      Get to know John Loughton

      Hello! I'm John Loughton, the store manager at Lawrence Park Music & Arts. I joined M&A in 2018 and have had the pleasure of working in the Horsham, Plymouth Meeting, Princeton, Marlton, Camden, Manalapan, Edison, and Wayne locations, and managing in Plymouth Meeting and Horsham. 

      I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music from the College of William and Mary, where I focused on composition, music production, and ethnomusicology. I also studied jazz performance and piano via a summer program at Tulane University and Lusher School of the Arts in New Orleans.

      While my primary instrument is piano/keyboard, I also play guitar, bass, violin, viola, cello, mandolin, and oud (Middle Eastern lute), along with basic experience with banjo, accordion, and hand percussion. In college, I performed with the Middle Eastern Music Ensemble, with a wide repertoire from the classical Arab, Greek, Turkish, and Sephardic Jewish traditions. I also regularly perform my original acoustic, electronic, and classical instrumental works.

      After and during college I taught keyboard, guitar, and bass for middle and high school students at after-school programs. I also taught sectionals for oud, cello, and traditional percussion while in college. 

      I have extensive experience with composing, recording, and producing original music, released professionally as Veii. My composing projects include scoring independent films, incidental music for original theater, and works for chamber ensembles and orchestra. My composing interests include indeterminism, improvisation, minimalism, and soundscapes.

      Since high school I have also loved progressive rock, glam rock, folk, and jazz, and have performed with original and cover bands from New Jersey through Virginia.

      I'm always interested in hearing about everyone's original projects, and I'd be excited to talk with you about them and help you find everything you need!
