Jeff Jones and the Earthtones Children's Group in Concert
Jeff Jones and the Earthtones
Besides a long career as a professional musician, Jeff Jones has been an educator and children's music performer for over 25 years. Jeff is an active roster member of the Arizona Commission on the Arts, a teaching artist for the Wolftrap Foundations' "Early Learning Through The Arts In Education" and taught classroom music in the Scottsdale Unified School District for almost 10 years.
In 2007, Jeff decided to produce a recording of the music he has performed over the years for pre-schoolers at Scottsdale Center for the Arts, the Herberger Theatre and venues around Arizona. The result is "Sing a Little Song, Do a Little Dance" a fun, multicultural, interactive CD that has kids singing and dancing as soon as they hear it. Along with his band, the Earthtones, Jeff mixes old favorites along with songs sung in Spanish, English, Chinese, and musical styles and instruments from around the globe. "Jeff Jones introduces children to the world of music and the music of the world."
