Jack Klotz, Jr. is a producer / engineer, musician, consultant, the creator and Director of a Recording Industry concentration in Temple University’s Klein College of Media and Communication, and was part of the team that developed the Philadelphia region’s first degree program for music technology and business. His varied career has included projects with several Grammy®-nominees, legends of R&B and jazz, an Emmy® Award-winning experimental video program, a Barrymore Award-winning Theater company, a Peabody Award-winning Radio program, and even traditional Japanese music. He has contributed to several texts, including Recording In The Digital World and The iPad in the Music Studio (Hal Leonard / Berklee Press), and presented to the French National Institutes for the Blind, The National Council for the Blind of Ireland, and other institutions. Jack believes deeply in the unifying power of music and has a decided interest in promoting international and cross-cultural understanding, and has made “second homes” in London and Tokyo.  In service of that goal, he also serves as Klein’s Academic Director for Global Opportunities where he oversees the college’s many off-campus, experiential learning programs as well as a concentration and minor in International Communication. He also served for six years on the Board of Governors of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy® Awards organization.
