Hello! My name is PJ. I was born and raised in Central Florida, and I’ve spent the last 3 years in Central Iowa with my partner Libby, and our lovely and talented 4 year old daughter, Janie Rose.

I have been a professional musician for almost 20 years, four of which I spent playing trumpet, guitar, bass, and singing in the US Marine Corp Band. For the last decade, I have made my living as a multi-instrumentalist and singer, entertaining thousands on stages across the country and around the world. Currently, I am the Entertainment Director at Blue Moon Dueling Piano Bar in West Des Moines. Libby and I also have a private entertainment company called Epic Event Entertainment that provides live music for weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, etc.

Each lesson plan is customized to cater to each student’s individual needs and goals. However some concepts apply to all students. Beginners will develop a solid foundation in basic musical concepts, including, but not limited to, how to read music, the circle of fifths, scales, chords, articulation, posture and breathing. Intermediate students will learn and employ advanced music theory concepts, modes, better sight reading, and improvisation.

Lesson Details

Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

In 2014, I graduated Valedictorian from Full Sail University with a Bachelors Degree in Recording Arts. No matter what software or hardware you have, my lesson plan will have you laying down tracks after the first lesson. From there we’ll go over a variety of topics including mic selection and placement, inputs, returns, plugins, compression, EQ, modulators, delays, reverbs, tracking, mixing, and more.
