Teaching Philosophy: Keep going! It’s so easy to find ourselves rushing things. We rush plans. We rush making decisions. We even rush our progress. Rushing creates anxiety. We place so much pressure on ourselves and forget to experience the beauty of each moment. Music is a peaceful outlet. No matter what stage you’re in, be present and take in every lesson, even on your not so great days. There’s purpose in the process. Keep going!

Get to know Dejanee Jones

Hi, I’m De’Janee’! I’m already looking forward to working with you! I’ve been playing the flute for 19 years now. My music journey began in Newark, NJ at 7 years old performing piccolo with the Malcolm X Shabazz Presidential Marching Band. I later attended Arts High School where I concentrated in Flute/Piccolo. Since then, I have performed side by side with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, marched over 100 parades in the east coast and more. I was a member of the Drew University Flute Choir for 2 consecutive years as a HS student alongside my instructor and soon after attended Lincoln University of Pennsylvania where I studied Human Services, music and sociology. There, I was a member of the University’s marching and pep band and was also the featured flautist for one of the Opera workshop productions, performing “One Night in Bankok”.

 

My experience includes an internship for the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra working in the education and community engagement department. A few years later, fellow Arts HS orchestra members and myself opened for the symphony’s annual park concert. One of my greatest experiences was having the honor of being able to perform a flute and tap (dance) duet piece with the great Savion Glover in 2018 while working for the New Jersey Performing Arts Center as a program assistant. My NJPAC experience also opened the door for the opportunity to accompany the lyricist Shekia “Purple Haze Norris” for an NJPAC Women’s Association event. Today, I am in the formation process of a new flute ensemble in the Philadelphia area that will be called “Dynamics” and am currently developing a program that bridges the gap between music and mental health. 

 

My love for music is heavily influenced by my passion for the mental health and well being of humanity. Expression is one of the most sacred and spiritually relieving acts a person can perform. When you play/listen to a song, you should feel. You should feel each and every note and vibration omitted by its purposefully and uniquely crafted chords. Feel the overtones, moods and modulations. Feel the rhythms as if they are a part of your anatomy. Music is like an audible motion picture that allows you to tap into your emotions whether you like it or not. All of these things will make your music lesson experience even more worthwhile!
