David begin his piano studies at the age of five, getting lessons from his grandmother, Margot Henry, before receiving scholarships to study with Dr. John O¹Connor in the Royal Irish Academy of Music, and Dr. Mabel Swainson at the Leinster School of Music.
He has since performed in numerous venues throughout the UK and Ireland, including the National Concert Hall (Dublin). He has won prizes in major competitions in Dublin, Sligo, Belfast, Derry, Ballymena, Arklow, and Moville.
David has just graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music, which he attended with the help of the Dora Gilson Scholarship, and studied with John Gough.
