Trailblazing, innovative jazz saxophone
A husband, father, musician, educator and entrepreneur, Fort Worth native, Quamon Fowler, has been following his passion for performing and teaching for more than 25 years. He’s known world-wide for his musical skills on the saxophone and the electronic wind instrument. He placed third in the 2008 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition and is an artist in residence for the School of Church Music at Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth. While traveling and performing, Quamon was inspired as a writer to compose an energetic and aggressive composition, “The Reinforcement.” This piece was selected as one of the top three compositions by Billy Harper, Mariah Snider and Cecil Bridgewater in the first annual ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composer’s Awards Competition. As a recipient of the ASCAP Award, he was able to perform at the ASCAP headquarters in New York as a part of the annual Jazz Wall of Fame induction ceremony. The following year he won again with his composition, “Special Delivery” and “Within A Love So True” in 2008. Quamon continues to be a trailblazer as he teaches jazz saxophone at the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and online via Skype and his music education site, TeXas10erMusicAcademy.com.
