David Hall (MA (Cantab) FRCO) is a versatile musician who is equally at home playing cathedral evensong, running a children’s choir or directing a big band. He studied the piano with Laura Cole and the organ with Anne Marsden Thomas at the Royal Academy of Music. In 1996 he was appointed organ scholar at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.
David is now the Director of Music at Twyford School in Hampshire, a role he combines with freelance work accompanying, conducting and composing. Under his leadership, the children at Twyford School have taken part in five professional operas at Grange Park and have recorded two CDs. David’s most recent publication is a children’s musical “The Mysterious Monster of Loch Ness”.
David has spent thousands of hours at the piano accompanying soloists and choirs. He has accompanied and conducted the National Children’s Choir of Great Britain as well as several choral societies and his own chamber choir, Viva Voces. He is always in demand to accompany exam candidates from prep tests to diplomas.
David has received rave reviews for the piano courses he has directed at Finchcocks, with Giles Smith of the Sunday Times, who attended one of his courses at Finchcocks, describing him as a “musical powerhouse” and students of the courses regularly rating them as “life changing”.
David is a member of EPTA (European Piano Teachers Association).
