Then this came today through the website: Hi Charley. I am sure you don't remember me. My name is Steven ****, and I took bass lessons from you as a teenager back in 1990 and 1991 (first at focus II and then at your house in Bayside). I am now a 41 year old practicing psychologist. i still play the bass occasionally for fun , and I still remember things you taught me 25 years later. I just wanted to say hello and let you know what a fantastic teacher you were. #testimonial #t
over the 35+ years I have been teaching...only a small percantage have been children..the few I DO teach are AMAZING...I have posted on or two in the past...here is another one...from Sacramento, CA. 14 years old...her performance helped her school win first place in a regional competition...take note..this band sounds better than some college big bands... Sophia just KILLS the bass and the vocals!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjFTVIFppfk #student #young #jazz #avalon #
