If you are a music major then he is the way to go. If you are any other type of major look elsewhere. There are better choices than this one. You have been warned!

tells you what you need to know as a professional musician, some people just don't want to hear it or practice. in his words "just do the work"!

very unorthodox, not what i had expected from a prof. very lax, but expects you to practice and work hard at scales and music. can come off rude and mean, but funny man. some things he says may be inappropriate and offensive to some. got me a little interested in jazz tho, when last year i hated it

knows everything there is to know about jazz, and is super-talented, however his teaching style scares me in such a way that i DON'T want to be in any of his ensembles. he's very intense. it works for some people but not for others, that's all there is to it.

Dr. lalama is a great musician and professor. He was my advisor during my hofstra years and is just an all round nice person. classes were challenging but I myself having studied music since I was 7 paid off since i was admitted to the manhattan school of music as grad student. If you are a serious …more jazz/classical musician at hofstra take his class. less

Dave's a great guy. He's a tough teacher, but he cares a lot about his students and tries really hard to accentuate their strengths in the classroom, rather than focus on what they cannot do. I'd reccomend him.
