Presentation Title: Multimodal approach to playing and teaching the Double Bass
Type of Presentation: Lecture
Musical Style: Pedagogical

Jones grew up in southern Wisconsin playing bass in his high school
orchestra, jazz band, musicals, and a local garage band, as well as
dancing at the local studio. He attended the University of Wisconsin
Madison for a B.M. in String Bass Performance and Pedagogy, with an
interest in integrating alternative teaching methods from other
disciplines such as dance, athletics, occupational therapy, and
Dalcroze Eurhythmics. He then went on for a M.M. in the same
discipline at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, continuing
his integrative pedagogical quest with their music therapy training
center and the Dalcroze School of the Rockies, as well as playing out
across the front range with jazz combos, high power rock bands,
symphonies, and family band country bluegrass outfits. He plans on
using his vast breadth of musical experiences to write a book to
train and teach bassists (or all musicians) to connect their
classical training and music theory knowledge and apply it to their
playing and improvising using new novel techniques and approaches.
