Wanting to increase his musical range he transferred to the University of North Carolina in Wilmington where he was graduated with a BA in Music Performance. While continuing to study voice, Jamey learned piano and keyboard, bass, drums, and increased his skills on the guitar. He performed lead roles in several musicals at the Thalian Association, the North Carolina State Theater, and performed at local venues as singer and musician. During this time in Wilmington, NC, Jamey began to work with people of all ages through the Episcopal Church, the Wilmington Academy of Arts and Science, and on the UNCW college campus. Here he developed his skills as a music director, leader, and a teacher providing various musical groups with historical and geographical understanding of musical heritage. Here, to the thrill of parents and students alike, he taught students with private lessons and with the “Rock Band” experience. Students were quick to see the benefit of learning new skills and parents loved the enthusiasm exhibited with these new skills in live venues. He has received many awards and recognition for his work as vocalist, musician and actor. But feels that the greatest reward is being able to pass on these skills to others as teacher.
