For his outstanding contributions as a band teacher, Julian is recognized on the Donors’ Wall of Fame by Roger Hartsook of Emporia, Kansas. According to Roger;
“Mr. Aubuchon taught me to love music, all music. He made music come alive for all of us in the Eureka bands. Our daily class was a continuous adventure and exploration. We played old music and new. He would related pieces of music to the composer or a famous performer and use our imagination to make the music live. I remember listening to Caruso and others. He taught us not to shrink from difficult music but to attack it. I have visited with other people he taught at Cimarron and St. Francis and they hold him in the same high esteem. He was my mentor. I had and still have the greatest respect for Mr. Aubuchon. He became a legend in Eureka and his music also became part of that legend. They don’t come any better than Julian Aubuchon.”
Julian taught music (band) at the junior and senior high level at Eureka High School in Eureka, Kansas. Julian taught thirty-nine years before retiring.
