 Jason Provides:

Private Piano Lessons

Beginner Voice Lessons

       Music has been apart of Jason’s life ever since he was 3 years old. His mother, Gladys Stewart was a professional gospel singer, touring with the Gabriel Hardeman Delegation during the 1980’s and imparted her musical gifts onto him. His parents inherited a brown Sterling upright piano from family members and Jason began playing on it as a young child. They decided to acquire a piano instructor for their son and begin formal lessons for him at the age of five years old. 
      Throughout elementary school, Jason began to excel at the piano by composing his own music. He wrote a piano solo called “Suspense” in the third grade and performed it at his school’s winter concert which gained him some acclaim. By middle school, he was playing in the jazz band and received many awards for his improvisational skills. He was also recognized by the Westminster Choir College in 2006 for receiving high marks in the New Jersey Music Teacher’s Association Classical Piano Festival. 
      As a freshman, Jason became a member of the infamous Willingboro High School Jazz Ensemble. This group has produced many music legends such as Derrick Hodge, Dan Dilemma Thomas and Adam Blackstone; Jason was excited for the opportunity to carry on their legacies. He received many accolades and awards for his music throughout high school which got him recognition from other musicians and band directors. So much so, he was asked to become a member of the Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra and toured with them to Italy during the summer of 2008. 
      Once Jason’s high school music career had ended, he attended Lincoln University of Pennsylvania to pursue a Bachelors Degree in Piano Performance. He played for many different university aggregations such as the jazz band, concert band, concert choir and marching band where he played the tuba. During his time there, he was employed by the university to play piano for special events and church services throughout the year. 
       After graduating from Lincoln University in 2015, Jason has been embarking on his professional music career. He was the musical director and lead keyboardist for the indie artist “M!SHEL”. He has worked with Hop Hip legends DJ Cash Money and Kwamé and produces for local artists in his community. He also played for Tabernacle Baptist Church, his home church where he grew up. Jason is just beginning his musical journey and is looking forward to the process. “I am very grateful to God for blessing me with this gift. My job now is to impact and impart my gift onto people so that He can be glorified!”
