I never said thank you for your inspiration, passion for teaching and sense of humour, which lead me to where I am today. Your words of wisdom still come out of my mouth when I am teaching my students and I thank you for that. You put up with me in your classes, concert band & productions. I feel privileged to call you a colleague in the world of music teaching. You encouraged me to do better and when I came to you for advice after I had left school, you told me to get on with it and stop being lazy. I took your advice. Thank you.
