I've known David Stanoch for some thirty years. He is a consummate professional, a master percussionist who is absolutely at home in every conceivable style of music. We've shared the stage in numerous club and concert venues over the past twelve years, playing latin, bebop, funk, free, and all other jazz-related styles. David also has vast experience in classical, folk, rock, and world music situations. In addition to being a master musician, David is a superb clinician who interacts well with students at any level.

David did a clinic with my top high school jazz band which was one of the finest my kids have ever experienced. Besides giving the rhythm section lots of specific things to work on, David did great work with the horn sections. The really special thing about David's clinic though, was the way in which he imparted his philosophy of professionalism and what it truly means to be a musician. Through David's sense of humor and warm personality the kids gained a deeper understanding of the way that fun and responsibility of making great music go together.

David Stanoch is definitely both a master musician and a first class human being."
