“As Cultural Arts Chairperson for Caroline Street Elementary School, I have NEVER gotten such great feedback and vibes from the children, teachers and parents about any other program I’ve brought in. Jack is unbelievably great with the children and, with their input, is gifted in bringing ideas to a wonderful fruition.”

— Karen Ricci

“All of the first graders at Caroline Street School were thrilled to spend an entire week with Jack. He flawlessly integrated music, character education and the writing process. Each class actively participated in the creation of their own song and music video. It was so much fun that they have asked when he will be visiting us again. Jack’s positive influence will inspire the children to be all that they can be!”

— The Caroline Street teachers and children

“Working with Jack was fantastic. He had an instant and natural connection with my students and taught them much more than the songs they composed together. He included advice about what being a working musician is like and how to be an individual no matter what your talents are. The final product was tailored to the style of our school community and Jack’s amazing musicianship created an authenticity that keeps the music alive. The collaboration throughout the process was a life-lesson that the students will not forget.”
