Dylan JackDylan Jack
Dylan Jack is a percussionist, composer, author, and educator born and raised in Massachusetts. Versatile in all styles, he can be found performing regularly with various groups throughout New England in nighttime establishments, concert halls, etc. Although at home with many genres, Dylan’s heart is in jazz and free improvisation. The freedom to explore in this music can be found throughout his playing and in his teaching philosophy which has a strong emphasis in teaching students to be a musician and not just a drummer.
Dylan holds a Bachelors degree in Percussion Performance from McNally Smith College of Music in Saint Paul, MN where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. He also holds a Masters degree from Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA in Modern American Music where he received the Patricia Sherman Award for outstanding performance, work, and dedication to music.
As an author, Dylan has self-published his own drum-set instruction book entitled “Meters and Accents: A Study in Polyrhythmic and Polymetric Coordination.” It was written n collaboration with his teacher, Marv Dahlgren (Co-author of 4-Way Coordination).
As a composer, Dylan’s work can be heard with his own modern jazz/free group, the Dylan Jack Quartet. For more information on performances, music, etc, visit www.DylanJack.net
