David has an incredible command of the keys. As a performer, his clarity of sound is unmatched. He has a rigorous knowledge of classical repertoire and impeccable standards of performance. Most of all, I enjoy his life perspective. He glows with a reassuring warmth that enables him to push his students to new heights without making them feel insecure. David values the wellbeing of his students and reinforces their journey with positive affirmations for joyous communion with music and life. Highly recommend.
