Mr. Hatanaka was the teacher that showed me how to listen to everything. He always knew when someone was off key, could hear an instrument being louder than the rest, wanted everyone to have fun, but be dedicated to the instrument that you wanted to play. He was always there yo help, to guide, and just lend an ear. He is one of the most beloved teachers by the students that had the priviledge of being part of any of his music classes.
was one of the greatest teachers i had openened my eyes to music and inspired me to follow his path was like my second dad and i still love him and miss him so much
Best teacher I've ever had. I used to never practice my trumpet and he really inspired me. I learned more from him in 6 months than I did from my 3 previous years of instruction.
Mr. Hatanaka is truly the greatest teacher ever. I never really had a dream of being a musicianist, but in honor of him, I now will. THanx Mr.H for everything, and i now that u r in a bettr placnow!:)
