That’s something I have carried with me always. Discipline and technical skills came from Donald McGinnis, precision and piccolo excellence from Jack Wellbaum, musical interpretation and inspiration, desire for excellence, work ethic—significant things came from each teacher. It is my happiness to share what I have learned with my students."
