PAS Hall of Fame. I am very happy and proud of this, but I also know he is a great musician, a clever teacher, and a wonderful man. Born in September ofhe is now retired from the Orchestre de Paris and from the Conservatoire de Paris, but he is still composing music, giving master classes, and participating on juries of many exams, auditions, and competitions.
He divides his time between Paris, his country house near Paris, and the south of France near the Mediterranean in summer. Jacques first started to study piano and was a very gifted pianist, a very good student, and an excellent musician. He received the First Prize at the Conservatoire de Paris in best of the competitionwith better results than many students who became great and famous soloists, such as Philippe Entremont.
A couple of years before, Jacques started to study percussion with Felix Passerone, principal timpanist of the Paris Opera and teacher at the Conservatoire of Paris— the master of an entire generation of famous French percussionists. Injust one week before he got the First Prize for piano, Jacques also received the Second Prize for percussion.
At the Conservatoire of Paris, Jacques also studied harmony, counterpoint, and composition, and he received the First Prize for percussion in It was then that he chose to become a percussionist and timpanist. However, he started to play percussion again very soon and, returning to his first professional passion, he became timpanist of the orchestra in —but he still played piano, too!
When he was teaching at the Conservatoire of Paris, he was playing all the piano accompaniments and playing them much better than most of the pianists you have to play with in auditions! Years after I left the Paris Conservatory, I sometimes asked Jacques to play the orchestra score reduced for the piano with me when I was preparing to play concertos with orchestras as a soloist.
He was the best pianist and coach I could ever find! One can often see people in tuxedos playing some of them on stage!
Percussionists had to study from orchestral excerpts, military drum books, and a couple of low-level standard pieces. From nothing, he built a real school for percussion and created a pedagogical repertoire for snare drum, xylophone, timpani, and vibraphone. There is a good reason that most of these books are still in use today all around the world.

Like many of his works, these etudes are inspired by the orchestral repertoire. These are the reasons for the success of his works. Many players can play it slower, but the real pedagogical and musical interest is at the exact tempo.
Each etude has its own musical character and has to be played not only with a perfect technique but also with a real musical expression.
Keisleiriana 1 in and Keisleiriana 2 inboth published by Alphonse Leduc. In these etudes, the reference to orchestral repertoire is even more evident.
The musicality is always the central point of the compositions, and this is why these books are so different and so appreciated all over the world. So when I wrote my own snare drum etudes Snare SystemI was inspired de,ecluse all I got from him during all these years, and I submitted my works to him before publication.
He gave me very precious advice and suggestions.
I always keep in mind how Jacques taught me and so many students in France: In only two short pages, it contains everything one needs to know about snare drum playing! This is why this piece is very popular and requested in many exams and auditions. I recommend to my students that they eudes it every day.
