“Jarrett Lipman is held in the highest regard as a music educator, mentor, and human being. There are few people out
there as genuine as he is. Jarrett has been an anchor for me as a music teacher. All that I’m doing for my current students, I learned from him. Jarrett looks further than just music when it comes to education. He teaches all of us to work hard, be team players, and to strive to the highest level that we can push ourselves to contribute to society!”

“Jarrett Lipman is a fantastic motivator and one of the finest educators I have ever met. His impact on our program has been monumental! He started working with us in the Fall of 2015 which resulted in us receiving straight 1st-division ratings at the UIL Marching Contest for the first time in 10 years. By the Fall of 2016, our band advanced to the UIL Area Finals for the first time in school history!”

“Over the last twelve years, I have come to know Jarrett Lipman as a band director, mentor, and friend. I have never met someone with such a strong charisma and passion for excellence as him — as seen in his success with building the CTJ high school band program in its first 15 years, his state and national recognitions in music education, and his continuous perseverance in finding ways to serve his community. I owe many of my experiences and professional achievements to his constant example of grit and determination, his leadership, and his guidance. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the impact Jarrett has had on my life and I look forward to witnessing how he will impact and serve our community in the coming years.“

“For almost ten years now Jarrett Lipman has been the biggest mentor for me as a growing educator. He has always been someone that is both honest and helpful with his feedback on my teaching in a positive way. While under Jarrett’s guidance, he has found solutions to help me be successful in my environment, as well as find my strengths to help make my teaching style shine. Every sectional, rehearsal, and clinic I’ve watched him teach at throughout these last ten years has been only the most top-tier professional development for me, and most importantly, has helped develop the musicianship of my students. For programs and educators of all levels, Jarrett Lipman is the perfect mentor and provides only the highest quality of service to all he does.”

Samantha DiMatteo

Assistant Director of Bands, Seguin High School, Seguin, TX


“Since the start of this school year, Jarrett has been coming out to help our program and his ability to come in and provide immediate feedback for our students and staff is incredible. He has become more than just a clinician for my program, but a true mentor to me as I work toward building my band program. Jarrett truly cares about the success of my students and program as we continue to grow. I very much look forward to continuing working with Jarrett in the future!”
