Experience / Qualifications

Educated at the London College of Music and York and Cambridge Universities, and as a performer with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, David has had a diverse career, taking him across the world as a French horn player and conductor. After four years in Southern Africa working for the Bophuthatswana Arts Council, his subsequent time in the British army saw him live in Germany and Gibraltar, serve in the Balkans, Falkland Islands, Canada, Cyprus, Kenya, and lead soldiers on Operations in Afghanistan.

With the Household Cavalry, David led the mounted band on the Queen’s Birthday Parade in 2014, and he continued to work in the state arena as Director of Music, The Countess of Wessex’s String Orchestra, responsible for the music at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, and Holyrood Palace for Investitures, State Banquets, and other royal events. As an army reservist David is now Director of Music of The Band of The Royal Yeomanry (Inns of Court & City Yeomanry). As a civilian he is a French horn player and conductor, and a director of the management consultancy Get Psyched Up!

David has five degrees and holds Fellowships from the principal British music conservatoires. Following on from an MBA with the Open University, David’s PhD research combined his interests in music, strategy, and history, and forms the basis of this book.

David has participated in sports throughout his career, notably football and rugby, and has also enjoyed ‘adventure’ travelling – such as canoeing on the Zambezi and completing the Trans-Siberian Railway. He now loves spending his spare time on the Essex coast with his wife, Kate, their teenage twin daughters, Jane and Elizabeth, and large labradoodle.

The trumpet, learn to play it by making music from the first class.
The trumpet: its correct technical execution and the interpretation of popular and academic universal repertoires, is available to everyone regardless of their age. We will build a logical sequence of studies that will help develop the technical aspects. And we will address repertoires according to the age and taste of the student. we will draw a path with short, medium and long term goals. we will build a technical routine and healthy habits to progress correctly. In addition, we will select musical pieces by mutual agreement to mature the technical development hand in hand with musical growth. I am a professional trumpeter, I have participated in symphony orchestras, wind bands, big band, and small chamber and jazz ensembles. I have extensive experience teaching children, youth and adults. For me it is very important to make music from the first lesson, because there must be a balance between technical practice and its application in small melodies or musical pieces. No matter the musical genre, we will always find a repertoire according to the level and interest of each student. If you already know how to play and you need to perfect a piece or prepare a recital or audition, you can count on my experience and accompaniment as well.
