Dr. Mohler was my saving grace at Michigan. Coming to Ann Arbor from a small St. Louis suburb, I was overwhelmed by the size of the University and the competition within the Music Department (1969-1973). Mohler was always a good source of calm and advice, which he always kindly offered. He was always patient and showed a genuine interest in his students, and yes, he played the keys off of the horn with a genuine sense of depth and color! I loved listening to him demonstrate sections of any works in my lessons. His sense of humor was dry and absolutely hilarious. I did try to make my own reeds, but not too successfully I might add. He was a very patient and kind coach though, and one time he offered to correct my homemade reed that was on my mouthpiece at the time. I gladly gave him the reed, and with his polite encouragement, I removed a brand new one from one of his own reed boxes, and we thus continued the lesson. We both smiled and I never made a reed again to this day, happily so :-). There are just too many wonderful stories to tell here. Mohler was a good man, consummate gentleman, and absolutely incredible teacher. I kept in touch with him on the phone for many years. Dr. Mohler (I just could not bring myself to call him Don) was the reason I got through Michigan. I owe him my entire career, and my continued interest in Music Theory and Composition. I will miss him dearly.

John was my clarinet teacher from my sophomore year in 1962 thru my masters work at Michigan. He was not only a major influence in my clarinet playing and teaching career, but he was also a friend that took me out for frozen yogurt after concerts at the Denver clarinet conferences. There was never a question about his patience and concern for his students, and this became a model for many of us in our own teaching. He was demanding but never threatening. I will fondly remember the honor it was to play in the clarinet choir of his former students when John was made an honorary member of ICA in 2003. He will be missed, but his memory will be forever in the minds of those he taught.

John was not only an extraordinary clarinetist and pedagogue; he was a lovely, gentle, and caring individual. I first met John when I was a student at the University of Michigan in the late 60s. While he was not my teacher, he was always available to me with advice, suggestions and encouragement. Later, when we were both involved with the International Clarinet Association, he was the calm voice of reason and was instrumental in engineering the rapprochement of the ICA and ClariNetwork. He will be remembered by his many accomplishments, the gratitude of his many students, but most of all, by his generosity and dedication.
