Professor Craig Hanemann is a wonderful, talented professional devoting his life to new music composition and to teaching. With a clear, solid foundation in classical music, his compositions are harmoniously rich in strength and gentleness, and the movements are a splendid progression of musical ideas sharply and skillfully combined. In his teaching, he has awoken the basic musical skill sowed in me as a child 40 years ago, and today I am playing what I once thought was only an unreachable dream. It's hard to describe the joy that such a realization means for a man. Thank you always, Mr. Hanemann.
