These days I seem more likely to be giving references than asking for them, but here's a few nice things people have said about me in the past ...
Musical Administrator, Canterbury Christ Church University
"Dave Brazier is a third-year student in the Music Department at Canterbury Christ Church University. He is proficient both in clarinet and saxophone and has a great enthusiasm for both instruments. He performs regularly as soloist and in bands and orchestras, and would be a great asset to any school in a teaching capacity." (February 2008)
Prof. Grenville Hancox MBE
Director of Music, Canterbury Christ Church University
"David is a very enthusiastic and outgoing musician with a strong belief in his own ideas and means of communication. This has manifested itself in a variety of ways with his development of jazz techniques and instrumental understanding. He is a dedicated and hard-working student, who relates well to his contemporaries, is in good health and is reliable and puntual." (February 2008)
Assistant Headteacher, St. Margaret's Primary School
"... David Brazier has visited our school on two occasions. He talked to the pupils about his musical experiences and demonstrated his ability with the clarinet, saxophone and guitar. The pupils enjoyed the sessions immensly and gained much from them. David was enthusiastic and confident in front of the pupils; staff and pupils alike enjoyed both sessions." (March 2008)
