Jason White

Jason White operates at the forefront of music-making and teaching in Waterloo Region. A co- founder of The Jazz Room, an avid orchestral pianist with the K-W Symphony, Boris Brott, and the Hamilton Philharmonic, and a frequent collaborator with dancers, visual artists, actors, and playwrights, Jason brings diverse interests and experiences to teaching students, encouraging much exploration. His various performance projects have been seen in many venues running from jazz clubs and art galleries to 2,000-seat concert halls and back yards. In high demand as an educator, he tours all over Canada to adjudicate competitions. He runs workshops at universities, creates youth jazz ensemble programs for Summer festivals, and is a Registered Music Teacher through ORMTA. Jason is an examiner with Conservatory Canada, and holds a bachelor's degree in composition from Wilfrid Laurier University. He also holds a master's degree in contemporary piano performance from the Manhattan School of Music in New York City. From Jason: In this studio, people are learning not just piano, but LIFE. Math, language, communication, work habits, problem- solving, listening, embracing challenge, and setting goals. Every student has different needs; a teacher's job is to work with a student to help them to their needs, and to have some fun while doing it! Parents are welcome to sit in on all lessons. Transparency, fun, and a life-changing experience. That's what I offer.
