You are a great teacher. Musicianship can be such an intimidating class, but you somehow help us to make it through. I have enjoyed being in your class and truly feel like I am a better musician for it. Thank you for pushing us, we wouldn't have made it this far without you. You were always so encouraging. I know that I have definitely improved throughout the year, thanks to you. -- Note from student.
