Mr. Rozzi's Opus

I Googled my 6th grade band teacher who had an enormous empact on my life and found him! He has a Jazz band in Atlanta. I even found his email address! I'm going to email him and thank him. I'm actually a little bit nervous about it. What if he doesn't remember me? He was my teacher for 3 years and pushed me really hard, harder than I liked actually, but he saw something in me that I didn't, and made me the very best in my section. He would sign me up for competitions and constantly challenged me. I thought he was picking on me sometimes, but as I've gotten older, I've wanted to thank him a thousand times, but didn't know how. Especially since he'd moved and no one seemed to know where. He created the musical foundation I needed to move on to band and eventually singing in high school. Music is in my soul thanks to him.

Just thought I'd share.
