There are not many teachers and educators working
today who have the insight and understanding as Ken Foberg. There is a mixture of the traditional methods of sound
teaching and discipline that all students need and a rare ability to excite and motivate young and old to improve and grow. His
excitement, which never seems to lag, inspires all educators and students he comes in contact with. I have seen
him work and have sat and talked with him for almost twenty years. Not only is he knowledgeable in the field of
music, the theory and performance of music, but he is able to inject into his teaching humor and experiences that seem to
teach entire groups. He can touch the advanced student as well as the slow learner and also those who are not sure…Issac Jenkins, Vocal and Instrumental
Director, DosPueblos High School, Santa Barbara, CA.
I have known Ken for twenty years and he has proven many times in and out of my presence to be a first-rate quality educator, clinician and musician. Ken
has a fabulous ability to get the most out of people and students in a short amount of time and every one has fun doing it. Ken
has experience with all age groups of people and has shown much success in all idioms of the music business. Ken has worked with me and
for my program over six years as a full-time music teacher. Mr. Foberg’s best attribute is the ability to
teach and guide his students and their instructors through the information that is not presented in higher education but out in the filed of the music arena. He
provides a unique service to all with his knowledge and experience in getting everyone to work with concepts that are not
explored or even presented by educational programs and curriculums. These worthwhile tools help everyone to understand
and succeed in the music business and a much higher level than the even gifted of individuals. Ken remains one of our countries best educators,
clinicians and musicians and will always be in demand by my program and our mutual colleagues in the field of music education
and music business…Jeffrey

Ken Foberg is a dynamic music teacher and clinician
who is able to successfully communicate a vast amount of knowledge to his students regardless of the students’ level
and ability. He demonstrated this not only in the formal classroom setting, but as well as in clinics. His
approach to teaching is excellent…Frank

creates a strong charismatic presence in front of an ensemble, and his precise, succinct commentary peppered with his blistering
wit combine to impart profound insights not only into successful music making but into successful living as well. It
is without hesitation and complete confidence that I recommend Ken Foberg as a consummate music educator…Carl Hammond, Concert Band Director,
