I am shocked and devistated to hear of the passing of Eddie Green, teacher of teachers and mentor to me and so many others. I was amazed when I heard his Lake Highlands High School band play at TMEA when I was a young teacher. I still remember the Flying Dutchman Overture and that sound! I had never heard a band with that kind of sound and realized I had to meet this person and find out how he could make a band sound like that. Over the years we became good friends and I learned so much about teaching and band sound. Eddie was a wealth of knowledge and it seemed to never end. The band world lost an icon. He changed the sound and teaching of bands in an amazing way. He influenced thousands of band directors and teaching styles and expectations. Rest In Peace Eddie. You will be missed by many but legacy will continue on. It was an honor to learn from you.
