“I credit who I am as a musician today to you. As a growing child you were my mentor – a rainbow of inspiration – I have learnt so much from you! …. I (went) to school with people that have had good musical experiences….but mine was insurmountable. You are example of superior musicianship to me. Your infectious love and excitement for music has shaped who I am.”- Conductor of the Cantala Women’s Choir in Toronto, ON., Nancy (Frank) Singla
“You really have been an inspiration this week. I can’t wait to get back home and scour my file cabinets for some really worthwhile music for my choirs and students. It’s given me faith in myself, redefined my classroom expectations. Your work this weekend has not only affected these students but will carry through as I share my inspiration with my own students. Thanks for your teaching, your passion, your dedication, your sense of humour, your high expectations, and what you made happen “in between the notes! I feel so blessed.”
