Just had to call attention to the day for Jeff and his closest associates: October 2 is a noteworthy date! Charlie Brown turns 62 today. But, of course, “our” Charlie Brown is ageless. May it ever be so!
concerts are always a pleasure, it’s a thrill to watch you seek and promote talent; plus enjoy
your own great talents as well.
Thanks for posting the recordings from the recent James Taylor/Carole King concert. It is great to be able to revisit that wonderful evening. Keep up the great work!
Just dropped by to hear the great music. Well done. Will be back to hear more. (Remark overheard by Mr. Daubenmire at bell choir rehearsal: “Opps, that can’t be right.” Students, take heed: he hears everything, misses nothing, and forgives endlessly!)
What a great memory, Matt. I can assure you, Mr. Daubenmire never forgets a student who is engaged and learning. That his methods still have such lasting effects says a lot about his educational style and commitment to the student. Yes, and he’s still pretty hilarious, tie and all. Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to share your thoughts. Please join him for one of his many upcoming concert dates, where you can take a moment to reminiscence with him in person.
I am sure that Mr. Daubenmire doesn’t remember me, but I took his music theory class back in January of 2007 at Hocking College. He was my favorite teacher out of the entire music program because he didn’t take anything too seriously. He just seemed to be a simple guy that loved to teach music and play music. That had a huge effect on me. My wife (then my girlfriend) took the class together and we still laugh at the funny things that he said in class. Sometimes, he would ask the class a question and no one would answer. So he’d stand there and make random comments about his tie. And he has a huge love for Batman. He and I discussed Batman at length during one class session. Anyways, I wish him nothing but the best. To any students that will have him as a teacher in the future, you won’t be disappointed.
It’s always the smallest and most innocent gestures that have the greatest watershed effects. The simple announcement, the nudge for attendance, the somewhat reluctant appearance, the improbable playing, the consummate skill, then the unexpected, the senses are filled, the heart is lifted and you find yourself thinking of ways to make sure no one ever misses a performance like that in the future. And here we are. I hope the creation of these pages lead many a wandering ear to your music.
