Actually Michaele, you should also thank ODW.

He keeps a low profile, but he is one of the most insightful and prolific collectors and promoters of our culture on the web.

I do not know where he gets some of the stuff he posts on youtube, but we culture lovers all owe him an immense debt for his outstanding work promoting our culture, and education us.

Thank you, "IsDePanInMe", much appreciation and respect!

Thank you very much Dr. Ellie Mannette for your numerous contributions to the development of Pan and your efforts in making this Instrument Universally accepted . This interview indicates clearly what's your mission re Pan and I hope this would bring an end to the negativity which were expressed previously by one contributor . Most of us grew up playing your Styling of Pans and we cannot add anything to your Greatness in this field for your work speaks for itself . Thanks .

May you live long and prosper Dr. Ellie Mannette.

 Thanks for the dedication and genius that you share as well as the foresight that many lack - the ability to see that what we do is not just for us but for those who follow.
