December 20, 2016 at 05:33 PM · Eugene Shepherd was my teacher in the late fifties until the mid sixties. He was one of the most influential people in my life and taught me to see the beauty of classical music. He taught so many of us in Santa Rosa through private lessons, junior high teacher and the Junior Symphony. He will be remembered and loved for his caring and respectful way to teaching. See you in a few more years, Gene.
