About Jere Douglas

Jere Douglas, award winning clarinetist and clinician, began his musical career on the piano at the tender age of 5 years old (1962) studying in the Berl Olswanger Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. He continued his musical growth in the junior and chancel choirs of Second Presbyterian Church in Memphis along with picking up the Clarinet in the 9th grade at Milan High School working under the tutelage of Mr. Robert Hodge. From these beginnings in classical and jazz, Jere has performed with the Germantown Symphony, Memphis Symphony, in musicals on Broadway and in London, with Ray Charles, Bette Midler, Barry Manilow, Joyce Cobb, Count Basie, Doobie Brothers, and is a well recognized session and pit musician.
As a freelance musician, Jere has played in many of the major and minor symphonies as a fill in. As a clinician, Jere has taught around the US, including through the Mid-America Arts Alliance, TMEA, NAMTA and various regional and state organizations. He has performed as guest soloist with ensembles in Japan, England, Australia, Korea, Thailand, China, Germany, and as Artist in Residence at "The Clearing" Sister Bay, Wisconsin, Woodwind Specialist Arkansas Repertory Theatre.
Jere is a sensitive performer with a unique edge to interpretations of works from Baroque to New Age, a specialist in new compositions and techniques looking to expand the repertoire for the clarinet through various ensemble mixtures and rhythmic complexities. His boundless energy is focused on commissioning works by new composers. His performances are inspiring and completely encompassing, taking audiences to a higher level of experience.
Jere comes across the footlights with powerful musical statements that are inspiring to many. He is an ardent supporter of personal growth and education and shares his life experiences through private coaching with students from around the world. He is also involved in various charitable organizations promoting health and wellbeing. An avid cook, reader, and civic organizer, Jere is a consummate well-rounded person. He is also affiliated with Broadway Cares, St. Judes Children's Research Hospital and the Center for Disease Control.
"Pick your personal mentors and teachers with great care, and with the emphasis on your personal career, not the world of academia," exhorts Jere. "Make your own way, even if it means stepping outside the box. I actually created my own course of study, much to the chagrin of others. I have ended with the appropriate credentials that look nice on a wall-- but the substance behind the paperwork is truly what's important to me."

Jere Douglas is not only a performer of the highest order but he is a consummate professional. With a combination of creativity, technicality and chutzpah his projects are the model the modern-day arts world should look to."
