About Jon Gausman

Hello! My name is Jon, I'm 22 years old and I am working towards a degree in music at the College of Southern Maryland. Music has been my biggest passion for as long as I can remember and I love sharing that gift with others. I started playing saxophone in fifth grade, picked up the bass guitar in high school, and haven't put either of them down since. Music infatuates me so much because no matter how serious you are, no matter how many hours you put into it, you can ALWAYS be better, you can ALWAYS have more fun and express yourself in a more creative and limitless fashion. I hope to inspire students to see the beauty and direction in music as I do, as I pursue a career in the industry.
