Adrian Bannister

I've had an enormous amount of fun gelling with other musicians and performing in front of an audience! These programs have increased my talent and confidence an incredible amount. Thanks again Dave for putting in the time and energy to make these special engagements happen - I know you went well beyond what most would consider the requirment of a teacher. Your passion for music and the sweat you put into it has paid off for all of us students. You've been one of the best teachers anyone could hope for. - Adrain Bannister Sept 7th, 2010

Dave's band program is a wonderful concept for a growing musician. Getting the opportunity to put my skills to the test really made me confident in my abilities. By the end of the program I was doing things that I never would have thought possible. From beginning to end, the entire 8 weeks was thoroughly enjoyable! - April, 2010

The band was a great experience the first time and even better the second time! It is great for learning to perform and playing your instrument even better. I am doing it again and I recommend it to everyone to try. April 14, 2010

Dave is an exceptional teacher with great passion. The band program is a fantastic way to incorporate what students learned in the private lessons. My son enjoyed it very much. His first live performance on stage with the band certainly gave him a taste of real live music. Thanks for facilitating the great program. He is looking forward to the next one! Julia L

I can honestly say that I've enjoyed all my lessons with Dave. Apart from the expert guitar tuition, he's patient and supportive. His band programs are evidence of how hard he works for his students and his commitment to making learning the guitar a fun experience with the right degree of challenge. September 14, 2010

Kevin Hernandez - Guitar/Vocals

The band program has been a marvelous experience! The program has helped me reinforce what I've learned from Dave's classes while having the fun of playing along with people who share similar interests as me. And although I tend to be a shy person, rehearsing along with the people I can relate with has helped me to gain the courage to perform in front of a live audience! The entire experience helps motivate you to want to improve more! April 7th, 2010

I really enjoyed a quite few things about the last program. Firstly and most importantly, I noticed a significant increase in my playing ability. Secondly, I learned how to perform in a group instead of just on my own. Playing with a band was amazing. Thirdly, knowing that there was a performance at the end of the session created a more productive environment. Meaning that I had to learn the 8 songs well enough to perform them with confidence, in front of family, friends and strangers. The weekly rehearsals were instructive and fun and allowed me to feel like I was part of a group.

Playing my first gig in Dave’s band program was an eye opening experience, I had no appreciation for the amount of musical skill and organization it takes to pull together a group of guys from all skill levels and walks of life and produce a polished set of songs at the end. Not only did he pull it off, he made the process fun and I am sincerely grateful for my chance to perform in front of a crowd.

I enjoyed every moment of Dave’s Band Program and can wholeheartedly recommend it. Playing in a band is different from playing on your own – but patiently coaches you to do the best you can whatever your limitations as a player.

RICHARD LEE - GUITAR/VOCALS

Playing solo and taking lessons is one thing, but being able to play with other musicians is something completely different, with the band organization/program I learned to not only play my own instrument better, but how to play with others as well.

DANIEL ARRON - BASS

Dave is a great coach who helps to pull the best out of a rag-tag bunch of musicians. When we played our gig we really felt like we were the real deal.

DANIEL O'CONNER - KEYS/VOCALS

The knowledge that we gained during the rehearsals was invaluable and playing live was a fantastic experience. My friends couldn't believe how good we sounded!

ROB HERMAN - BASS/VOCALS

After playing for many years on my own or in the company of close friends, the band program demanded far more of my capabilities. Dave's band program teaches a number of skills that are not in our normal repertoire. Commitment, rehearsals, staging, and performing in a group with articulated roles become much more important than ever before. When it works it is a thrilling experience that captures 3 months of work into an exciting 40 minute performance.... and yes it did sound better than I ever expected.

JOHN HICKS - GUITARS

Guitar and Bass Lessons to put you on the stage

When i went into the band program i had the basic skills in playing guitar. The band program was a super-charger when i came to teaching me about my guitar and how an actual band works. By the end of it i was able to solo and know how to make it sound good. Also, my fear of soloing in front of a crowd went away, now I'm actually excited to do the solo. I really appreciate that Dave is doing this band program and I am looking forward to doing it again.

I have been taking lessons from Dave for a couple of years now, and have learned a lot. He then offered the idea of playing in a band, and I thought what a great idea. At first thought it would be hard and time consuming, but actually it was very easy! In the end, it was amazing to see what such little time could achieve though the band program. Looking forward to doing it again!

As a student and member of several of Dave Glabais' ensemble groups, I have witnessed and personally experienced the fun and musical growth he brings to his class. Dave has much to offer as a teacher because of his extensive theoretical background and practical performance experience, but he never forgets to keep things fun, and his enthusiasm is infectious. In my case, Dave helped me evolve from a long-time bedroom picker into a performing musician and band-member. His high standards and coaching helped bring a polish to my playing and take my performance to a new level. After twenty years of music, I have no reservation about recommending Dave as a music teacher to anyone of any level who wants to begin or improve.

I loved to be out there. It was like a dream come true. Thanks to Dave, he is a great teacher and I learned a lot.

MIA FILIPPINI - GUITAR/VOCALS

I'd like to thank all the students for their participation in my unique Band Program! It's really a great pleasure and a joy to see all the improvement in musicianship, confidence and the abilty that each student has gained from this program. I look forward to the repeat performances from many of you as well as first-timers in 2009! Live Large, Play Live!

DAVE & LAYLA

The Band Program was a lot of fun! It's one thing to play an instrument on your own, but playing with a band is a whole different experience. With the drums kicking and the bass going, it was hard not to get into it. Dave was great at teaching us how to bring out our own talent to help the band sound great as a whole. And it all culminated in really living the rock and roll dream; Dave set up a great venue for our show so we could all feel like rock stars for a night.
