Teaching since:
September 1974

I am a retired band director with thirty-two years of experience. Many of my former students have gone on to great careers, including a band director in Texas, district manager of a Guitar and Drum Center store and even a trumpet player with the Army in Korea! Prior to that, I spent three years as a bugler in the U.S. Army with the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps near Washington, D.C. Besides all the woodwind, brass and percussion instruments, I play and teach piano and accompany my students at recitals. I have five children of my own in music who perform and teach extensively.

Mr. Arnold has a very thorough knowledge of music and what it takes to physically create music. If you don't understand something one way, he will explain it in other way's that you do understand. He seems to have no limit to his patience and caring about his student's. A great sense of humor, a guy you would like as a neighbor.

We found Mr. Arnold to be one of the best tutors around. He was easy to work with our changing schedule. He covered all the areas we needed, and was able to provide instruction through all levels of talent. We felt blessed for all the help he gave us, but also for the positive roll model he was.
