Mr. Hurst was definitely one of the most important figures in my life. I still create music regularly and an immense portion of my skill set is due to his commitment to having a great school band.
He was a strict teacher but that discipline is what made us good. And after class he was always there to help.
Very tough, but excellent. The band was always top tier. Big loss for Glenwood.
He was a perfectionist which created one of the best bands ever to come out of Glenwood. He did get down on people at times. Too serious at times. Overall, band was fun.
I thought he was stuck on himself. The band was great, but didin't like him.
Mr. Hurst is driven to perfection and brings his band with. We were the best.
