Accompanists

David’s biggest passion has always been to create and play music that moves people and to teach others to do the same.  Trained classically on the piano from age seven, David began to expand his repertoire to jazz, pop, rock and bossa nova in high school.  Throughout university and beyond, David loved exploring music from other cultures, such as klezmer, salsa, Turkish folk, and French chanson.  David enjoys performing for audiences of all ages and seeing the joy that people get from the music.

David also plays accordion and guitar!
