Vocal Studio

A protégé of the late voice pedagogue Richard Miller and current student of the legendary voice teacher, Patricia McCaffrey, David offers vocal instruction both in person and remotely. As a voice researcher, he has co-authored articles with Miller on vocal acoustics and received research grants from the McNair Foundation and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. He regularly teaches workshops and masterclasses for academic institutions throughout the U.S. and Canada, including Mannes School of Music, Rice University Sheperd School of Music, Oberlin Conservatory, University of Texas, and San Diego State University. He has served on the guest faculty of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute and Mannes School of Music at the New School. He also serves on the advisory boards of San Diego Opera’s Opera Hack and Austin Opera’s Innovation Council, where he collaborates with other thought leaders and technologists from major corporations and cultural institutions to find new paths forward from the intersection of art and technology.
