Jack Brown started learning the trumpet at six years old and the guitar at eight, although he eventually became most interested in the piano which he began lessons with at twelve years old. He studied a Bachelor of Music degree and a Master of Music degree in Performance and Related Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London where he participated in a variety of ensembles and formed multiple collaborations. He was often asked to play for performance classes, lessons, and exams.
Jack achieved a distinction for his Master of Performance degree in Collaborative Piano at the Royal College of Music. During his study there, he took part in the New Perspectives Orchestra, RCM Symphony Orchestra, RCM Philharmonic Orchestra, the 2021 Keyboard Festival, as well as numerous recitals and competitions with singers and instrumentalists. He was chosen as a finalist in the 2022 Joan Chissell Schumann Competition.
During his years of study in London, Jack was also a freelance musician. This involved teaching piano, accompanying graded exams, accompanying choir rehearsals, as well as a variety of other musical activities. He was also a regular accompanist for the services of New Unity in Newington Green, where he gave a piano-violin duo recital exploring the works of composers from underprivileged backgrounds. Jack is excited to bring his range of expertise to the music department of Marlborough College.
