“Knowledge: It is not a justification of pride but a palace of comfort” Driven by this self prescribed motto, a passion for the arts and entertainment, and an unparalleled natural ability, Jacques Anthony Bell has become one of Atlanta’s best kept secrets in entertainment. Known as the “Jacques” of all trades, he has grown to encompass a multifaceted range of talents from Music to Visual Arts and Dance. Originally from Montego Bay Jamaica, Mr. Bell relocated to Brooklyn, New York where at a tender age he began to exhibit a noticeable love for the arts. Years later he again relocated to his current home of Atlanta, Georgia where as a high school student he was Principal Oboist of the Dekalb Youth Symphony Orchestra, selected for the GMEA ALL-STATE Bands, and received countless accolades as an instrumentalist while performing in some of Georgia’s most accomplished student and professional ensembles. This foundation in music was further augmented at the University of Georgia’s Hugh Hodgson School of Music in Athens, Georgia where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Music Education and became a highly sought-after woodwind specialist and clinician. Mr. Bell continues to instruct and perform in various capacities with elementary, high school, college, and professional musicians and has been a
touring woodwind specialist with the new -Columbia Artist Management- Production “DrumLine Live”. His work has been captured in a variety of mediums from film and stage to professional recording studios. Mr. Bell attributes his success as a musician and instructor to his strong foundation in the fundamentals of music and is driven by the belief that there is always more to learn. This sentiment is quite evident though the success of the students in his private lesson studio. Jacques continues to be highly motivated in perfecting his craft and is currently the Principal Saxophonist of the Atlanta Wind Symphony.
