Welcome

This is the official web site of American saxophonist Jonathan Helton, soloist, chamber musician and Professor at the University of Florida.  Thanks for visiting!

I have been playing the saxophone for 40 years. My instrument has taken me all over the world—France, Belgium, England, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Canada, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Thailand, Australia, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, and to twenty of these United States.  I have been teaching others to play the saxophone for over 30 years. My students have secured positions teaching in secondary schools, colleges and universities throughout the Unites States and Asia; they are active performing in professional chamber ensembles, for the Ringling Brothers Circus, and in the premiere U.S. military bands.  I am looking forward to more travels and the chance to share my music and my tricks of the trade with wonderful students and audiences.

Should you need more information regarding concert or residency bookings, or if you would like to know more about saxophone study at the University of Florida, please see the "Contact" page for details on how to reach me

I hope to see you in the concert hall!                  -Jonathan Helton
