David Smith is a fantastic teacher, musician and communicator. He understands how to diagnose what issues a student is facing on the horn. He played a very big role in the preparation I did for my senior recital when I was an undergraduate trumpet student, and he was very encouraging throughout the whole process. If you take lessons with him, you are going to get a step by step plan that will help you reach your goals.
