Am saddened to hear of Dr. Tietze's demise. I was his administrative assistant under a grant program while studying at WNMU in Silver City.

I must add my condolences to the Tietze Family. Doc was a most generous and enthusiastic teacher. My sympathy goes out to Perkie. Those years at UWP were memorable ones and I'm happy to say that when we performed with the Naples Phil years later, I shared some good times with Doc and Perkie. God bless you all.

Anyone who meet him loved him, and saw a happier way of life. I was honored to be his announcer while at WNMU. My belated condolences to the family.

The genius of Dr. Tietze was apparent to a musical student; I was not a music major by choice (English) but adored and admired his sheer talent, artistry, perfection, patience and taking us from UWPlatteville to the Seattle World's Fair...many a romance was borne from that trip (not mine!) and we even stayed on gigantic ship the first night....many from Platteville were in Seattle to hear our music--Connie Harrell and Jerry Lewis were our soloists and commentator respectively..I donated my World's Fair Record album (yes we had them) to the Wisconsin Center in his honor, now memory. I reside in Peoria but came "home" to Platteville and was saddened to read of his passing in the local paper. He was ahead of his time...I could not sight read tho had perfect pitch/played by ear so was not 1st chair! He was one of a kind and an exceptional human being. His lovely wife was involved in Methodist Church Sunday School as was my late mom, Zelma Schuldt....

Doc was my mentor and first clarinet teacher. He taught me with a dedication and love of music that I've carried with me ever since. I went on to teach clarinet myself, and have followed Bill's methods as closely as possible. His spirit will always be with us. I'm sure there's a swing band in heaven that he's grooving in right now.
