"Taking composition lessons with David Vess has been one of the best decisions I have made on my journey.
Mr. Vess has helped prepare me as I continue on to Berklee College of music to complete a degree in film scoring.
Through these lessons I believe he has made me not only a better composer, but also a better person as well."
