“I cannot say enough about David's ability with the voice and his gift in inspiring kids to sing better! He worked with my high school choral groups for approximately 5 years as a conducting clinician. David is a flexible and non-judgmental teacher who creates a safe atmosphere to try new things, and for kids to reach their full potential. His approach using yoga techniques continually amazed both my students and I as we realized how much more we could do with our voices, and how effortless singing powerfully and musically could be. His conducting and directing advice to me was also invaluable. If you are hiring David, you are hiring a musical, vocal and teaching master.”

Conducting Workshops

David works with choir, opera, and musical theatre conductors of all skill levels. Special emphasis is place on gesture, embodying the musical score, listening skills, and integrating one's musical imagination into rehearsal techniques so that vocalists are lead to sing and perform more freely, musically and joyously.
