Arnold Jacobs: His Artistic and Pedagogical Legacies in the 21st Century
- Usually ships in 1 business day
This book explores the evolution of the concepts and skills Arnold Jacobs taught throughout his career as evident in the work of a selected group of his pupils. The authors sought to include divergent performing and pedagogical experiences framed within historical contexts. For example, some of Jacobs’s pupils began lessons in the 1950s and continued until 1998—the year of his passing. Others started their lessons in the 1980s or 1990s, when Jacobs’s teaching had fully evolved. Similarly, the authors aimed at presenting his teaching from the point of view of a variety of instrumentalists—that is, trumpeters, trombonists, hornists, tubists, and woodwind players. As such, this book will serve as a unique and valuable document of the artistic and pedagogical legacies of one of the great brass masters of the 20th century.
