JT Buck is a music and theatre ‘jack of all trades’, with 20 years’ professional experience as a director, playwright, composer, lyricist, music director, producer, teacher and cross-discipline collaborator. His latest musical is ‘The Devil’s Milk Part 2: Goosetown”, currently running in rep at the Balch St. Theatre. He will serve as music director for the Rocky Horror Show at the Civic this August.
His passion for authentic community conversation led him to study the ‘Art of Hosting’ suite of group conversation/decision-making tools.
A committed meditator, he’s passionate about teaching mindfulness-based applications to the creative process in the form of piano lessons, professional coaching and group classes. He’s available for private coachings and will be offering a series of public workshops in the coming year.
Another major thread in his work is the ‘Akron story’…history, present and future. He often serves as a historical consultant across disciplines.
When not doing the above things, he sleeps. Mostly on Monday.
