Jay K. is a Composer and Performer born out of the woodlands of Southeastern Massachusetts. After a brief stint of wanting to be a hip hop emcee, he switched over to the guitar at age 13 and quickly discovered what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Through high school Jay discovered all sorts of music, started and dissolved many bands, and became active in his schools’ music department; including one notorious musical ensemble that required spandex attire.

After graduating, he headed off to Rhode Island College where he tried his best at classical music but longed for jazz and transferred to UMass Dartmouth. There, he gave up on jazz and focused on composition. Jay’s musical palette was expanded quite a bit during this time as he fell in love with avant-garde and experimental traditions while retaining his love for rock and pop.

Since graduating from UMass, he has been active throughout Massachusetts; teaching, composing, performing, arranging, and working with his rock bands “Sun of Sound,” and “Something About Horses.” Through these bands he has had the opportunity to work with musicians such as Carla Kihlstedt (Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Tom Waits, Book of Knots) and Matthias Bossi (Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Skeleton Key, John Vanderslice, Book of Knots) as well as share the stage with bands such as the Memorials, Talib Kweli, Nappy Roots, Hollywood Undead, and Kayo Dot amongst others. He currently resides in Cambridge, MA.

In Jay's lessons, his students can expect to learn through the music that inspires them as well as develop their own personal musical voice. While emphasizing hard work, enjoying and feeling good about yourself and your skills is the ultimate goal.
