Jim Jacobs

Tasty Jazz for Any Occasion

At 6, Jim started trumpet by observing his older sister’s group lessons. He led his first band as a Cub Scout project. His first gig as a “ringer” in a local junior high’s band was paid in pizza. Not much has changed. At 12, Jim discovered his passion with the Highland Park Pops where he can still be heard over 40 years later. Jim performed at Lincoln Center, The Montreux Jazz Festival, and toured Europe with Jazz Abroad. After graduating with honors from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Jim did studio work, performed at churches, and in bands and pit orchestras in and around Chicago. In 2003, he started teaching brass at Prairie Crossing Charter School in Grayslake. For two years, Jim taught instrumental music at St Anastasia Catholic School in Waukegan. Currently, Jim is the director of bands at PCCS.
