Davidson is the bomb.com he does not pick favorites its just ability that matters. He jokes around and makes the class fun, but he also wants students to respect him. It is difficult to do both, but i think Mr.D is balancing them well. Great teacher

Always in a good mood, class has a free, open, tolerant feeling and is truly a haven every day for the stressed and overworked Whitman overachievers. Doesn't pick favs! But recognizes prior musical exp and never shies away from recognizing good kids.

He is loads of fun and can make any choir sound beautiful. As long as you put an effort into Chorus and don't see it as a "joke class," you will do well.

Mr. D is by far the BEST teacher i have ever had. At the moment we have a student teacher with us.of course, this man is learning but when he conducts it is BAD! As soon as Mr. D takes over its magic!

Papa D is one of the greatest people ever. Picks favorites, but only in the sense that he likes you more if you work hard and have some measure of talent. And he certainly knows everyones name. It doesn't matter if you arent one of the "favorites" - if you work hard, you'll make Chambers. If you dont, don't blame D for that.

I've had the opportunity to learn from many music teachers throughout high school and college, and I still consider Mr. Davidson to be the finest music teacher I've ever learned from. He is extremely knowledgeable concerning many aspects of music, a clear and concise instructor, and overall, a nice and caring man. Keep up the excellent work Mr. Davidson!
