Dave Kaufman is the reason I am studying music. He is an inspiration to his students and an incredibly knowledgable musician. Although he can be a pain, you don't realize what you have until its gone; he is only a pain to get the best out of the you. Mr. Kaufman is easily the most influential person in my life other than my parents. He will help you with anything, whether it be music, or just life. Special teacher.

I've had him for Freshman Band and AP Theory, as well as Jazz Q and Pit Orchestra. One of the most influential teachers you will have. He will challenge you and push you past your limits. He will mold you into a real person that compromises and thinks for themselves.

Mr. Kaufman is a very annoying person. He talks about worthless info for the 1st half of class and he lets you out of class late (You will be late to your next class!!)
