Mike RoseI have to admit it, I'm feeling like a proud parent!  One of my prize students, Mike Rose (aka "The Blues Sheriff"), just had his first album, "New Sheriff in Town" reviewed.  He has been getting radio air play and his review (click on his photo) has me bursting my buttons with pride!

Good teachers care about the welfare of their students and want to see them succeed, and enjoy a healthy career.  Mike went from merely wanting "to achieve vocal mediocrity and be able to perform with consistency in [his] own band" to achieving much, much more through the vehicle of my guidance and his own diligent practice, and mental discipline.

My wish for Mike is that his career continues to grow and his light continues to shine.  I would like to see his successes stack up like the firewood at his ranch.  Keep making me proud, Mike.  Keep right on making me proud!!!  :O)
