This book showcases a teaching career that has become legendary."-James Scott, dean of the College of Music, University of North Texas

"The principle that pervades my entire educational philosophy did not come from education or psychology classes; it did not come from the many sermons preached by my Dad and hundreds of other pulpiteers. It came from John Haynie's studio."-Douglas Smith, Mildred and Ernest Hogan Professor of Music, Southern Baptist Theological SeminaryAUTHOR.
