My Experience = Your experience
Here’s what I’ve experienced so far:
I’ve been teaching extensively for 7 years. This includes privately at the home studio as well as casually at several institutions such as John Paul College and Ormiston College.
Teaching is my passion.
Now for what I’ve achieved so far:
David Freisberg started playing the cello at the age of five. In the beginning, he learned the instrument under the guidance of his mother Helena Fernandez Munoz for most of his youth. In his early teens, he undertook cello studies with Brisbane based cello teacher Mei-Lee Stocker, with whom he achieved his AMusA with distinction in 2008, and his LMusA in 2011, along with many regional and state prizes. David was chosen twice as finalist in the Queensland Orchestra Concerto Competition in 2010, and 2011 in which he graciously received a loan Cello by modern Cremonese maker Virgilio Capelini. David chose to pursue a career in music, and has since commenced studying at the University of Queensland under the guidance of cellist Patrick Murphy. During his time in tertiary study David has been a finalist of the 2012 Brisbane International Youth Music Festival Competition, placed second twice in the University’s string prize as well in 2014 winning the University’s Bach Prize and placing 2nd in the Australian Vocal and Concerto Competition. David owes much of his growth as a musician to the Australian Youth Orchestra, the Queensland Youth Symphony as well as the Winterschool of the Australian Chamber Music Festival. In 2014 David performed in the Lucas Parklands Young Musician Festival in Montville, Sunshine Coast with rising talent such as Anna Da Silva Chen and Sam Lucas. He has performed in master classes with Tasmin Little, The Takacs Quartet, The Tokyo String Quartet and for world-renown cellists Pieter Wispelwey, Li Wei Qin, Markho Ylonen, Julian Smiles, Trey Lee, Wolfgang Emmanuel Schmidt and Howard Penny. In the past two years David has been fortunate to perform several concertos with the Corda Spiritus Orchestra as well as the Queensland Youth Symphony and Redlands Simphonia. This playing and learning experience has allowed David to have better understanding for his students.
David has taught privately since the age of seventeen and continues to do so with great enjoyment. Since then he has taught casually at John Paul College, Vivo College of Music Sunnybank as well as Ormiston College.
