    Jack Forman


    Jack Forman is a longtime musician for kids and family audiences. He's released three albums under his own name and fourteen more with his teacher trio band Recess Monkey. Jack and the band have earned national acclaim for pitch-perfect understanding of childhood, and their seamless ability to adapt these themes for the entire family. Jack has hosted "Live From the Monkey House" since 2013, and before that was a regular contributor to SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live for several years. Before that, he spent thirteen years as an elementary school classroom teacher before leaving teaching to pursue family music and radio full-time. Jack continues to work tirelessly in the field of education: he has served on non-profit boards, has spoken on several music and education panels about music’s impact on kids, and is a champion of the kind of high quality independent music being made right this minute across the country. He and his wife have two kids and serve at the pleasure of their feline overlord, a particularly cantankerous tabby cat named Fred Rogers.
