“Ed, I would like to thank you, and commend you for the dedication and superior training you provided to my son, Sterling.  Sterling joined your studio young and lacking confidence in his drumming.  You had great enthusiasm to keep him inspired and motivated yet, held him accountable to reach your expectations.  He gained incredible strides working with you in all aspects of percussion!!!  Also, you were a strong, respected leader resident teaching the students at The Denver School of the Arts.  I would highly refer you to anyone seeking a quality, talented and over all good person who truly cares about his students to join your drumming studio.”
