Some feedback from ensemble participants:

Working with Dave as a soloist, performing my first concerto, was a pleasure. He was extremely friendly, cooperative and understanding and made what could have been a pressurised experience very enjoyable for me.

I have had the privilege of working with David twice, and both times have been absolutely wonderful! He is extremely encouraging, personable, and professional; anyone who works with David is sure to enjoy his amazing energy!

David conducted with precision and confidence, while giving just the right amount of freedom for every solo passage. This rare combination, together with his approachable personality, makes DGS a wonderful person to work with.

The past two years in this ensemble are the most I have ever enjoyed playing in a wind band, so much so that I have applied to join the corps of army music and today have passed my selection to secure my place!

I really enjoyed the time I spent playing saxophone in the ensemble- I learnt so much from your expertise in rehearsals and really appreciated the opportunities you created for the group. I think the range of music that we were able to play was really beneficial in pushing all of us to reach our potential.
