I wish that i could remember the last name of the man i took 1 year of private lessons from "Troy" when i lived in Pennsylvania, PA. He was a senior then I was freshman. He honestly had so much influence to who I am today. Thank you Troy where ever you may be brother. And thank you as well to all I have mentioned above. I was getting all the free lessons I could from you all and still do..
