About Jason

Hello! I have been playing music in one capacity or another for almost my entire life. I began playing piano around the house as a toddler and was taught to read music by playing handbells at my church. However once I picked up the guitar everything changed for me, I no longer had to be told to practice and I had a strong desire to learn and play on my own. As a guitarist I have toured nationally with quite a few different bands, have recorded numerous tracks and albums and have been awarded Most Original Artist by the LA music awards. I currently play with two groups.

I took over four years of music theory, guitar, piano and drums in high school and college and majored in theory at University of Maryland before finishing my degree in Anthropology when professional music opportunities arose. I began teaching private lessons ten years ago just around that same time. Both my parents are high school teachers and teaching is something natural and energizing to me. I am big on balancing exposure to music with teaching the mechanics. By this I mean that I want you, the student, to learn what you want to learn, to play what you are interested in playing and then I will customize your lessons to expand on those ideas.

I was most recently teaching private lessons in the San Luis Obispo area but have moved back to Los Angeles where I had lived for 10 years. I am very happy to be back and look forward to teaching again the southland. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions I'd be glad to answer them quickly and completely. Thank you for your time and consideration.

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.

Drums

I began playing drums in 1999, teaching myself in the garage. I took 2 years of drum classes in college and performed in a nationally touring band as a drummer. I have taught drums to a wide variety of students with a wide variety of musical interests.

Guitar

I have played guitar since 1992, when I started taking lessons in high school. I have studied guitar and guitar theory for 4 years at college and have nationally toured as a guitarist. Guitar is my best instrument and I have taught countless students all types of guitar music.

Piano

I began playing the piano at a very young age just playing at my house. I taught myself to read music as well as chords and scales. I took 4 years of piano at college and have performed live as a pianist. I have taught piano lessons for over 10 years and have never had a student outpace me, though they've come close!
