Student Reviews

Raleigh, NC

I was taught clarinet and then trumpet by Mr Lombard over 40 years ago at P.S. 83 elementary school in NYC. He thought I had a great deal of promise and during the summer I took private lessons in which I got into more advanced music. At the time Michael Jackson. Because of his influence on me I continued to play at I.S. 29. There we performed Latin music like Santana's Oye Como Va. Unfortunately I moved to Florida as a youngster and the music we performed was big band music and lost my interest. Wish I had not given up. I then made sure my daughters played piano, both played competitively. Til this day I still love music with a passion! At 59 just made contact with my daughters teacher and am planning on picking trumpet back up as I still own one or possibly piano. I made a big impression on my life. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a teacher.
