonist in the Zēlos Saxophone Quartet, an actively performing chamber ensemble, as well as first chair Alto Saxophone in the SJSU Wind Ensemble.


Johnny’s beginner students learn the basics of music theory as well as the basics of the saxophone. New students can expect to learn how to properly assemble a saxophone and play a tune in the first lesson. More advance students, such as those in middle/high school, will learn the essentials of musicality and begin learning standard repertoire. All students are expected to practice and prepare a minimum amount for each lesson in order to progress. Johnny will work with students based on their needs, and will help solve any problems they may face.


Johnny has received several awards, including the grand prize for the 2017 San Jose Music Study Club Competition and first-place for the 2017-18 MTNA State/Regional Chamber Ensemble Competitions with the Zēlos Quartet.
