Mr. Hamant has been a life long colleague, fellow student, educator and friend. He has always made himself available to me as adjudicator, mentor, and source of information during my career. Dana is an outstanding teacher in all fields of instrumental music as recognized by the Kansas Bandmasters Association, Kansas Music Educators Association, MENC, IAJE, Phi Beta Mu, Lion's Band International as well as Bandworld magazine. Mr. Hamant ia a fine clinician, musician, mentor, and friend, and has made an indellable mark on my teaching career. Mr. Hamant has conducted orchestras on several occasions at Midwest. I only hope to be present someday when Dana is inducted into the Kansas Music Educators Association Hall of Fame.
