29: This has been a great three years for all of us. Some of us will be ending our journeys sooner than others, but many will continue on and become better musicians. And though all of us are very different- personalities, instruments, interests- we all have at least one thing in common: none of us would be where we are now if it wasn't for the dedication of you two. It is a gift to be able to listen to music, but being able to play it is a privilege. It's easy to forget about the hundreds of lives you change every year, but we want you to remember. We want to tell you that we appreciate all that you've done for us more than anyone can express. Thank you so much for a great three years. They've been the best years of my life. We love you!
