Elizabeth Southard Mau Testimonial

“Even when a student has come to him after developing bad habits, Mr. Godwin has the amazing ability to see through to the core of a student’s potential and expose the hidden beauty in their instrument.

I was fortunate to work with him, throughout my undergraduate years, and because of his dedication and my hard work, I was able to actualize a solid foundation for my performing career.

I truly believe that without his efforts, I may not have achieved my potential. For that, I will always be grateful.”
