A. K. Quilter
"…He was concerned with teaching some of our ablest specialist violin pupils. He quickly established for himself a reputation, not only as a teacher of high standard, but as a person who showed considerable interest in his pupils. He was popular for the right reasons because those taught by him trusted his judgements; they respected his high standard of professional commitment, he was always ready to give advice and encouragement where it was needed and merited. He assisted in the development of chamber music in the school –– I should perhaps explain that we are one of four specialist schools recognised in this country for the training of young musicians at the highest level. ... He always maintained high personal standards in his relationship with his pupils."
