Mr. Krenzischek is a very devoted and patient music instructor. Three of my children and I have been students for up to 9 1/2 years and still going. The school emphasizes developing a keen understanding of the basics of music no matter which instrument is being learned. Columbia School of Music has the most diverse student body of any school I have ever been acquainted with in Howard County. That is saying a lot as all three of my children attend Ellicott City and Columbia Schools!

Mr. Krenzischek and his staff always go the extra mile to help ensure that their students learn and understand their instrument and work hard to excel at it. I can not recommend the school enough. If you or your children truly wish to enjoy music and become proficient at an instrument then Columbia School of Music is the place for you.

Wow!!! Thanks Mr. Kurt. Now all can seewhat a great job the school is doing for our kids. Thanks for the six years we have been together.

You were by far my best teacher and I only wish that you could have moved to Cayman. Think about it.  Lying on the beach every day and teaching me for an hour each week.

I am positive that your School is doing well; your students are blessed to have you.

Our family has been blessed by your instruction and the Columbia School of Music. Although I realize that Caleb has wonderful talent, I know that it was through your guidance and love of what you do that has helped him to further excel. We will surely miss you and our weekly meetings. We will definitely keep in touch and let us know when you are in Hawaii! Thanks again for everything!

SUBJECT: USO Care Package Fund Raiser

On behalf of the members of the Yingling-Ridgely VFW Post No. 7472, its Ladies Auxiliary and Jr. Girls Unit, we would like to thank you for your generous time and outstanding, job you and your group did to entertain for our Lasagna Dinner/Entertainment fundraiser that benefited the USO Operation Care Package.

The entertainment was enjoyed and was very well received. They should all be proud of their accomplishments.

Because of you and many others in the community of Ellicott City, Maryland, we were able to raise over $1,340.00 for the USO Operation Care Packages, and collect over $5,000 in items for the BWI USO Care Packages. These USO Operation Care Packages are going to the men and women in the armed forces fighting "Operation Iraqi Freedom".

Through the media, we have already heard that our armed forces have received USO Care Packages and how important it has been for morale. It shows our support and love.

Thank you again for your generous donation in supporting our fundraiser that enabled us to raise the funds necessary to support our troops.

God Bless America!

Sandi Kriebel, PDP

Dear Sallye,

Thank you so much for your beautiful offertory tonight. You did such a nice job. I especially liked the section with the chimes. I hope you will agree to play for us again. The first time is always the hardest and you did such a wonderful job. Thank you for playing.
