Violinist Jack Liebeck has taken on the role of Émile Sauret Professor of Violin, a new role at the Royal Academy of Music, which was created especially for him.
Émile Sauret (May 22, 1852 – February 12, 1920) is recognised as one of the most significant influences on the development of violin pedagogy. He taught at the Royal Academy of Music at the turn of the 19th Century and had a distinguished performing and composing career
This new role for Mr Liebeck, will give him the chance to promote and champion the Academy and its string teaching, and to develop a strong link between the Academy’s teachers and RAM’s potential future students
He will be participating in auditioning, examining and coaching, and will be fully involved in the development and delivery of the degree programme. As an alumnus of the Royal Academy of Music, he said he is looking forward to continuing this long-standing relationship with RAM.
To mark the occasion, he will give a Violin Masterclass in the Angela Burgess Recital Hall at the Royal Academy of Music today (January 13) from 4pm-7pm.
