Hi, my name is Jason Gong and I'm a pianist and cellist based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
I provide services as:
Solo: Piano | Cello
Duo: Piano Violin | Piano Cello | Cello Violin
String Quartet (2 Violins, Viola, Cello)
I perform for weddings, dinners, birthdays, ceremonies, graduations, recordings, retirement homes, etc. I also teach piano and cello privately and accompany instrumentalists, singers, musical theater, and choral groups.
In addition to classical styles I also play a lot of pop, rock, and other contemporary styles! I love to improvise, I play by ear, and I'm also a very strong sight-reader.
Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to connecting with you!
Jason played for a very important annual event in honor of my cherished deceased father, Calvin E. Sturdivant. He played brilliantly and helped to fill some of the more awkward moments in the program. When we started playing a family trivia game; Jason instinctively started to play the theme from, Jeopardy! There is a quiet dignity about Jason. He Never left the piano for the whole 2 hours. We ran over and he did not get an attitude. My family was very well pleased with his skill and we gave him a standing ovation. Our program next year is 2/9/2020- and if he is available, the gig is his.... truly a gifted piano player. We got our monies worth and more.
Jason was great. He arrived on time, was very polite and played excellent. I would hire him again.
Price Range: Please contact for rates.
Gig Length: 30 - 180 minutes
Languages: Chinese, English, French
What to Expect
I provide services both as a solo artist and as chamber groups including
Piano Violin Duo
Piano Cello Duo
Cello Violin Duo
For any duo/quartet bookings, I will handle all communication and logistics with the other performers. I invite clients to be as involved as they would like in the planning process. If there is specific music you have in mind I'd love to make your vision happen, and if not I'd be happy to take the lead on that discussion and curate a playlist tailored for you and your event.
Jason is an international pianist, cellist, and music educator from Michigan. He received his MPerf in Piano Performance at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and his BMus in piano performance at the University of Michigan. He has performed on his own and with other musicians around the world, in places like England, Portugal, the Czech Republic, and the United States.
Locally, Jason works with many musicians in the University of Michigan as well as individuals and private studios around Washtenaw, Wayne, and Oakland counties. In addition, he has worked and performed with many chamber groups and orchestras such as the UM University Choir, MUSKET, Detroit Symphony Orchestra Civic Ensemble, the Panache Group, Cellochan, Mosaic Youth Theatre, and Seaway Chorale and Orchestra.

I hold a very large repertoire of classical and pop styles. Upon further contact, I can show you some of my library and what I can play on hand. I am also great at arranging and playing by ear and with some time in advance, can prepare custom songs or a set list unique for your event upon request.
