David Wheeler recently graduated cum laude from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University with a Bachelors degree in Music Education. While there, he studied classical saxophone extensively with renowned saxophonist Dr. Paul Cohen. In addition to the required solo and large group performances, David focused heavily on performing in chamber groups of all shapes, sizes, and make-ups throughout his four years at Rutgers. He had the honor of performing at the North American Saxophone Alliance (NASA) conference with his quartet, as well attending a masterclass taught by French saxophonist Claude Delangle. On the education front, David has experience working with students of all ages and all group sizes (individual through large ensemble) through the various practicum and student teaching programs at Rutgers. Since graduating, David has been establishing an actively performing saxophone quartet with his former college mates. He has a strong passion for music as well as teaching, and is very excited to share this passion with his students.
