He consequently immersed himself in performing music that covered a wide diversity of genres, in equally diverse venues.Currently he is active as a solo contrabassist, composing for, performing and recording with varied ensemble projects, and with the String Trio of New York. John stays actively engaged as an educator through the presentation of workshops and lecture/demonstrations on composition, improvisation, and the interconnection of music with the humanities and sciences. He is often engaged as an artist-in-residence at schools, community centers and universities throughout the world. Most recently he served in this capacity as special faculty at California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California.
