About Me

Welcome to AvenueALPHA, where music intersects with technology and law. I’m Jon, a music and technology enthusiast, and a seasoned lawyer with experience practicing law since 2007. 

Since I began playing piano at age 6, music has been a passion that has continued to be a constant source of inspiration in my life while building a successful career in law. 

I created AvenueALPHA to share valuable information and inspire you to make songs that you can share with the world.

Whether you’re a beginner learning how to make a song, or an experienced musician honing music production skills, AvenueALPHA provides insights to help you achieve your goal faster. You can find informative guides about music production, technology, and law on this site to help you become more efficient and confident when you make songs.

AvenueALPHA is not only about practical tips and useful reviews. It’s also a beacon of inspiration to encourage you to reach your music production goals, no matter how difficult they may seem.

As someone who has faced major hurdles in life, including growing up in one of the poorest cities in America and overcoming racism and violence, I know firsthand the power of music to uplift and empower.

Music helped me remain resilient despite all the negativity and hate that I faced. I spent a significant amount of time listening to music and practicing the piano, trombone, and guitar growing up.

The time I invested in music paid off when I auditioned to be part of the Rose Parade Honor Band. Among the numerous high school students throughout Southern California that tried out for the same spot, I was chosen to be a first-chair trombonist two-years in a row.

In addition to working hard on my music skills, I focused on achieving academic success ultimately leading me to attend UCLA after high school. 

When I ventured into music production as a hobby, I dedicated countless hours to learning and experimenting with different techniques and tools including Ableton Live, a digital audio workstation (DAW). Within just three months, I was able to remix a song using that beat making software by reading and watching tutorials online, analyzing other songs, and experimenting with synthesizers.

As someone who has overcome significant obstacles to accomplish set goals, I believe anyone can achieve goals with dedication and practice. I am a living testament to the power of determination and perseverance in the face of challenges..

I believe that anyone can achieve their music production goals with dedication and practice, regardless of their natural talent. I am a living testament to the power of perseverance and determination in the face of challenges.
