Comments on Eduardo's teaching: 

 

"Dear Eduardo,
   Wow, what a workshop!  You are amazing!  The students (most of them teachers) just loved your performance, participatory segments, and words to them.  One marching band director said to me that he was convinced that his band could be energized on the field if he could learn and then teach to them ways of sparking of their pieces, Brazilian-style.
