My Teacher – Remembering Marcel Moyse contains a humorous, charming collection of 54 stories, interspersed with cartoons, drawings, photos and quotes of the French master flutist and teacher, Marcel Moyse, whose life and work have inspired many to become great teachers and performers. Also included are quotes by Albert Einstein, Henry David Thoreau, Piet Mondrian, Samuel Goldwyn, Duke Ellington and others. The stories, occurring in the Midwest, Vermont, Europe and California, flow effortlessly from the author’s first meeting with him in Oberlin, Ohio until his death in 1984. While many books have been written about his accomplishments and life, it is the author’s desire that readers will wish they had known this man. At 174 pages, it is for students, professionals and the public.
