Hi I'm Jon Schmidt

Professional musician, father of 5, goof ball

About Me

My favorite hobby is raising kids. Here is an official "artist bio" Audiences worldwide are taking notice of Jon Schmidt. Often labeled "New Age" Jon has created a hybrid of music that is equal parts classical, contemporary and rock and roll. Jon describes it as "solo piano combining Billy Joel, Beethoven, Linus and Lucy". With over 5 million hits on youtube, eight highly popular albums, seven volumes of original piano scores that fly off the shelves, Jon's music has proven itself to be a hit. Pianists from all over the world email and thank Jon for writing music that keeps them playing. From the classical piano stylings of the wildly popular "Waterfall" which Jon wrote as a teenager to the Rock 'n' Roll hybrid "Pachelbel meets U2," Jon has been able to find a pure sound that is distinctly his own. While Jon sees himself as an American artist, his music has touched people the world over, as anyone can see from the response to his music online. As Reuben Evans, a UK fan states, "Jon is Awesome! Simply brilliant. The sort of music that stops you dead and demands that you listen." Jon's music has crossed generations as well, as M. Durrell from Kansas states, "my husband AND my grandchildren enjoy Jon's music — it states volumes of the reach to all ages..." Listen to all of Jon's music for free at http//www.jonschmidt.com/

Why I am a Mormon

Grandparents on both sides joined the Church in Germany. They literally survived on miracles during the hard times of World War 2. So much to say about this. Not enough space.

How I live my faith

More than anything, it has taught me how to turn to God for help with any and all problems. Music problems, fatherhood problems, life problems.
