Jason Tonioli

Jason Tonioli

Hooper, UT

Jason Tonioli (pronounced: toe-knee-oh-lee) was raised in Soda Springs, Idaho and Roy, Utah. He started piano lessons when he was in Kindergarten and enjoyed practicing for the first year. Throughout his school years he disliked practicing. (However he did enjoy the fact that girls like a guy who can play piano.) His piano skills are a product of excellent teachers and a mother who wouldn’t let him quit. If it weren’t for a mother who won the “piano war” with her son, this book would never have been written.

Jason always enjoyed playing piano as long as he could play what he wanted, the way he wanted. When practicing, he would often play part of what Mozart, Beethoven or Rachmaninoff had written and part what he made up while playing. His mother and teacher often looked down upon changing what was written and always told him that when he started writing his own music, he could write and play the way “he thought” it should be done.

He has published 7 Piano Solo Books and 4 albums which are available at http://www.tonioli.com. Over 25 free PDF sheet music songs are available on his site, along with over 75 songs for purchase. Jason has become well known for his arrangements of piano Hymns.
