John Reynolds

Like many musicians before him, John was born into a musical family. Both his mother and father are accomplished pianists. John’s musical journey began on piano at age 5. He fell in love with the trumpet at at 10 and later learned to play drums at age 12.

John graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a B.A. in Music Education. He later won a scholarship enabling him to join San Diego State University’s internationally acclaimed jazz program where he earned his Master’s Degree in Jazz Performance. John was recently accepted the D.M.A. program at the University of Southern California and has been awarded a musical merit scholarship. He will obtain a Doctorate in Jazz Performance so that he can pursue a tenured professorship.
