Vicki Schaffer, director of the Colt Cadets, submitted this photo and caption.

Tom Lizotte (a.k.a. Yoda) has taught drum corps for more than 30 years. After watching Tom teach, one understands how he earned his nickname. He has been an incredible influence on the Colt Cadets. The jury is out on who learns more…the members or the staff!

This photo was taken following a Colt Cadets performance in 2009. What makes the photo extra special is, if you look closely, the title of the book Tom is holding: "Teaching Music With Passion." From our perspective, Mr. Lizotte could have written the book based on his approach to drum corps!
