Jon Gailmor (he/him)

Workshop Leader

A Culture of Creative & Deeper Learning

Jon presents songwriting residencies and workshops for students in pre-school through college, mostly of the integrated arts and curriculum-based variety, where students bring their academics to life in song. Humans of all ages discover their own music and in many cases un-earth a brand-new passion. Fledgling composers have total creative control, owning each lyric and every melodic note, with Jon as catalyst and "artistic midwife".


Jon has been honored as an “Extraordinary Vermonter” by the governor, received the Mayor’s Peace Prize in Burlington and was awarded a Silver Citation by the Vermont Arts Council. He sang as Vermont’s representative at the 25th Anniversary of the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and, in 1996, was chosen to carry the Olympic Torch through Brattleboro, on its way to Atlanta. Recently, he received the Ellen McCulloch-Lovell Award for Arts in Education. Jon has toured with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, has released seven albums and lives with his family and other creatures, among the 800 souls of Elmore, Vermont.


Jon is available for school residencies to help implement your project.  Visit his website for booking information, a more in-depth description of his workshops, and reviews/reactions to his performances and songwriting sessions.
