David has been involved in music and keyboard since age 7. His interest was sparked by the pianos and organs they had at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry and those on display at the local Sears store! He took home lessons during childhood. In high school, David studied pipe organ at Rockefeller Chapel at the University of Chicago and at Roosevelt University’s Chicago Musical College. He also sang in choir throughout high school and college. As a music major, he attended Roosevelt University’s Chicago Musical College, Indiana University Bloomington, and St. Olaf College. He was organist/choir director at Hyde Park United Methodist Church in Hammond for many years and later joined the Woodmar family as organist. David has a bachelor and master degree in social work.
David lives with his daughter, Chessie, a 16 year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever. He enjoys family, friends, flying and food!
