2015 Iowa All-State

Congratulations to Terra Hill of West High School, Iowa City, for being excepted to the Iowa All-State Band for the second year in a row on euphonium.

Another euphonium student, Adam Smart, selected as an alternate from Pella High School. Great Job Adam.

My other students (trombone) also did a great job, but not selected, you all made leaps and bounds improving on your sound, and skill level. I feel optimistic about next year for all of you (Nathan, Halas, and Jamie).

Senior Recital

Tevin completed his senior recital at Cornell College successfully. Congratulations, Tevin! You have come a long way in four years while studying with me at Cornell College and I am glad I had the opportunity to teach and meet you. Keep up the good work, it will go a long way in the future.
