David L.

David - River Music School London

Tutor of Saxophone, Piano and Music Theory

 

A South East London based musician specialising in piano and saxophone, David began playing piano when he was just three years old and saxophone when he was eleven. Being fortunate enough to grow up in a musical household, he quickly discovered the many benefits of music. David doesn't believe that anyone needs to subscribe to only one or two types of music when there is such a colourful array of sounds and styles that affect us in different ways. 

 

David achieved a First-Class Honours BA in Music from the University of Southampton and was awarded the Hazel-Muras Osbourne Competition Prize for best composer on the course. Since then, he has worked professionally as a (primarily tenor) saxophone player for jazz ensembles, functions, artists and tribute bands up and down the country. As a teacher, David aim to help students develop their own sound, either by working through the ABRSM and/or Trinity syllabus (classical or jazz) or simply by exploring and playing the music they are interested in.
