"Aaron Hines was a huge inspiration for my musical career. His energetic attitude and passion towards music helped me strive to reach my musical goals and beyond. He taught me to be versatile, creative, and to always enjoy the journey. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in learning more about music or expanding their musical vocabulary." -Tim Stephenson, Jazz Percussionist and Music Teacher

"I will say that as my Snare Tech back when I was in high school, Aaron taught me a lot about being able to understand how to break down music and control my playing. He has also filled my head with a lot of knowledge of being a great leader and center snare to the snareline and his expectations were always high. To this day I use all the knowledge he gave me to be able instruct the snareline at Rodriguez High school and with this knowledge I was able to build a championship snareline in a matter of 3 out of the 4 years I've been with Rodriguez. I would recommend Aaron as an instructor or writer and appreciate everything he has taught me." -JR Fry, Percussion Technician and Teacher
