Stage Left Open Mic – Dave Dalton featured performer in April

Woodstock School Of Music founder Dave Dalton is a long time veteran of teaching and performing music in the McHenry County area. Early in his career, Dave studied jazz and music theory and in 1985 he opened up a recording studio, “Sound Science Studio”.

Through the years he has recorded countless bands and songwriters and produces custom music for jingles and corporate videos. All of this experience gives him a depth of music knowledge that he brings to each lesson with his students. Dave teaches guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin and songwriting.

Check out Dave’s website for the Woodstock School of Music — lots of good stuff to see. Visit Dave’s Facebook and Linked In pages as well.

Here’s a sample of Dave playing a song he wrote. We know you’ll want to hear more!
