Director - advanced vocal harmony bands

Introduction to music at a very early age, Jason soon developed a strong passion for singing.  While in high school, Jason was part of a cappella "doo wop" group and this sparked his desire to study voice. After high school, Jason started a cappella quartet in which he sang for 4 years.  During this time, he would develop his skills and knowledge of harmony singing and voice.  Studying every aspect of singing and all styles from barbershop quartets, bluegrass, gospel and country, all the way to theater and everything in between, he soon developed a strong passion for teaching.  While enjoying his career as a professional musician, Jason feels his true passion is with helping others reach their music and vocal goals.
