Jack is truly a
“Jack of All Trades”. His music career began with an undergraduate
degree in Music Education from nearby West Chester University, (1972).
He was a high school band director for 9 years (in the PA public school
system) while earning the degree of Master of Music (composition)
from Temple University, (1981). Private teaching, instrument repair, and
piano tuning were summertime diversions during those years but,
ultimately, these skills were to become a full-time replacement for
public school teaching. He later completed the extensive testing
procedures to become a Registered Craftsman with the Piano Technicians
Guild. From 1997-2004, Jack was head piano technician / tuner with
Taylor’s Music Store-keyboard division in West Chester, PA and has done
tuning, repairs, and rebuilding for 6 other area music stores as well.
Since 1972, piano work has occupied a very large part of Jack's
life. In his ‘spare’ time, Jack enjoys bowling. Recently, his life-long
dream of a perfect 300 game was missed by one pin, but he insists that a
"299" tells a "more interesting story"!
