“Scoring and Orchestration”

Ron Jones for over 37 years has dedicated himself to the art of composing. Most of his creative work has involved scoring music for TV and Film projects, produced by both major Hollywood studios and independent production companies.

After getting his degree in music composition and music theory, Ron moved directly to Los Angeles, and he went on to composed many of the main title themes of animated TV series like Hanna-Barbera’s, “The Smurfs,” “Scooby-Doo,” and “The Snorks”. He went on to do the scoring for Disney’s, “Duck Tales,” and later went on to write the theme for “Fairly Oddparents” series and won BMI’s TV and Film award for being the most performed theme on Television for an amazing three years in a row. With Seth MacFarlane, Mr. Jones has worked on the TV series’ “Family Guy” and “American Dad”, being pushed to create nearly every possible musical style and genre of scoring.

Along with animated series Ron worked on a number of live action TV series. He worked with Mike Post and Pete Carpenter, writing for shows such as: “The A-Team,” “Magnum P.I.,” “Hardcastle and McCormick,” “Riptide,” “Hunter” and more. This work combined a wide variety of styles, fusing Pop and Rock elements into scores. Ron also worked on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” Scoring “Star Trek” offered a perfect opportunity for Ron to use all the experience he had amassed over his career. Ron further developed the “Star Trek” music in his scores for the groundbreaking computer games “StarFleet Academy” and “StarFleet Command,” the first to use a full studio orchestra for the score. “StarFleet Academy” won the best score award from the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences.
