Personal Description:

David is an Oxford-based composer and pianist. A former president of the Oxford University Music Society and manager of OUMS Chamber Music, David has recently graduated from the University of Oxford with a first class BA. At Oxford, David was awarded performance and academic scholarships, as well as a scholarship to perform with Ensemble ISIS – the University's new music ensemble. David currently studies piano with Ronan O'Hora, Head of Keyboard Studies and Advanced Performance Studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and composition with Richard Barrett in The Hague.

Before beginning his composition studies with Robert Saxton in Oxford, David studied composition with Matthew Sergeant and piano with Jonathan Middleton at the Junior Royal Northern College of Music, which he attended from 2012-2016. Awards at the JRNCM include the Peter Redfearn Memorial Prize for Composition (2014), the Director's Prize (2015), and the Friends of the Junior RNCM Ensemble Prize (2016).

In his time as a composer for the National Youth Orchestra GB (2014 and 2015), David's compositions were performed in the Britten Studio of the Snape Maltings Concert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Tate Britain, the Southbank Centre, and the Music Room of Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.

Tutoring Experience:

c. Four years' private piano, theory, and academic music tutoring. 5* 'premium tutor' status on MyTutor platform.

Tutoring Approach:

My lessons are tailored to the needs of the individual student. The frequency of lessons is variable, as is the amount of work I set between them. I am happy to teach students of all ages and abilities, and do not dictate a graded examination route (or similar) to students if this is not the most productive way to proceed in their individual circumstance.
