David has had two lessons with my son, and they have gone very well. Liam has enjoyed both lessons and is looking forward to the next one. David is great at balancing letting there be fun and conversation, while steering it back to the point and keeping Liam focused on what they were working on. He's helped Liam remember what he'd previously learned and helped polish those skills already. I saw Liam use the things David showed him while practicing during the week, and he enjoyed practicing after the confidence boost he got just from one lesson. Liam is happy to continue working with David and that says everything really.

Davids lesson has me feeling inspired to learn more. He was super friendly, gave great examples and helped get me in the right direction. He's made the trumpet seem less intimidating and I can't wait to take more lessons

David made me feel comfortable playing and was very calm and encouraging. I learned a lot in just one lesson. He also sent me things to practice during my personal playing time, which i appreciate. I will take lessons from him again.
