Bio

From Jonathan ("Pux"): Even before my new album, Loosey Goosey, came to fruition, I’ve always enjoyed composing songs that made friends or strangers laugh, cry or maybe just think, “that’s really cool and interesting!” It comes down to this: if I don’t play with all my soul, I feel as if I’m cheating myself and the listener. By sharing my thoughts and experiences through these songs, I hope they remind you of something in your life; perhaps a bad rooming experience, maybe your favorite coffee shop, relationships, you get the idea. Music is meant to be shared, so if you have a minute, enjoy one of my songs and let me know what's up!

Boston College student review: “what can i say. the music you have written has changed my life. MY LIFE jonny Y! ever since i heard such classics as coffee shop, dave ur a loser, sumimasen, and of course the zelda tribute, my existence has been given new meaning. . . i will buy tshirts for all my friends and relatives. and perhaps all the frosh here at bc as well. or at least all the ones worthy to bear your glorious standard."

Short Bio of Jonathan Yasuda: Jonathan was born in Boston and began studying piano at the age of five. He was a student at the All Newton Music School under Mrs. Susan Osberg, and winner of the school's concerto competition at age eleven, performing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3. Jonathan enrolled in the New England Conservatory Preparatory School, studying first with Mrs. Jean Stackhouse for three years and then with Mr. Jonathan Bass. After being awarded first place in the 1998 Preparatory School's Concerto Competition, Jonathan performed Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No.1 in the historic Jordan Hall. Upon graduation, he received the 2001 Theory Department Award, Chamber Music, and Piano Department Award.

Jonathan graduated from the College of the Holy Cross, class of 2005. He was the Brooks Scholar for his class, receiving a full tuition merit based scholarship, majoring in Music with a minor in Economics-Accounting and a Pre- Law concentration. As a sophomore Jonathan performed Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto with the Holy Cross Orchestra.

Jonathan does not limit himself to the classical world. He frequently performs for venues as a jazz pianist as well. He is open to all genres so long as it broadens his musical horizon. In his opinion, every piece of music is like a message in a bottle: it can be from all the way around the world, but it’s for the artist to pop the cork and read the letter to the world.

When he is not in front of a piano, Jonathan can often be found sailing or ferrying on the water. He is a certified United States Sailing Instructor and a Coast Guard licensed Merchant Marine Officer. Jonathan is currently composing and actively performing in the Boston area (visit www.worcesterchambermusic.org) while pursuing his Juris Doctorate at the New England School of Law in Boston, MA.
