  • About:
    A native of New York City, David came to Detroit with his family at the age of five. He
    would spend his formative years in the Motor City. As a child, he began learning to play
    the saxophone in public school and started to noodle around on the family’s old upright
    piano. As a young teenager, he became aware of the power music has in creating mood.
    This revelation was to have a profound influence on the course of David’s life. Simply put,
    he felt music was the best way to positively effect people on this planet. Upon graduating
    from The University of Michigan with a degree in General Studies and after years of self-directed
    music studies and gigs, he made the decision to make music his life.
    He moved to Boston and studied classical piano with Madame Margaret Chaloff and jazz
    piano with Charles Banacos. David also studied saxophone with Joe Viola, head of the
    woodwind department at The Berklee School of Music. Largely self-educated as a writer,
    David continues to this day to probe the depths of music both as a composer and student of
    the art form.
    He has scored radio, television, and industrial film projects for clients like J. Walter
    Thompson, McDonald's, Y&R, BBDO, WTVS television, Masco, K-Mart, Budweiser,
    Doner, MichCon and Ford Motor Company. David’s original music has been broadcast
    on the Weather Channel. He has written the signature themes for several Detroit television
    shows and in 1996 won a Michigan Emmy for Gunsense, an award-winning project
    produced by Detroit Public Television.
    As a studio owner, David uses Digital Performer and Logic Pro and is well versed in many
    styles of musical expression.
    As a performing artist David has shared the stage with Jon Luc Ponty, Stanley Clark, Peter
    Frampton, John McLaughlin, Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh, Bryan Adams, Brian Setzer, Robert
    Cray and many others. In 2011 he composed and performed music for the Sam Raimi film
    "Oz: The Great and Powerful". David continues to perform as a saxophonist and pianist
    in a variety of musical settings.
