Eastman mourns the loss of Dr. Reid Alexander (November, 2015).  He was author and co-author of numerous publications, including Keyboard Musicianship, Books 1 and 2, and Piano Repertoire Guide: Intermediate and Advanced Literature. Both texts are used here at Eastman and in many music schools throughout the country. His research in the area of scholarship offerings in community music schools was a significant contribution to the field of community arts education.  He was a dear friend, a wonderful colleague, and a devoted teacher.  The music world will miss him, but his innumerable contributions and words of advice will be cherished for many years.
