Quamon Fowler grew up in Fort Worth, Texas.  He studied music in elementary, junior high, and high school, and began composing music at the age of fifteen.  He earned first chair tenor saxophone in the All-State Jazz Ensemble in 1998 and twice won the NAACP ACT-SO competition.  Quamon attended Weatherford College and a year later felt he needed to expand his music studies, so he decided to attend Southern University in Baton Rouge, LA.  There he studied with world-renown jazz clarinetist, Alvin Batiste.  At Mr. Batist's urging, Quamon produced an independent CD project in July of 2000.  "Introducing Quamon Fowler" combined jazz and soul to create a unique sound while reflecting his own musical expertise as a developing artist.  In the spring of 2001 Quamon was selected by Very Special Arts as a Panasonic Young Soloist.  This award allowed him to perform at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.  He was twice selected to be a part of the Betty Carter Jazz Ahead Program.  Quamon is a hard-working, multi-tasking traveling performer, composer and student.  In 2004 Quamon finished his Music degree from Southern University and recorded a CD "The Vision", and started his Master's degree at Texas Tech University in Lubbock.  He won the North American Saxophone Alliance Jazz Competition in Des Moines, Iowa.  As a teaching assistant at Texas Tech, he taught small groups, jazz improv, and toured with Curtis Fuller and Marcus Belgrave, James Moody and Nathan Davis, and other artists nationally and internationally.  Quamon competed in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition in 2008 in which he won third place.  He currently teaches Jazz Saxophone at the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and online via Skype.  His jazz education site is www.jasswebshed.com
