Barry is great when you study with him. He puts so much heart into it and has this incredible way of getting to know his students really well.

I've studied with him on and off for about 15yrs. One time in Rome, there was a jam session with Barry on piano. A bunch of us were playing Yardbird Suite and Barry just hears everything. i played this stupid thing I'd been working on in 5th bar of the A Section, and he clocked it immediately. Every time we got to that part of the form he called across the crowd (it was packed) to me and nodded. I've never messed that bar up again! He's really funny, and very kind.

We once had Barry come in to talk to Middle School kids at a school in London where I was Band Director-the kids adored him, but the teachers didn't get it. I laughed at that :)
