John was a music teacher for the Southern Kern Unified School District. He played the trumpet and had studied at Southern California College in Costa Mesa, California, USA. At the time of this posting, it was called Vanguard University. While he was at Southern California College, he played in a 25-piece touring Orchestra that “included some Ministry.” The band played some jazz but mostly gospel music because the school was a Christian School.
