'uture Musical Leaders

(f9

By BENNY GOODMAN
ITOR'S NOTE: The following
le by Mr. Goodman was written
isively for American college and
ersity newspapers.
dership in musical progress
advancement of musicianship
come from. America's new
of university men and wo-
e come to realize the impor-
tof this fact during my six-
h stay in California. During
months I have had occasion
rk with and to observe many
e new college bred musicians,
have learned the true extent
e campus influence on mo-
American music.
ds in Music
st, let's take the trends of
c. It is the endorsement of
us people across the country
seals the fate of new music.
in the twenties and the wild
e days, we led into an era
ether fantastic musical ar-
'ments.
e more serious nature of to-
university students is re-
d in today's music. The best
nost acceptable must have a
ed perfection to meet approv-
the critical college group.
ians who fail to recognize
1o not last long at the top,
ey ever get there.
n't misunderstand me. I have
:e to grind with the musician
never went to college. I had
:llege education myself, for
matter. But I feel strongly
wve are getting an increasingly
r type of musician from the
e group. They not only un-
and the pulse of today's mu-
etter, but they are helping to
the level of all popular music.
c and Emotion
ere was a time when the mu-
xpression of America came
arily from the violent emo-
of large groups of under-
eged people.
t America has come far. The
lard of living of the entire
ry has been raised. The na-
suffered the pains of yet an-
great war, but the growth
nued. Today we have more
e attending universities than
before. These influences are
dy being felt in the music
nerica, and more and more
ust look to the university ed-
d to help us give adequate
;retation to that, music.
at is why I feel sure that a
part of my next band will be
- up of university-educated
:ians. They are the young
of the day. They are ones
must give voice to the emo-
of a people whose standard
ing is higher than any others
e world. They are the ones
nust give us leadership.

Collegians Aid Growth
Many college musicians have al-
ready played a part in this musical
growth. Some good examples are
Woody Herman, Marquette Uni-
versity; Les Brown, Duke Univer-
sity; Jimmie Lunceford, Fisk Uni-
versity; Paul Weston, Dartmouth
College and Columbia University;
and Fred Waring, Pennsylvania

State College. The University of
Noi'th Carolina produced Hal
Kemp, John Scott Trotter, Jan
Garber, Skinnay Ennis and Kay
Kyser. ,
In addition to the musicians
themselves, the reactions from
American campus groups are
powerful influences. We who play
the music may play as we feel,
but your reactions to our music
give us the guide to our success
at interpretation. If we miss, we
hearabout it. If our musicianship
is good, your critical reports tell
us.
Sometimes I am asked what my
advice to a young musician would
be. The old saw about lots of
hard work is always good, but
possibly more important still is
the recommendation to play the
music as you feel it.
Similarly,,the future of Ameri-
can music depends upon the free-
dom of college and university peo-
ple to express themselves ABOUT
music, even though they are not
musicians. We must have their
true reactions in order to give
them the music that is truly ex-
pressive of the modern American
spirit.
