Jason Jedlicka is adjunct lecturer in music in general studies at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. A native of northeast Ohio, he is also a Ph.D. candidate in music theory at Jacobs.

After completing his bachelor's degree at The Ohio State University in 2004, he returned to the greater Cleveland area, where he taught piano privately and served as musical director for various theatrical productions.

Since coming to IU, Jedlicka's research has centered on minimalist and postminimalist music, particularly that of Steve Reich. His dissertation develops listening strategies for the composer’s very recent music by investigating three principal actions found in each piece. Jedlicka also has interests in popular music, audio technology, video game music, and nineteenth-century keyboard repertoire.

He has presented papers at various regional conferences and at the Society for Minimalist Music's 4th and 5th International Conferences. In the summer of 2013, Jedlicka participated in a computer music workshop at the Institute for Research and Coordination Acoustic/Music in Paris. More recently, he presented work at the Minimalism Unwrapped festival in London during a weekend devoted specifically to Reich's music.

As a teacher, Jedlicka spent five years in the Jacobs School Music Theory Department as an associate instructor, where he taught a wide variety of courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
