He is a dedicated and talented educator who definitely goes the “extra mile” for his students. he conducts concert and jazz bands, as well as the pit for the West’s annual musical. David is a dedicated member of NSBA. He has committed hi time to projects such as conducting the Nova Scotia Junior Wind Ensemble, as well as serving on the organizing committee for that group. David is an active musician. He is still very active as a member of the local 36 brigade militia band, and served our community in that role for many years. David is an outstanding member of our community with years of experience and a strong commitment to music education. I highly recommend him for this award and I feel it is highly deserved.
