In chorus how he'd imitate us not singing from our diaphragms, pursing his lips out with his fingers to show sound originating at our teeth, "ich hatte viel bekummernis" he'd squeak.
In Appreciation, "now that's a melody you can hang your hat on".
In Theory, calling me back into the room to pick up the spiral notepaper scraps I'd left on the floor around my chair. "Bob!, What's this?"
How wonderfully he played the piano explaining counterpoint or the Chorales we used in Theory.... or performing with the chorus.
How he made us laugh.
We all loved him.

Natalie and Jennifer,

I cannot begin to count the ways that knowing Bob changed my life. In addition to the ground rule: "Are you serious about music? Where's your pencil?", he both continuously challenged me and steadily built my self confidence, both as a musician and as a human being......
Although I now earn a living as a psychologist, I remain serious about music. Among the gifts as applicable to the practice of psychology as to the practice of music, Bob taught me to listen, how to listen and how to pay attention in the present moment. I could not do what I do today without those gifts.
Bob once showed me a page of notation and said "Someday you'll look at something like this and hear the music". He was right!
Bob will continue to live through all of the ways he touched people. I could not begin to repay his gifts, but will continue to do so in a way I know he would wish... by paying them forward.

Dr. Aborn was an Incredible Man. I was very lucky to have him as a teacher and a mentor. He believed in me and helped me believe in myself. He convinced me to join the chorus,and because of him I am now teaching chorus. I will always remember the Passion, Vigor and Contagious Love and Enthusiasm he had for music. God Bless Him and His wonderful Family. My heart, thoughts and prayers are going out to you.

Dr. Aborn was so dear to my heart. He is the most inspirational man I've ever met and I am so very blessed to have been one of his students. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
