A native Houstonian, Mr. David has been playing drum set for a little over 14 years, and has been a very versatile percussionist for about 10 years. Coming from humble beginnings, Mr. David’s first steps in drum set and piano occurred while taking beginner music lessons at his church at the young age of 7. Since then, he has taken heart to the vast world of percussion, developed a strong competency in piano, and through hard work and dedication, has been fortunate enough to have been met with many successful experiences. Mr. David received his Associates Degree in Music from San Jacinto College in 2020. While there, he studied percussion under Michael Mizma, and drum set under Joel Fulgham and Luke Hubley. He was given numerous opportunities to play drum set in the SJC Steel Band under world renown guest artists such as Victor Provost, Tracy Thornton, Liam Teague, Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, and Emily Lemmerman. In addition, Mr. David has also performed multiple times in the GCIC Kemah Jazz Festival in the SJC Jazz Ensemble, performed in several seasons with the Pasadena Philharmonic Orchestra, and has played at churches and high schools throughout the Houston Area.
Mr. David is currently attending University of Houston for his bachelor’s in Music Education and is a student in the Moore’s School of Music Percussion Studio, studying under professor Alec Warren. With a deep love for teaching, Mr. David strongly believes that lives can be touched through great bonds between teacher and student, and has no doubt that anyone of all skill levels and ages can learn and grow in whatever interest they choose, especially in music. He loves sharing the joy of music with his students, and fully believes in helping them find their own path in learning and developing their musical skills. Mr. David is ecstatic to share his passion for teaching drum set and piano with the wonderful students at Allegro and is overjoyed to be a part of Allegro’s amazing faculty.
Mr. David teaches both in-studio and in-home lessons. To schedule an in-home lesson with Mr. David, please contact the Academy.
