TREVOR JONES: A FIVE TOOL BASSIST

A native of south central Pennsylvania, Trevor hearkens from a musical family. His mother, an elementary band director, played French horn and gave private lessons in the family’s home.  His father was a public school and college music teacher who had his own big band in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.  Growing up in this environment gave Trevor a front row seat watching his parents manage gigs, collect private lesson fees and live successful lives as professional musicians.
