Jon Barnes Music on TV Show
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. Enjoy the concert and bring a friend!

Your life is forever changed when you listen to a recording in your music teachers office at 15 ( Charles Funn) and become inspired by it's content! Thirty five years later, Clark Terry's music and master pieces of Jazz will always be a major influence in my music because he is a Good Guy and role model for me as I approach 50... as He approaches 100! Although I have never met him personally, I am thankful to have listen to his music and the band stand stories about him memorizing the ARBANS! This is indeed my tribute to Clark Terry, the trumpeter, composer, musician, the scat singing, and wonderful human being! Your musical voice is truly unique! Jon Barnes
