Student Snapshot - David Woodward - Music Production

Many kids have high goals, but David Woodward has a goal like no other. He aims to complete an album of 5 songs for his ISM final product due in may. He is writing, recording, producing, and mixing all of the songs himself and under the guidance of his mentor Jonathan Camacho. Along with the album, David also aspires to create a music video for one of the songs as well as get the album published on all major music platforms. He said "Taking the ISM class was one of the best decisions I made, I have learned so much and am still constantly learning. This is the beauty of ISM, you are always learning and being pushed to do your best." Outside of ISM, David is involved in the LHS band program playing percussion and guitar in the jazz orchestra. He is also heavily involved at his church, Elevate Life, where he plays guitar and works in the studio.
