“David’s teaching will be greatly missed in the Washington D.C. region.  His studio was widely regarded as the finest in the region and was always listed first on my private trumpet studio list. David develops an outstanding rapport with his students and through careful instruction he quickly sorts out equipment issues and establishes solid playing fundamentals. His students are always well-prepared for either their ensemble experience or upcoming events and auditions. As a result, David’s studio was consistently the most represented in the all-county, all-state, and  local youth orchestra programs.” 

Scott Herman –  Music Director, Cabin John Middle School, Potomac, MD. 

“Mr. Levin was my orchestra teacher at Churchill High School. He was also the conductor of the MCYO Philharmonic Orchestra. Mr. Levin made orchestra fun. He picks great music, and besides being a fantastic teacher and conductor, I love the way he plays trumpet. He played in the pit with us for the Churchill production of Kiss Me Kate. Wow!”

Joshua Coyne – Former student and music major at the Manhattan School of Music.

“I studied with Mr. Levin for four years and highly recommend him to anyone looking for private lessons. While in MD, he taught a very large and successful private studio for 35 years. Many of his students were regularly placed in state honors ensembles and youth orchestras. He is also an accomplished performer, having studied with past members of the National Symphony Orchestra. An added bonus– he always has many friendly dogs at his house. If anyone anyone in the Pittsburgh area is looking for a private teacher, I highly recommend David Levin!”

Gabe Slesinger – Former  trumpet student and music major at the Rice University School of Music

“David Levin is a wonderful, experienced teacher who has produced terrific students consistently year after year. Not only do his students respond well to his teaching, they genuinely like him as a person and get infected with his passion for music making. He is also rare in the sense that he plays trumpet beautifully and yet he is a nice and humble person. He gets my highest recommendation.

Ken Wolff – Shires Trombone Artist and Teacher

“Your retirement from our school system was definitely a huge loss.  You were a terrific resource to many for all things trumpet and your new students will soon realize how lucky they are to have you as their teacher!
