Many years ago, or so it seems, when you were teaching recording arts at the Center for the Media Arts in NY, I was one of your students. Because you had many students, you may not remember me. I was (am) a tall redneck from Mississippi named Phillip Tubb. I stayed in NY for a while and then moved back down here. I stayed in music for years but started getting hungry and went to Pharmacy school. I have a small studio in my home and have continued recording my own music, but it has now become more of an expensive hobby. I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how much I appreciate the job you did in teaching me back then. There is not a day that slides by that I don't use some of the information that you instilled in me in those days. My whole attitude about recording and music in general has been shaped by the way that you taught that class. It probably didn't mean that much to you, but it has really made an impact on me, not only in recording studios where I have worked and recorded, but in my work now. I know you may find it strange to recieve a note from me so far down the road, but I just felt I needed to let you know what a great job you did back then. I hope things are going well for you and fortune always smiles your way.

A long lost student and fan,

Phillip Tubb
