As a pilot, an avid ice hockey player, a Wall Street technician, and a piano player, John''s diverse interests allow him to explore different avenues using subtle tones to demonstrate his music ability.
Even before his first kindergarten class, John began taking piano lessons on the baby grand piano in his family''s living room. Classical music was generally the focus of the family, and has largely influenced John''s music genre. Following the music track of Trinity College Music, London, John advanced through piano lessons and at twelve years of age, introduced the French horn to his repertoire. John''s piano experience helped him jumpstart a career in local symphonies and concert bands.
As John grew older and the dream of playing the French horn diminished, he found himself back at the piano. Although he majored in computer science, John minored in music. At this point in John''s life, exposure to other types of music, such as jazz and blues, began to change the general structure of his music. To stay focused on creating original melodies, John continually exercises his musical creativity by involving himself in various forms of music performances. He has created musical compositions for church services, written soundtracks for independent dramatic performances and frequently performs at weddings and cocktail hours.
These days, John''s primary inspirations for music come from flying the Northeast corridor. The fantastic skyline of New York City, the rolling hills of Pennsylvania, the New England coastline brushing the Atlantic, and the ever-changing seasons found there, all come together where John''s music takes on a unique personality rarely found in the fast-paced world of today.
