David, a recent graduate of William Paterson University, which he attended on a full scholarship, is a working jazz pianist in the greater NYC area. He has performed internationally (most recently a three month residency in Hangzhou, China) and at venues such as NJPAC, Carnegie Hall, Smoke, Mezzrow, Fat Cat, the Deer Head Inn, and the 9th Note, among others. He has shared the stage with luminaries such as Winard Harper, Duane Eubanks, Don Hahn, Bill Goodwin, Carrie Jackson, and Jerome Jennings, to name a few.
David's background in classical piano also gives him a strong base for successful piano education. He refers to the classic Russian method of piano technique and provides the student with confidence in sight reading as well as a strong understanding of music theory. His students have ranged from ages 5 to 65! David works at the student's pace, is generous with his time, provides a fun and relaxed learning atmosphere, and makes sure each person walks away from his or her lesson feeling inspired!
