My Education and Professional Background
Dr. Jones recently finished his doctoral degree at Arizona State University, where he was a graduate assistant with the Wind and Athletic Bands. Prior to moving to Arizona he was the Interim Director of Bands at Malone University (OH) and an Adjunct Professor at Kent State University (OH). Dr. Jones has also served as the Director of Bands in the Maple Heights City School District (OH), teaching grades 5-12. In addition to his Doctorate of Musical Arts in Wind Conducting from ASU, he also holds a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from the University of Akron and a Master of Music in Wind Conducting from Kent State University.

My Educational Philosophy
Every student in the Casteel band program will strive every day to become a better musician. Emphasis is placed on community building and being a part of something that is bigger than one individual person. The hope is to create a lifelong relationship with music appreciation regardless of the path students choose after their time at Casteel.
