About Dr. Trevor Jones MA PhD ARAM FRAM
At 17, Trevor was awarded a Scholarship from the Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Town, Dr J.P.

Amongst other Prizes at the RAM he won the criticism prize for music and was appointed Classical Music Reviewer for BBC Radio & Television, a full –time post he held for four years and continued for a further two years, part-time while he pursued his graduate studies at York University, England.

Under the mentorship of Professor Wilfrid Mellers (“Twilight of the Gods: the Beatles in Retrospect”; “Man and his Music” etc), he studied Jazz, Pop, Rock, Folk, Ethnic Music, (including Balinese, Javanese & Indian), Avant Garde 20th Century music, Electronic Music, and Acoustics and received a BA Hons. and an MA in the relationship of Image and Music.

He became the first Composer to attend the National Film and Television School in England having completed 23 student film scores, and studying production, direction, sound, cinematography, and editing.

His pioneering work with the fusion of Acoustic and Electronic sounds set the benchmark for film and television scores.

He has collaborated with David Bowie, Sting, U2, Sinead O’Connor, Charlotte Church, Britney Spears and Elvis Costello and has been a jury member for BAFTA, the Mercury Music Prize and the International Film Festival of Flanders, Ghent.
