Aurora Symphony has a new Principal Trombone

This should not come as news to anyone keeping up with the Events page, but I was offered the Principal chair of the Aurora Symphony Orchestra. It has been an exciting season so far, especially since the Music Director search has given us a different conductor for each concert. Join us for our final concert in May!

Jacobs Family Plus One

I am proud to announce the birth of my second daughter, Elizabeth Jacobs, on July 2, 2012! She is teeny tiny and it is so cute to watch her big sister experience having someone smaller than her. Mother and baby are both doing fine.

Ready To Teach In Colorado

Hello everyone! I am now posting to you from my new location in Centennial, Colorado! It has been a crazy few weeks as we have been moving in, organizing seemingly endless boxes, and making our living space feel like home instead of one giant storage container.

I am now fully ready to begin teaching trombone lessons, euphonium lessons, tuba lessons, and to coach brass chamber ensembles. As I have just moved here and the school year is about to start, I am offering several discounts to new students. Visit the Specials page and the Lessons/Coaching page for the latest deals and lesson options.

I am looking forward to contributing to the students of music in the great state of Colorado!

Moving to Colorado

Unfortunately my circumstances have changed more than I had hoped, forcing me to leave Utah and move to Colorado at the end of June. I have had many good experiences while I’ve been here and will miss all of my friends and colleagues. I will miss teaching at BYU and performing with the Orchestra at Temple Square, two of the many wonderful organizations I have been blessed to work with during my stay in Utah.

I will no longer be able to accept new contract students in Utah, but will offer individual lessons at contract rates as scheduling permits.

Thank you to everyone for the memorable time it has been.

Welcome to the newest Jacobs!

I am proud to announce the birth of my daughter, Evangeline, on March 21. It has been a crazy few days, but both she and my wife are doing very well.
