I am so pleased David Sargent is part of HolySheetMusic.com David Sargent was my most influential composition teacher. He always pushed me. He recognized the talent and molded my ability to think, create and perform as a musician. He pushed my boundaries of tonality to create amazing music that really had no tonal center, and yet, it really did. There was always a focus on musicality.
Here’s a little more about David Sargent:

Laycock University Professorship for Music Composition for ten years before retiring in 2008.
