Born and raised in Fredericton, New Brunswick, David has been playing and teaching guitar for over twenty years. After obtaining a B.A. (philosophy major; music minor) from the University of New Brunswick, and doing graduate work in philosophy at the University of Toronto, David chose to pursue music full-time. Since then, he has played in musical theatre pit bands, jazz bands, cruise ship show bands, and is a regular on the Toronto open mic scene. In addition, he has composed music for a wide range of projects, including the CBC, the award-winning web series Space Janitors, and most recently the feature film, Pure Pwnage: Teh Movie. His Space Janitors work earned him a 2015 IAWTV award nomination for Best Original Music.

David has always felt teaching is a important part of a well-rounded musician’s life, and one of the most rewarding. He has taught all popular styles of music, including rock, pop, blues, jazz, country and classical, and has prepared students for both university entrance examinations and RCM examinations. He consistently tailors his approach to the needs and interests of the individual student, emphasizing the importance of both short-term and long-term goal setting, and of infusing one’s playing with emotion, rather than simply playing the correct notes. He looks forward to bringing his passion, drive, and love of music to students at Yellow Dog Music, helping them give music a special place in their own lives.

David can teach in both English and French.
