I came across David Levenson's obituary in the Boston Globe today. He was my theory and counterpoint teacher at Newton South High School. Two of the people quoted in the obituary, William Wright (who I knew as Billy), and Frank Powdermaker, were both in my theory and counterpoint classes. I believe that there were six of us in the counterpoint class back in the 1975-1976 school year, and, mostly due to the no-nonsense teaching of David Levenson, four of us went on to become professional musicians.
