About The Artist When Jeffrey was still just an infant, his mother would spend hours just listening to lots of different piano music (jazz, classical, contenporary). Well it must have affected him on some level since he was the one, at nine yrs. Of age, to go to his parents and ask if he could take piano lessons! They were delighted! He was lucky, he says, to have had a great piano instructor, Jerome Moffit, who taught a well balanced method of technique, (classical, and jazz & improv.) Jeffrey remembers, 'My teacher and I would play a four hands duet by Bartok at the beginning of the lesson, then he put on a record of Oscar Peterson, the great jazz pianist, and blow my mind with the possibilities of improvisation.' Jeffrey was simply in love with learning, performing and creating music. It was his focus all through grammar, and high school, which he studied in the small town of Cave Junction, OR. He played many different roles including singer/songwriter, rock n' roll band member, solo pianist, jazz band member, choir accompanist, well . . . you get the picture. In 1987, he went on to study Music at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, OR honing his composition, and performance skills while continuing to form more and more of his own unique sound and style. It was during this period in Ashland that Jeffrey discovered the grace of spiritual healing. This was another beginning, which would change his approach to music, opening more to the subtle healing aspects of sound and music. Today, Jeffrey currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area. Most recently he has shared the stage with celebrities such as James Twyman, John Gray, and Clive Barker, and even had his music licensed for United Airlines!
