John started singing before he could talk and began playing the piano the summer before his seventh birthday, continuing a tradition of music that was passed down from his guitarist father and vocalist mother. The following thirty years would bring experiences in concert orchestration, musical theatre, vocal performance, Big Band Swing, and an opportunity to play Mozart on the Fibonacci Grand Piano. His training includes fifteen years’ piano instruction in the Orf and Suzuki methods, ten years of musical theatre performance, four years of Dalcroze education culminating in a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from California State University, Dominguez Hills, a lifetime of vocalization and over thirty years of technical musical experience. Having been an Alzheimer’s Caregiver for six years, John is a witness to the therapeutic qualities of music. He believes that it’s never too early to teach music, and it’s never too late to learn.
