#2085214 - 05/19/13 01:31 PM Public Apology to Mark Davis

Some time ago, I chimed in on a thread started by Mr. Davis. I was explaining my preference for an octave size. He asked me a few questions and asked for some clarification on some points. He "took me to task" on some of my contradictions.

Instead of accepting his questions as a starting point for me to improve my explanation, I choose to react in an unprofessional manner and criticize his motives. He correctly reposted my PM to him, which appropriately humiliated me in public.

I have a passion for teaching, and teaching piano tuning specifically. I cannot be proud of my work knowing that I had failed so miserably with someone who truly wanted to understand my point of view more clearly.

For this I am sorry and I ask Mr. Davis to forgive my immature and unprofessional conduct. I also welcome him and others to "take me to task" on any other posts I make that are not clear. My priority is clarity, and education, in that order.

This issue has bothered me profoundly since it occured and I want to thank Mark for the way he responded to me.

I appreciate the forum and respect the rules and ethics that have been established. If someone can explain and be clear in this forum, they can do it anywhere; it is a great venue to hone this skill.
