Teaching Artist

DavidWallace_Violist_Violinist_Composer_Teaching_Artist_530_smaller_new_CroppedI love music.  For as long as I can remember, I have reached out to connect others to diverse repertoire, and drawn out their own perspectives and passions.  As an independent artist and an ambassador for the world’s leading cultural institutions, I enjoy building musical bridges across cultures.

I believe creativity is a birthright. At any given opportunity, I empower others to improvise and compose, and I fervently engage my listener’s minds and imaginations.

I am a Senior Teaching Artist for the New York Philharmonic, and the author of Reaching Out: A Musician’s Guide to Interactive Performance.  See real-life examples of my book’s principles in this YouTube playlist:
