Upon entering the 6th grade, David had to take a test to get into the band (Atlanta area) and he did not do so well. David went home crying and explained to his father he wanted to be in the band and play the tuba. David's father persuaded the school to give him a chance, and they did! David's father then explained to David that he could not afford to buy him a tuba and he should consider the saxophone. At first glance David thought it would be too difficult with all the keys on the saxophone vs only three on the tuba. Long story short David went from beginning band to advanced band in one year. When David entered the 7th grade in Augusta,Ga he had his first urge to perform. He took his saxophone out to recess and just started blowing the ''Swing Sheppard Blues". David has been performing every chance he's gotten since that day!
