Jaron’s unique voice has influenced his artistry as well as his teaching. As a budding pedagogue specializing in contemporary music styles, his research on The Comparison of Vibrato Between Classical Tenors and Gospel Tenors has been presented in various seminars and classes, including the 2014 Voice Forum at The Ohio State University.
His quest for further knowledge of the pedagogy of modern singing styles is a result of his upbringing. As a child, he sang soprano in his church’s children’s choir. Even while training in these other styles, Jaron never stopped singing Gospel.
Currently, he is the only male alto in Ricky Dillard & New Generation Chorale, a Grammy nominated gospel choir based out of Chicago. He has also sung on operatic stages and performed main stage roles like “Mingo" in Porgy & Bess. In addition to his operatic experiences, he has performed in many recitals, concerts, and oratorios including Magnificat in D major by J. S. Bach and Mozart’s Requiem. Jaron has also been a finalist in several national competitions including the Orpheus Vocal Competition and Kentucky Bach Choir’s Audrey Rooney Vocal Competition.
Unknown to most is Jaron's history of speech and communication difficulties as a child that influenced his development of the speaking voice and care for the professional voice user. His speech was mostly incomprehensible which made it nearly impossible for him to communicate with anyone besides immediate family.
In addition to his private studio, Jaron serves on the Voice Faculty as an Adjunct Professor of Voice at Point Park University and currently holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music from The University of Akron and a Master of Arts in Voice Pedagogy from The Ohio State University.
