Mr. Caldwell was a very big influence in my life during high school in Weslaco, TX, and I will always remember him with love and affection. He will be missed on this earth! May your family be comforted by memories of his love of music!
WITH DEEPEST LOVE AND SORROW FOR YOUR LOSS, DR. CALDWELL WILL BE IN MY THOUGHTS FOREVER. HE WAS A GREAT TEACHER.
Ken was a dear friend that had a tremendous impact and positive influence on students and teachers in Music Education of the Four States area. He will be greatly missed.
He taught music with such passion. I learned so much about music and the teaching of music while playing in his bands at NSU. I also understand he was a driving force in public school music in the 4 states area through his Loveall Music store. His influence in the world of music education was far-reaching to be sure, as there are many directors whose success is due in large part to his mentorship. The world of music education has suffered a tremendous loss.
Although I did not see Ken often, I always looked forward to times where we might be together. He is one of my favorite people, and the music world as a whole will miss him terribly. I wish I had been able to play in one of his bands. Just listening to him talk about bands and music, I get the feeling they were really good groups!! I am writing a book "Everything I Know, I Learned at Wednesday Directors' Seminar!!"
