Dr. Jason Bouchard - BIO

Music has been a part of Jason’s life since an early age. He gravitated to the tuba and has performed in thousands of performances from the Bushnell to marching on Main Street: all fun and unique musical experiences. In high school, Jason studied privately at the Hartt School of Music and performed with the Connecticut Youth Symphony and Greater Hartford Youth Wind Ensemble, all while performing in his high school concert band, jazz band, jazz combo, and marching band. He is a music educator, teaching instrumental music to students of all ages. Jason regularly conducts and leads many different ensembles. He has also taught private lessons throughout his career while teaching music at the secondary level.

Jason continues to perform with several instrumental groups of various styles and sizes. He currently serves as the Principal Tuba with the Manchester Symphony Orchestra and is a first-call sub with the Connecticut Valley Civic, Holyoke, Old Post Road, and Pioneer Valley Symphonies. Private students consistently placed in the top positions in bands and orchestras within the state and college music programs across the country. Jason received his Bachelor of Music Education from Keene State College, a Master’s Degree in education with a specialization in Curriculum Writing in the Creative Arts from Lesley University, a Sixth Year in Educational Leadership from Central Connecticut State University, and a Ph.D. in Education with a specialization in Curriculum and Teaching was conferred from Northcentral University. Dr. Bouchard has studied tuba with Karl Kramer, Douglas Nelson, and Dan Johnson.

Through music, we learn to tap into our creativity
and imagination to bring the music to life.

My Approach to Teaching

I believe that music is an important aspect to our lives and that the study and performance of music is something everyone should experience. There is not one path to creating and performing music, it is through the study of music we learn this. Through music, we learn not only the mechanics and biomechanics of playing and performance, but we learn to tap into our creativity and imagination to bring the music to life.
