Book Review: Lost Secrets of Master Musicians: A Window Into Genius By David Jacobson


Lost Secrets of Master Musicians: A Window Into Genius
By David Jacobson



If one is truly into music, Lost Secrets of Master Musicians: A Window Into Genius by David Jacobson is probably a book for you.


The first part of the book reads like an autobiography. We then switch gears to learning what master musicians used to be like and to an explanation of why we no longer have them.


Lost Secrets of Master Musicians takes a look at some observations Jacobson has made over his many years in the business.

This book isn’t for everyone.  However, if you are a serious musician, you will want to read it.

We give Lost Secrets of Master Musicians all five stars. It is well-written and very well-researched.  Jacobson has created illustrations that are simple to follow with only a basic understanding of music theory.

If you are a string musician, you simply have to read this. Any person with a curiosity about classical music will want to read Lost Secrets of Master Musicians as well.

What challenge are you grateful for? 

The first challenge that came to my mind is a blogging challenge - the A to Z Blogging Challenge - that happens every April.  I can’t think of any trial-like challenges that I am grateful for at the moment.
 
Thank you, Heavenly Father, for the A to Z Blogging Challenge.

What tradition are you grateful for?

I am grateful for the tradition of Thanksgiving, Miracle on 34th Street, and It’s a Wonderful Life.

I have very fond memories of Thanksgiving at my granny’s house and sure do miss those days! She’s gone on now to her reward in Heaven, so that tradition doesn’t continue.

We have watched the movies every year during the Thanksgiving/Christmas season for as long as I can remember. I think that one will continue for a very long time.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for memories of Thanksgivings with Granny and for great movies to watch during the Thanksgiving/Christmas season.

What story are you grateful for?

I am grateful for the story that my granny told me about the fried chicken dinner when she was a little girl.  

Though it was a painfully sad story, it helped me to learn a bit more about how she came to be the granny that I knew. Each thing that I learned about her life - good or bad - helped me to understand and love her even more.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for allowing Granny to share that painful story with me.

 What song are you most grateful for?

The song that meant the most to me as a little girl growing up in church was The Old Rugged Cross. It is a simple song that says so much - He died for me. He suffered for me. He loved me.

“Then He'll call me some day to my home far away, Where his glory forever I'll share.”

What better song, what better promise, could there be?

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for that old rugged cross and all that it was, is, and is to come.
