​"The fundamental concepts of tone, pitch and timing were the backbones of my brass choir experience with Dr. Gary Barrow. Dr. Barrow's ability to wrap those fundamentals in humor from the podium was/is unique in my experience and I try to share that experience with my students on a daily basis." ​Gordon Manley, Band Director, Northside High School
