About Jared

In addition to collaborating with others to create and perform music, Jared loves to discuss the odds and ends of music. Having been a music theory and aural skills tutor for numerous years at Pepperdine University, he has become very well accustomed to presenting difficult concepts in ways that are simple, easy, and attractive to ponder. No matter the skill-level, Jared is able to provide insight and guidance that makes each stage of development live on an equal playing-field.

Jared is a composer, producer, performer, and band director completing his final semester as a Music Composition major at Pepperdine University. At present, he composes for Film/TV, leads worship, fronts an alternative rock band, and participates in numerous collaborations--ranging from conducting chamber music to arranging pop songs for an all-male acapella group. Occupied with various forms of professional work, Jared will continue to enjoy thriving in the Los Angeles area before pursuing further graduate studies in Composition.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Composition (Music)

I am currently in the final semester of obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in Composition & Music Theory at Pepperdine University, where I have been tutoring music theory, ear training, and composition for three years. I have been commissioned by both production companies (Red Flag Productions) & foundations (Mary Pickford Foundation) to compose music for various products and events. Over the past few years I have engaged in compositional studies with Dr. N Lincoln Hanks (Pepperdine), Dr. Matthew Brown (USC), Missy Mazzoli, and Ted Hearne (USC).

Ear Training

When I was twelve years old, I discovered that I had perfect-pitch: the ability to hear any note and know the pitch, and sing any note with full awareness of its pitch. In my time as an ear-training tutor at Pepperdine, I have been told that I am a very effective instructor in this area. I am currently in the final semester of obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in Composition & Music Theory.

Piano

I have been playing piano for thirteen years, and in that time I have played piano/keyboards for a wide variety of mediums ranging from playing organ for pentecostal gospel bands to accompanying classical singers at the piano. Primarily, I compose at the piano and feel most at home when at the seat of the instrument. I have also tutored students in piano at Pepperdine University over the past two years.

Songwriting

At Pepperdine University, songwriting has been an essential tool in my professional and musical development. As the frontman and primary songwriter for alternative rock band, in addition to my own solo songwriting, my work has been showcased and well-received at many venues across Southern California and beyond. I have also helped other musicians who have shown interest in this area learn skill-sets that have given them confidence to not only try songwriting, but then showcase their work through public performance.

Voice (Music)

I had originally started as a Vocal Performance major. I currently sing tenor for Pepperdine University's traveling chamber choir, lead worship at Calvary Community Church, and sing for the alternative rock band, Timsh'l. Additionally, I have also participated in a number of operas and musicals ranging from Mozart's Cosi fan tutte to Rodgers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma!
