I was so saddened to find out about Kent's passing. He'll always be a teenager in my mind. Kent was one of my favorite music students. He was so eager to learn, and really enjoyed mastering new songs, and the skills required. He made teaching rewarding and fun! Sending my love and prayers to his family.
