J Roe Bio

J Roe is a composer and guitarist currently residing in the Jacksonville area. His passion is artistic expression and creation on any front, but his favored medium is music. He strives to create new and original works. In 2014 he studied classical guitar at the University of West Florida (UWF) under the tutelage of Joe Stallings with guidance from Ricardo Cobo and Thibaut Garcia. During this time he also performed with the UWF big band and jazz combo at the Pensacola Jazz Festival and other Pensacola Jazz Society events. After a fateful composition class, he realized he wanted to be a composer as well as guitarist and transferred to Jacksonville University.

J is currently studying under jazz guitarist Gary Starling and composer Jianjun He while pursuing a double major in jazz & commercial music and composition. He conveys complex ideas and emotions through music and is always looking for a new challenge.

  1. Hi J. I think your bio is great. However, maybe you should include something about yourself other than your academic path. It seems like your reading transcript a little. Let people get to know you a little more. Also the picture header of you website should probably be something to do with you and not a plant.

  2. – I liked his bio, I would take off the “residing in the Jacksonville area”, maybe just say in Jacksonville Florida. Maybe he could say “He is passionate about…” instead of “His passion is artistic expression and creation on any front”. Put “Dr. Jianjun” I would like to see “He conveys complex ideas and emotions through music and is always looking for a new challenge” closer to the beginning.

  3. Nice biography! I think you need to use your name more often rather than simply using “he” repeatedly. Write out and (don’t use &.) Other than that, may add more about your other artistic interest in greater depth.
