Speaks: English
Instructs: Bass Guitar, Guitar, Trombone, Tuba
Education: Bachelor's of Music Performance - University of Texas at Arlington (2012) Master's of Music Performance - University of Texas at Arlington (2016)
Performance Experience: 20+ years playing tuba, ranging from concert bands and orchestras to jazz ensembles and pop groups. 10+ years playing bass. Played in more informal settings early on but have been finding more serious situations on the instrument in the past four years.
Teaching Experience: Have been teaching public school low brass lessons, largely in Arlington and the surrounding areas since 2012.
Teaching Philosophy: My philosophy is that teachers should be pragmatic, and flexible when it comes to teaching a range of different students who will all inherently have different needs and goals in their pursuit of a music education. To aid students in achieving these personal goals in whatever way best suits them is my goal as an educator.

Originally from Allen, Texas, David began playing tuba in 6th grade. In middle school and high school he received various accolades, including participating in Texas all-region and all-state bands, receiving outstanding soloist at the UIL state solo competition, and being a finalist in the Leonard Falcone International Tuba Euphonium Competition. 
After high school David decided to pursue an education in music performance at the University of Texas at Arlington. Completing his bachelor's in 2012, he went back in 2014 to pursue a master's of performance, completing that in 2016. 
During his bachelor's degree he began learning bass guitar, mostly learning by ear, but also taking lessons from the electric bass teacher at UTA.
