“My son studied piano with David for 2 years (first and second grade). I was amazed at David’s ability to challenge my son while sustaining patience with the needed repetition for a 5 year old! David was able to strike a perfect balance between rigor and gentleness. My son developed a deep admiration for David and has continued to expand upon the solid foundation received (he is 9 now).”

“I studied with David for two years. Throughout my studies with David, I had numerous scheduling complications due to both my academic studies and a full time job. David was extremely accommodating and worked very hard to find lesson times that worked with my schedule.  As a teacher, David possesses a wonderful combination of the desire to push a student into unexplored technical areas in their compositions and an affinity for helping students develop their own musical voice. David possesses an extensive knowledge of repertoire and is always able to provide students with recommended works to study in terms of their own current compositional goals. My current compositional style retains many of the techniques that I honed under David, and I highly recommend him as an instructor.”
