Barry Simon, Drums

I just discovered your site from the Nexus newsletter. I was a drum student of yours at HJHS from 1967-1969.

It is so great to read about your career and how many lives you have touched. You were one of my greatest and most memorable teachers, mentors and role models. I was in the band, stage band, marching band and orchestra in Junior High—truly the greatest of times. I received a degree in Art Education but eventually became an Art Director for magazines. I have worked for National Lampoon, Ziff Davis (Computer Shopper), and recently Trump Magazine. I have my own design business but music continues to tug at me. I am currently playing guitar and drums in three different bands. Music adds so much to my life, and I have you to thank.
