OUR TEAM.

JON COURSEY

DIRECTOR

Jon comes from a background in Music and Media. It was while studying that Jon co-foundered Rockstar Recipes with school friends David McKinnon and Mark Ling. Jon took on the top management role in 2005 and has since put together a highly effective management team that has achieved many successes including firmly establishing Jamorama and Rocket Piano as on-line leaders in music tuition and launching the successful SongPond product. Jon was a Canterbury Regional Finalist in the 2007 and 2008 New Zealand Institute of Management Young Executive of the Year Awards. Jon is an active musician and drums in local band Hennessy Love Machine. He loves the outdoors and is an avid cyclist and runner, and can be found out on the Port Hills most weekends.

DAVID MCKINNON

DIRECTOR

David comes from a psychology and music background. It was in his third year of study at Canterbury University that he co-founded Rockstar Recipes with business partners Jon and Mark and he hasn’t looked back since. During his time at Rockstar David has filled multiple roles giving him a great knowledge of all areas within the company. David’s attention to detail made him the perfect candidate to take on the role of Chief Financial Officer. David plays bass guitar in the active local band Hennessy love machine. He also loves to cook and will forever be in pursuit of the perfect steak.

MARK MCKENZIE

HEAD GUITAR INSTRUCTOR

If there’s anything Mark doesn’t know on guitar, it’s probably not worth knowing. He’s been playing since his early teens and loves passing on his hard won knowledge to anyone who’s interested. As well as guitars, he knows a thing or two about owning property and how to catch a wave. He’s growing in web awareness and loves nothing more than getting in front of a camera and teaching.

LUIS TOVAR

PRODUCT SUPPORT MANAGER

Luis comes to Rockstar Recipes all the way from Mexico and has a background in music and international Business. Before coming to New Zealand Luis spent a number of years as a session drummer and instructor. Luis started at Rockstar in 2008 as technical support for the Spanish language version of the Jamorama learn guitar course. Since then Luis has taken on technical support for all of Rockstar Recipes products and also assists the marketing team in deploying tactical marketing initiatives for the Spanish language product. Luis is the drummer for local band Soul System who was recently runner up in the local RDU Roundup Competition.
