 Testimonials

Many of the testimonials that I have posted below came from comments made on my YouTube videos. Since I have declared all my videos to be "child safe" the "comments" feature has been disabled. I assume that this decision was because offensive language could possibly be read by a child before I would be able to delete it. So now I am missing the interaction that I used to enjoy with my viewers. 

Here are a few that I saved before the comment feature was discontinued.

"This guy's got talent! I didn't know this song [Nobody Likes Me...], and I laughed SO MUCH. It's the best version on YouTube. Well done and thank you for sharing."

"Hey Mr. Van Deursen, Thank you so much for inspiring me musically. I would have never picked up an instrument to become what I am today were it not for you. I still remember: "eating [pretend] worms" in your elementary school music class. And how patient and loving you were through our lessons!  Now, I am about to graduate with a degree in music. "I can still feel the love of God through you! Thank you so much."

-Nick P. (former student), West Palm Beach, FL

"Thank you so much for playing during the past two lunches [Christmas family dinners at school]. It is so nice to have the music in the background. The song selection was very nice. My kids and I very much enjoyed it. Merry Christmas!"

"Hey Mr Charles, I have to say I was only in your class for 3 school years but you had such a great impact on me. You are the main reason I want to learn to play the keyboard and guitar and because of you I have a bunch of new techniques and tips to follow. Hope all your students to come have just as much fun in your class as I did. I am now a 7th grade student. Also band was really fun when I was in 4th grade."

"I like to be a bit more informational about music because it is fun and amazing because I get to see you. And I love music because I could learn about how to play instruments that I don't know how to play. I just wanted to say that you are the best music [teacher] I ever had in my life, even at my old school. And I like to play [the] instruments that you have because it is very excited to learn more things and me smile when I up. And I just want to thank you for taking me everything I know right now. And thank you for letting me be smart and keeping me about music. And I am in Mr. James' homeroom class. And just wanted to say thank you for teaching me all that I know.  And I bet she was a smart person on earth. Thank you. Have a great day for teaching this school all what you know. Love, Madison"
