Jon Barnes has been touring, teaching, recording, marketing, lecturing, composing, while giving clinics, educational, business, and music workshops to the global community. His passion for music in education is real and can be felt from the kindergarten classes up to the college classes and beyond. With a busy tour schedule, Jon takes the time help set up music in education for school districts, colleges, and other professional organizations. His sponsors are equally excited about getting the music in education agenda pushed into the mainstream educational fore front of academia. It is a lot of work and the kids love the music, interaction, games, and my carbon fiber trumpet, and mouthpieces. Yes, I let them play my trumpet too, says Jon. According to Jon Barnes, sharing is caring and giving all children the chance to play and connect with music, just like math and reading in education. My teach, Robert Smith, gave me my first trumpet in school too. At the college level, Jon can be seen playing the drums, piano, and Upright Bass to give tips on keeping time and swinging jazz in the rhythm section. It all matters and cats gotta listen to each other to swing the music so you can dance to it. I play all of the instruments so that I can compose and explain my musical points quickly. I play music because it matters to me and then I share it, says Jon. Music Director David Hoffman is a great trumpet player and has picked some wonderful arrangement to play for the concert.

“Hello Jon, I wanted to let you know that your music made my twin sister very happy. Sherri passed away on Saturday. Her last two outings were at Mixx in Sacramento (where she purchased your awesome CD) and at Helwig Winery. She had been ill due to cancer since June 2010. On this Thanksgiving Day, I just wanted to thank the ones who touched her life with love and music. Have a blessed day Jon Barnes.”
