John began playing the piano at the age of seven and took an early
interest in jazz. Though classically trained, jazz remains his favorite
genre. In addition to the piano, he has studied voice, as well as the trombone.
John has had the opportunity to play in many musical groups of all sizes and styles,
from concert bands, choirs, and orchestras, to small jazz groups and pop
bands. Combining his smooth voice with his practiced accompanying skills
allows John to create the perfect chordal backdrops and embelleshed vocal
melodies throughout each piece.
