Jacobson Scholars

The Jacobson Music Scholar Program is named in honor of Frank Jacobson, who taught music at PDS from 1967-2000. Mr. Jacobson created the program in 2000 to provide a course of study for students who are serious about music performance or composition and are intending to major or minor in music in college. The scholars must go through a formal application and audition process to be selected for the program. All scholars are required to perform a solo recital as the centerpiece of their work in this program.
