In Praise of David...

“My daughter's violin playing progressed immensely with David Katz as her teacher.  David has a great ability to bring out her musicality and helped her develop a more mature sound.  One of David's strongest points is his ability to choose pieces for his students which are both interesting and challenging, allowing his students to reach beyond what they thought was possible.” 

    “David Katz brings an unique blend of teaching skills and performance skills to his students.  His own performance experiences give his students a unique and enriched perspective on playing the violin.”
- Dave and Pam Conroy

    “David Katz has been one of our most ‘in demand’ violin teachers simply because he’s that good!  He combines patience with encouragement and expertise and has worked with many of our top violinists bringing them to levels they didn’t think were possible. He is a treasure and we are honored to have him as a faculty member and a sectional coach for McHenry County Youth Orchestras.
