"Torin is a great educator who cares about his students and their success. Student performances are phenomenal under his leadership. I enjoy walking past his classroom and watching students through the classroom window as they sing."
-Christy Patterson, AIG Teacher at Moore County Schools
"Tory is able to pull together singers of all ages, along with instrumental musicians in one setting, and do it all with grace and love."
"Torin is a most talented singer-actor and director. I was his voice teacher and also director and conductor of many shows in which Torin had leading roles. His Toby in Sondheim's "Sweeney Todd" was outstanding and much remembered by all of us. Torin has a wonderfully warm baritone voice and knows how to make a song com alive."
-Dr. Lloyd Hanson, Voice Teacher, Director, Conductor
"Tory is one of the most talented and creative musicians with whom I've had the pleasure of working. His musical knowledge, teaching style, and passion for music inspire confidence and produce exceptional results."
-Dan Rush, Sales Leader at State Farm
"Mr. Wright played a major role in my own personal drive for musical excellence. He knew what it took to grab the very best in a vocal ensemble and put it on display. That ability is what produced superior rated choirs and small ensembles. I use that example today as I train ensembles within the gospel genre. Good training can take you further than talent alone. Thanks Mr. Wright!"
"Ten years after I left the Pinecrest campus, I found myself in my own classroom using Mr. Wright's teaching techniques and standards with my own students. He taught me the value of being open, honest, and professional in a classroom. He also taught me the value of being able to laugh at yourself even as a teacher."
"Mr. Wright understood his job was more than just an educator; he was training young artists during a pivotal point in their lives and looking back he was a defining factor in shaping me into the man I am today."
"Mr. Wright has a passion, intense dedication, and enthusiasm for teaching music, and he relates so well to kids of all ages. He has a way of instilling confidence in even the shyest of children, helping them to reach their fullest potential through his patience and creativity. Beyond all that however, Mr. Wright is a genuine, caring, funny, and sincere person. He is a man of strong character who I believe has been a blessing to our church as well as to our community as a whole. He is one of those teachers who you look back on and know what a positive impact he had on your life."
