A native of Naperville, Illinois, Jack Murray began training in classical piano at the age of four. For the past four years, Jack has led an impressive career in the audio industry.
Before joining the faculty at The Chicago Academy for the Arts, Jack was involved in numerous recording, live sound, and televised productions during which he worked alongside local stars, national touring acts, and seasoned music legends.
After high school, Jack attended the University of St. Francis where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. A protégé of Jeff Jaskowiak, the architect and director of the school’s groundbreaking Digital Audio Recording Arts program, Jack worked in and served as a teaching assistant in that department.
During his time at St. Francis, Jack also wrote compositions for a private sync licensing group which saw airtime on networks such as ABC and ESPN.
As someone who is actively involved in the music industry and the technology surrounding it, Jack will work with students to not only inspire them to follow their dreams, but also to empower them with the tools and knowledge necessary to make those dreams a reality in the ever-changing music industry.
