Jack grew up in the state of Iowa with a passion for music. After studying percussion for two years at The University of Iowa, he transferred to The Berklee College of Music where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Composition. He started off teaching drum set in the Lexington and Belmont areas and there he found his calling as a teacher. Relocating to the northern suburbs of New York City, he began teaching privately. He was also hired as a percussion specialist at school districts in Scarsdale and Bedford, NY. Over the span of thirty-eight years, more one hundred seventy of his students were named to Westchester All County Bands/Orchestras and NY All State Bands/Orchestras. During this period, a number of his students also received music scholarships and continued on to graduate from Berklee College of Music, Yale, New England Conservatory of Music, Hartt School of Music, Miami’s Frost School of Music, and USC. As leader of the jazz, rock, blues group Reverend Zen, Jack was the recipient of seventy-five global music industry awards for their album Angels, Blues and the Crying Moon. Awards included 2006 Finalist VH-1 Song of the Year Contest, 2007 Artist of the Year Los Angeles Music Awards and five ASCAP Plus Awards. Jack and Reverend Zen received additional awards in NYC, St. Louis, Portland, Washington DC, Denver, Toronto, London, Paris, Australia, and Spain. After nearly forty years in New York, Jack desired a more laid back, less hectic lifestyle. In late 2019 he relocated to the greater Springfield area where he has continued his teaching career and is now pleased to be a member of the Falcetti teaching staff!

My Approach to Teaching

“Over my years teaching, I’ve become comfortable teaching all levels of drums to all ages of students. I strive to show patience, positivity, and reinforcement to each student. A lesson typically entails technique, reading, drum set, and playing along with recordings. All lessons are tailored to each student’s age, ability, and taste. For drummers involved with their school band, I’m happy to communicate with their band director and assist them with any of their school music, competitions, or college auditions. Whether a nine year old beginner, a high school senior preparing for a college audition or an adult playing in a garage band, I will do my utmost to help you.”
