Upon graduating with a dual degree with honors in oboe and piano performance, David performed with various symphony orchestras, concert bands, choirs and opera companies around Scotland and beyond. He has also obtained certified ABRSM and Trinity Guildhall distinction and merits in advanced grades of oboe and piano performance. David was then admitted with scholarship to Westminster Choir College (Princeton) where he achieved a masters degree in Theory and Composition.
David's vocal training is primarily from a method coined as 'Yoga Voice,’ and has taken intensive courses in the practice, which combines the ideals of yoga and the training of operatic vocal training. He regularly performs in a variety of vocal styles, from opera crossing into contemporary musical theatre and modern styles. He has been a featured soloist and choral member in Grammy-nominated Williamson Voices, the Same Stream community of singers, and the Jubilee Singers. As a composer, he has received a number of awards and publishings with GIA Publications, and works freelance as both a composer and performer in his range of styles.
