Last week I took my 90-year-old mother to the TBJH band concert to hear her granddaughter play. All we could say was wow. Ray Reynolds needs to be commended for the wonderful job he does with so many band students. It is truly remarkable. You can tell that Ray really enjoys what he does, he gives the band students credit for their accomplishments and publishes it, yet he gets very little credit himself. I have three great musicians because of the patience, talent and expertise of Ray Reynolds, Mike Moors and Brian Carter and all three music educators need to be recognized.
