Last night while watching a special on the music of Tim Burton movies with my grandmother, I reflected on the amazing experience of being in band at Golden West with Mr. Tipton as the teacher. That was 1995. 20 years later, after high school and college masters degree... Mr. Tipton is still the first to come to mind as the best teacher ever... Always smiling even when he was mad :)

I've known Mr.Tipton for 3 years now and he's definitely been a big influence in my life. He tutors free of charge, is dedicated to the bands, and very humorous. Can any other teacher do that? Nope.

He's probably the best eacher at Vanden, really nice, always helpful, and a lot of fun. I think he also realizes the Alto Saxes are the best section, 'cause he has us bail out the struggling sections!
