About Jason

With over ten years of experience as a songwriter, performer, teacher, and recording artist, Jason has harnessed his passion for music, using it as an effective tool in empowering youth and adults from all over the world to build self-confidence through self-expression.

Most recently, he developed a community music learning program called Musicphilia: Love for Music, which serves to give back to the community through music lessons and workshops that create accessibility and opportunity for beginners to pick up an instrument or write a song, to build upon musical self-expression.

As a singer/songwriter, Jason has released several albums, teaming up with producer James Sabella (Marcy Playground, Nine Days), vocalist Angela Workman (Stevie Wonder) and percussionist Steve Holly (Paul McCartney).

He has successfully funded and organized several US tours garnering support from national press and college radio stations. Additionally, he has organized and performed at various fundraising events, raising money for children affected by life threatening illnesses as well as communities affected by natural disasters.

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.

Guitar

I currently teach several beginner students acoustic guitar.

Songwriting

I was awarded the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers [ASCAP] Plus Award in 2014 and 2013. I have also organized songwriting workshops.

Voice (Music)

I trained with Grammy nominated recording artist and co-founder of the Universal Records recording act The East Village Opera Company, Tyley Ross. He taught me the importance of understanding and using proper breathing techniques, effective warm ups and how to increase your performance stamina. As a professional live performer and recording artist, I continue to use these techniques and teach them to my fellow students. My students will learn the core fundamentals of how to effectively use their voices without harm or strain.
