Such memories I have of Mr. Krick and chorus and band. Our High School musicals at BR. He taught me how to breathe and although I did not go further with music it has always been a part of my life and I still breathe the way he taught me. My deepest sympathy to your entire family and know that he is now teaching the angels. Can you hear the?

I offer my condolences to all who loved Mr. Krick. He will always be Mr. Krick to me; he commanded respect and pushed us to pursue excellence. I had him for 4 years of concert and marching band. I was (and still am) uncoordinated and I feared being made to run laps (when I made mistakes), but at some point, I realized that he rewarded the effort at least as much as success. I learned a lot about music, friendship, discipline, and excellence from him. And, although playing flute is not part of my regular life anymore, music is. I have been singing in a women's chorus for over 10 years and have served as its president twice. His instruction helped lay the foundation for one of the great...est joys in my life and helped me find my voice. I hope your memories will be a comfort. I know that I am better for having had him as a teacher.Read more
