Jahn is currently pursuing his Bachelor of Music in Music Composition at Arizona State University where he studies under the direction of Dr. Rodney Rogers, Dr. Doug Harbin, Dr. Jody Rockmaker, Dr. James DeMars, and Dr. Kotoka Suzuki. He has had works premiered by students at the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, the Arizona Repertory Singers, and the Mosaic saxophone quartet, including a premiere at the North American Saxophone Alliance Region 2 Conference in 2015. Jahn has developed a strong interest in extended techniques for the clarinet, expanding on ideas presented in works by composers such as William O. Smith and Eric Mandat. In addition to several works for clarinet, Jahn has written works for ensembles such as the brass quintet, saxophone quartet, string quartet, full SATB choir, and film, including the score to the full-length feature film, “Lucky U Ranch” directed by Steve Anderson. He continues to expand his compositional techniques with plans to write for more upcoming films, electronic media, and other chamber ensembles.
