Jason’s research interests focus on the perception of meaning in music, and have recently focused on the way music evokes spatiotemporal images and ideas.

A member of the Music Perception and Cognition Lab at McGill, he presented his research on sound mass perception and auditory streaming at the Ligeti Symposium and Festival at Florida State University and at the International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition in Seoul, South Korea.

Also a dedicated teacher, Jason has published many pieces for student musicians, including a collection of early intermediate piano solos, and over 50 arrangements in the Royal Conservatory of Music’s Celebration Series.
