What a great day of Jazz at Appel Farm! Families really enjoyed your Jazz
For Kids show. This is a wonderful introduction to the music with a lot of
fun attached.

The Winter Holiday Jazz Concert is a perfect kick off to the season. Your
ensemble breathes new life into familiar tunes.

It was a delight to see such a turn out for your piano masterclass. The
attendees were very enthusiastic and you were very generous with your
time and willingness to work with them.
--Sean Timmons Artistic Director Appel Farm Arts & Music Center

Dear Shelley and Dave,
What a dynamic duo you are!! I can't thank you enough for the fabulous
interactive presentation yesterday. You really did "hit all the right notes". We all
had a great time!!! and learned a lot. I am asking the students to draw parallels
to improvisation in art and improvisation in life. Dave's analogy to conversation as
improvisation is something we have discussed. It was great to have it affirmed
by another artist.

Patty Carlis, Executive Director
Stage Door Workshop for Youth

Hi, Dave.

This is the first time I've been back in my office since the summer youth
jazz camp ended and I wanted to thank you for being a part of our program.

It was a pleasure having you here. I know the students greatly enjoyed your
talk and your performance. You have a talent for being able to present what
you do in a way that students understand and you make it interesting as
well. (This is not as common as you may think, it is a rare gift.)

Thanks again!

Neil Wetzel EdD
