Woodstock School Of Music founder Dave Dalton is a long time veteran of teaching and performing music in the McHenry County area. Early in his career, Dave studied jazz and music theory and in 1985 he opened up a recording studio, "Sound Science Studio".  Through the years he has recorded countless bands and songwriters and produces custom music for jingles and corporate videos. All of this experience gives him a depth of music knowledge that he brings to each lesson with his students. Dave teaches guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin and songwriting.
