The trombone is the primary instrument that he's been playing for over a decade now.

These instruments offered new challenges and have proven to be rewarding in allowing new and different musical perspectives and collaboration opportunities.
David is currently completing his final year of University and hopes to continue teaching upon graduation. With his degree, he hopes to work within a major symphony orchestra or similar ensemble and eventually gain a position as a composer in residence.
