About Me

Hi, my name is Dave. I'm a Musician, Composer, Guitar, Piano & Bass tutor with over 15 years of experience. After receiving a degree in Jazz and Contemporary Music, I was privileged to enjoy a fruitful career not only as a music teacher but also as a full-time composer and performer, both live and in the studio.

Music which I composed, performed and recorded was screened in over 25 film festivals worldwide. One of my films, called “Crumble”, is starring Amanda Hale and was selected for BAFTA, won the Silver Remi Award at the 50th Worldfest Houston Film Festival (USA) and was the Official Selection of the 17th East End Film Festival (London).

Among many other things, I also composed and produced music for Patreon sponsored gaming-series “Cool Ghosts”, Tesco Promotional campaign and the album “Warped Tension”, published by Evolution Media (i.a. Film4/ESPN/EMI).

Composing for Films

Performing Live

Performing in the Studio

My musical journey began with playing guitar in local rock bands as a teenager. While starting out with fairly simple pop/rock songs, I slowly gravitated towards more progressive genres that allowed the fusion of my many musical influences, ranging from chamber music to hard rock, electronic and trip-hop.

Following my graduation from the Jerusalem Academy, where I received a degree in jazz and contemporary music, I became head of the Guitar department in the municipal conservatory of Ashkelon city.
There, among daily teaching duties, I would start writing orchestral arrangements for the annual graduation concerts.

At the age of 26, I formed an alternative band called Laid8, along with which I was lucky enough to participate in many music festivals around the world and record three releases.

Lead single “Flush” from our debut album “These Faded Lines” gathered considerable radio airplay, which led to a deal with Kent-based management agency Factory Music ltd.

Around that time, I was also approached with a request to help to finalize the musical accompaniment in a couple of theater plays. That experience was so rewarding and refreshing that I started to explore scoring further, subsequently composing for many other productions outside of theater while combining traditional acoustic instruments with modern cutting-edge programming and synthesis.

Piano and Guitar Classes for Entry levels, Beginners, and Intermediates
I teach Entry level, Beginner, and Intermediate Piano and Guitar lessons. I focus on different styles, techniques, and rhythms, with a broad base of musical genre. These classes are designed for aspiring musicians with some musical background and also those with little or none. The aim of each lesson is to keep the student at the peak of each of their abilities by giving both challenging new pieces and reinforcing and expanding their own knowledge. I also put some emphasis on incorporating students' own personal musical tastes and styles to bring their own passion to the music they want to play.

The program will be tailored according to the student goals. (leisure, professional development) focusing on; basic knowledge of the guitar, basic chords and more advanced chords, scales and modes, theory and practice of improvisation, study of a repertoire, right hand technique (fingers or pick), music theory and rhythm. An understanding of what are the goals and interests of student, as well as their skills is the most effective way to pass on knowledge.
