Dr. John Swain died on Sunday after a long battle with cancer. Anyone who knew him knows what a loss this is. John was Associate Dean of Fine Arts at Cal State Los Angeles where he had taught low brass and Music Education for many years. He was also Associate Conductor of the Golden State British Brass Band. He was a strong advocate for Music Education and served on the state board of CMEA and on the board of the Southern California Judging Association. He also wrote some fine pieces for young bands.

He was among the most genuine and friendly people I ever met. These personal qualities along with his great skill as a musician made him a model for and friend to many young teachers. John was loved by all who know him and will be missed by all.

Anybody care to share some memories?
