Tutor : David Clarke LTCL, CTABRSM
 
Violin

David moved to County Galway from the UK in 2003 and since then has taught violin privately, with Galway VEC and at Clare Music Makers in Ennis.

He worked for many Music services in the North of England and ran his own Music Service for a while.

In the UK, he was very active working with string ensembles, and groups of children, and spent some time, while studying for my teaching diploma, with Penny Stirling at The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester on her Junior String Project.

Before this, he was involved in a popular music group 'signed' to an independent label 'Probe Plus Records', and during this time toured Europe and the UK, and produced two Albums and many twelve inch singles. David has found this experience to be invaluable in his work with young children, especially teenagers. He gained experience in the recording industry, and composed, and recorded many string arrangements for other groups.

He has played in string quartets for many years and is presently a member of The Corrib String Quartet based in Galway.

He has played with members of the Halle Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Manchester Camerata and many others.

'My teaching is based on a belief that given time and patience, anyone can learn an instrument, and I have enjoyed realising the potential that lies within everybody to express themselves musically.'
