I provide horn lessons that will be inspirational, fun and rewarding. My training at Juilliard and performing experience as well as studies with some of most sought after teachers in the field will allow me to deliver high quality lessons with a personalized approach to each student. Each student will be able to achieve their own goals with music and horn.
In music technology, my background as working in the Juilliard recording department and recording both peers and my own performances will help provide a professional approach to recording and music production.

His brass quintet, 511 Brass received a fellowship to study at the Aspen Music Festival in 2019 and has presented recitals and classes in NYC and LA.
I love sharing music with my students. Teaching is a two way street and I learn just as much from my students than they learn from me. I think that the horn is such a beautiful instrument and am so excited to share my passion for it with others.
Jason is extremely knowledgeable and provided an enriching learning environment for me . He helped me drive to improve each week in positive way.
He was patient with me.
Mark was so excited for lessons each week. Mark always wanted to play star wars all the time and Jason found a way to have it be a learning experience for Mark. Highly recommend for kids.
Jason worked very well with high school student. They loved working with him and he helped them a lot with youth orchestra.
I first want to get to know the student on a personal level so I can cater my instruction toward their interests as well and clearly understand their goals and how music is a part of their life. Then we will explore something they have worked on before or if they have never played before I will teach them how to play the instrument. It is important to understand how the student learns and what they need to learn to better serve them.
