I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Stoecker's ability to portray the concepts of music theory to his students. I am sure that he will be deeply missed at Oberlin and the staff and students of Hofstra should know that they have one of the best music theory teachers in the country working on their staff now. Anyone who has ever been taught or worked with him knows how lucky they were. I know how lucky I am.
