Praise for Gordon Neal Herman: “Gordon is a talented musician and very professional speaker.  He’s very easy to work with. His programs on musical eras, composers, and musicians are exactly the right fit for the elder generation, and are really interesting to me, to learn the history behind the music that I already enjoy.  Gordon relates very well to residents and really brings an “educational” talk to life with sound clips, video and humor.  Residents really appreciate the depth and quality of a program he provides–they are something that marketing can promote and showcase for a community. Gordon is a great addition to the activities calendar.” Danette U., Activity Coordinator,The Quarry Senior Living
