Mr David Davies

Mr Davies read music at the University of Durham before training as a luthier at the Newark School of Violin Making. He taught ‘cello and double bass both privately and in several primary and secondary schools in Nottinghamshire, including providing lessons funded by cellist Sheku Kannneh-Mason at his former school. In 2014, Mr Davies was the recipient of the Mark Jones award for outstanding musicianship and he has performed all around South Wales, County Durham, Lancashire and Nottinghamshire as part of quartets/trios for weddings, functions and several high profile events, notably including a dinner hosted by the Lord Lieutenant of West Glamorgan in 2012 and for the premier of a newly commissioned mass for Christmas eve at Lancaster Priory in 2017. He has also played orchestrally across Europe, counting Italy, Germany, Hungary, France and Slovenia among places visited. He has also been involved with organising the National Scout and Guide Symphony Orchestra, of which he used to be a member.

 

 

 

Excellent teaching, good ensemble opportunities. Encouragement and support for exams and competitions. Eve has really enjoyed her saxophone lessons and the ensembles and has progressed well. It has been a great opportunity for her to borrow the baritone sax to play in the ensembles. Thank you to all at JMS!

I like how kind and supportive the staff are. I like how the staff approach problems with solutions rather than barriers. I like how the staff understand childhood development in an holistic way. I like how the staff respect the voice of the child. Thank you so much to John Pearse, a more patient and caring teacher you couldn't hope to find.
