Here are some of the student reviews I've received: "My 15yo son is really enjoying his piano lessons with Jason. He makes things easy to understand & is somehow motivational. After the last lesson, my son practiced on his own without any prompting or reminding from me. Thank you." - Oralia B. "I've been getting guitar lessons from Jason for over six years. I highly recommend him for both beginners, as was I, as well as for more experienced players who want to further their skills.

In the 1st lesson, I always ask the student what their goals are, what kind of music they want to play, what problems they have, etc.  Then I test them on basic skills to find ‘holes’ in their knowledge/skills to find the right level to start.  I have an uncanny ability to discover their main problem areas and/or misunderstood terminology and get to work right away handling them. It's rewarding to see students very quickly begin to brighten up as they clear away years of confusion and musical barriers. I’ve met many seasoned pros who have holes in their knowledge or skill that have prevented them from reaching the ... View Profile

--- At this moment I'm not taking new students in Los Angeles, I'm only accepting Skype students due to a job position in Brazil that forces me to travel often. Music theory and violin lessons work great on skype and it cost less, since the teacher does not have to travel to your house.--- --They are not good only for someone who is completely new to the violin, since in the very beginning it is fundamental to be able to correct posture. If that's your case I can recomend a good violin teacher in the Los Angeles area. --- I was seven years old when I had my first contact with the violin.

Sing what you play and play from the heart.  As a Guitar Performance graduate from Musicians Institute, I was fortunate enough to have been taught these ideas from guitarists I considered to be my idols; Jake Eckert (Dirty Dozen Brass Band), Rick Zunigar (Stevie Wonder) and the late Ross Bolton (Al Jarreau).  My approach is to provide that unique experience to my students and inspire them to achieve their goals.  Through my 15+ years of experience as a session guitarist and instructor, I have had the opportunity to perform and record with some of the top musicians in Los Angeles, while teaching students of various ages and skil ...

During the last ten years of teaching, I have encountered many different types of students at a wide range of ages (4 to 65+ years old). Throughout my teaching experience, I have learned to adapt to my students before I make them adapt to me. That way, the students felt more comfortable and were more encouraged to learn and succeed. At this point in my life, teaching became something natural rather than a planned process. Nevertheless, I plan my lessons according to the students’ needs. Even though I started learning music at an early age, I believe that it is never too late to learn since music is one of the most beautiful languages a ... View Profile
