About the Presenter

Jonathan Blanchard received his B. S. Degree in Commercial Music and M. S. Degree in Music Education from Tennessee State University and is a Lincoln Center Teaching Artist. Blanchard believes that “any tool that can assist a student in learning must be used”. And in that vein, he has dedicated two decades to using art as a primary tool in the matriculation of students all over Tennessee. Blanchard has provided workshops for teachers, residencies, arts integration concerts, and lectures for over 15 years. “The goal has always been, to educate, entertain, and to spark independent thought”. With music, theatre, history, social studies, and a full band in tow, Blanchard intends on doing just that.
