Background Check

I thoroughly enjoy sharing my musical knowledge and experiences with my students. Within my lessons, I strive to create a learning environment that is fun and positive but also pushes students to grow as musicians and develop their craft.

I have been teaching music for seven years. My approach is to provide students with important foundational elements and practical techniques within the context of learning and writing music that they have a passion for.

I am an award-winning composer and multi-instrumentalist. I have had my music broadcast worldwide during the El Clásico pre-game show, collaborated with members of the legendary hip-hop group, Wu-Tang Clan, and toured the United States as a performer.

An original song that I co-wrote was selected as a Semi-Finalist in the 2015 International Songwriting Competition. I also gained international attention in 2014 when, along with vocalist and collaborator Aria Pullman Ostrander, I won the beIN the Beat competition, and was flown to Miami to record at the legendary Hit Factory Criteria studio. This live recording was broadcast during the Real Madrid vs. FC Barcelona soccer game.

My music has received radio play on KCSN (88.5 FM) and The Independent FM. And my achievements have been profiled in Voyage LA Magazine, Buzzbands.LA, The Deli Magazine, Arena Music, Care2Rock, Skillshare, and WeHeartMusic.

I know Jason teaches all ages and all levels of different instruments. He has been teaching my 10 year old boy piano and it’s really given Richard confidence and self esteem!! Jason has the patience to teach beginners and the great personality that keeps his student interested and engaged. It’s been difficult finding an activity that Dichards enjoys but also wants to continue. With Jason’s help and encouragement and knowledge he gives to Richard, we are on a road to a successful and happy endeavor that will last a lifetime. I could not be more appreciative to you Jason!!!

Jason is one of the best teachers that I have come across. His sense of humor and teaching style is the best. I enjoyed my lesson with him and learned a lot. I look forwards to more lessons in the future.

Angelica made a great first impression on my daughter. Desiree really enjoyed her voice lesson. Angelica was fun & engaging- she really personalized the lesson.

My 15yo son Harley is really enjoying his piano lessons with Jason. He makes things easy to understand & is somehow motivational. After the last lesson, Harley practiced on his own without any prompting or reminding from me. Thank you.

Jason gave my 5 year old daughter her 1st piano lesson, and by the end of the 30 minutes she could do simple scales with both her hands. He was very kind and patient throughout the lesson. My daughter is very excited to practice and continue learning! Thank you, Jason!

I cannot say enough positive things about Jason. I started classes on acoustic guitar with him late last year and it has been well worth the subscription fee. He is very talented and makes the classes very interactive and fun. He makes himself available via email to answer any questions and his teaching skills are fantastic! I am hoping to have my son take classes with him once he is a bit older. We’ll be a dad and son rock duo for sure!

My daughter enjoys working with Jason, because he very easy for her to understand using this platform and he is very patient and thorough. He prepares material ahead of time for her to comprehend the concepts he teaches.
Excellent instructor!

Jason teaches my daughter and for only a couple of months he has been teaching my 5 1/2 year old girl play the keyboard piano and it’s really given Mahalia confidence and the ability to read music. Jason has the persistence to teach beginners and the great personality that keeps his student interested and involved. I wanted my daughter to be exposed to help with increasing her interest in Math and exposed to reading and writing music to enhance her knowledge, self-confidence in life overall. Thank you Jason!

“I’ve been getting guitar lessons from Jason for over six years. I highly recommend him for both beginners as well as for more experienced players who want to further their skills. Jason has a vast knowledge of all things musical, from theory to his ability to play multiple instruments to his composition work.” – Janet
