Thank you so much for being my teacher, even though I feel it was much too short of a time I was taking lessons with you, it has improved me as a drummer very much and I can't wait to see how I'll use these skills in my videos and other situations.
Carl told us early on that he wanted to major in music at college. However, since neither my husband nor I have any music background we were completely useless in that stage of Carl’s life. You, on the other hand, gave Carl excellent advice and helped him navigate the process of applying and auditioning at colleges. It is not an exaggeration to say that Carl is where he is because of you. He is THRIVING at Eastern – he loves the program, the professors, the process and is excelling in all his classes. Later he told me that he was glad that we found you when we did because even a year earlier he wasn’t sure he would have had the maturity and focus it took to have lessons with you. You came along at the right time.
