“I hope you enjoyed playing with the choir on Sunday. You sounded wonderful.  I also direct a contemporary choir at St. Dominic's Catholic Church. I hope to work with you again someday with either one of the choirs.”


“...I really really appreciate your performance. It created such a peaceful atmosphere at our party. I remember this for a long time. I know everyone loved your performance.”


“Thanks for doing a great job!”



“I want to thank you so much for your guidance and instruction.  I feel that I have some new skills that will help me accomplish what I was looking for - the ability to play along with my son and sound OK doing so. Thanks again for your great instruction.”


“Thank you ever so much for your great kindness in answering my letter.  I had come across the Kincaid and Rubank, and had gotten them, but not the Kujalad and Altes, so I've ordered them.  It looks like they will be a big help!  Also was interested in all of the other ideas in your letter!!”


“I can't thank you enough for coming to school and sharing yourself and your knowledge of recorders with our third graders.  Many of them remarked about how neat it was to see all the different recorders and hear them played. Some never realized that the recorder was a real instrument. They thought it was just for kids. I've now had several students earn their white belts.“


“[A]t dinner last night the triplets couldn't stop talking about [Marian's] visit.  It was a HUGE hit.  Please thank her for us!”


“Thank you for your music on Monday, it was 'spot-on.' The custom music sheet was an especially nice touch.”


“Thanks for coming to Lower Merion High School. You are always inspiring and knowledgeable about what you do so well. All the best.”
