Build your confidence as a music performer with guidance from an experienced perfomer and teahcer.
Identifying innovative approaches to music education is a foundation for my teaching philosophy. I believe that fresh perspectives and new techniques are fundamental for successful learning. As a composer, I recently had works performed by new music ensembles including, loadbang, Invoke, and Hub New Music, among others. As a composition teacher, I am interested in working with high school and undergraduate degree levels, focusing on classical, contemporary, pop, rock, and songwriting. Through my teaching, I emphasize building strong compositional techniques and production skills to ensure personal growth and passion for the art. As a performer, my main instrument is the French Horn, and my secondary instrument is the keyboard. I am confident in teaching all ages and skill levels. I structure my lessons to meet the needs of each student - whether beginner or advanced, I work with individuals to evaluate their interests and abilities to use as a foundation for our work together. I strongly believe that music builds confidence, character, and helps individuals develop their unique voice and express themselves through art.
About David P.

I am a passionate composer, producer, and horn performer and my greatest joy is sharing my love of music with others! I have received performances from new music ensembles including loadbang, Hub New Music, Invoke and Anna's Ghost, and have established an eclectic career as a horn player, even performing twice at Carnegie Hall with the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra. I have served as faculty for a number of remote composition and performance tutoring platforms, and am eager to delve into an exciting journey with aspiring musicians. My curriculum will be very much based upon what the student is looking for and is far from a "one-size-fits-all" approach. I believe everyone with a passion and willingness to learn has the potential to excel and reap the benefits of a rewarding and enriching educational experience. I measure my success in my students' success, and putting students first is my number one priority.
