Teacher Spotlight, Dameon Jones

Teacher Spotlight, Dameon Jones

Fall has arrived and it’s the perfect time to get back to our teacher spotlights! This month, we are happy to introduce you to our new Presto choir director, Dameon Jones. He is actually one of Jeanne’s former Capital students and has performed with CCC at Holiday Pops as a current member of the Columbus Symphony Chorus.

Mr. Jones is a respected performer, singer and music educator for over 14 years, who is dedicated to the growth of students and their craft. With a Bachelor of Music from Ohio Wesleyan University and Master of Music in Education with Kodály emphasis from Capital University, Jones currently serves as the music teacher at Hopewell Elementary in Dublin, Ohio.

Prior to his role at Hopewell Elementary, Jones worked at Thomas Worthington High School as director of Choral Activities. During his time at Thomas Worthington his students performed various masterworks, including Mozart Regina Coeli and Schubert Mass in G with the Thomas Worthington Chamber Orchestra. The choirs also performed with the Singing Men of Ohio, The Alliance Choir, and the Ohio Wesleyan University Chamber Choir. The Thomas Worthington Women’s Chorale performed for the OMEA Columbus Professional Development Conference in February of 2018.

When not performing or teaching, Dameon enjoys spending time with his wife, Dr. Heather Bowen-Jones, an optometrist and daughters Avery (3) and Brynn (1).
