"My 12 year old son has been taking DJ classes with David and is really enjoying it! David is very patient and encouraging and also very accommodating with our time. It took us awhile to figure out what our son wanted to do musically and when we stumbled upon Night Vision Academy, it was perfect" - Anne Via Facebook
