My name is Allison.  It is impossible to summerize my time with Mr. Holland in only a couple sentences.  He has been part friend, part parent, and part teacher to me.  I have been taking lessons for almost seven years now and have enjoyed every second of it.  Although I have no plans to major in trumpet, that doesn’t matter to him.  He has always stressed that learning trumpet is much more than just learning how to play the trumpet itself. 

I have learned so much from him and I know I have grown as a person as well as a trumpet player.  I am now not only a better trumpet player but more confident and happier in every way.  Mr. Holland is the best teacher I will ever have and I am so thankful I have had the chance to work with him.  

Thank you for teaching me today, Mr. Holland!
