Violinist and professional certified coach for musicians
Hi there, my name is David...
And I have been a principal of the second violins at the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra for over 15 years.
I have also been living in The Netherlands since 2000, and I am an ICF-certified professional coach specializing in musicians.
Since I was young, I have wanted to be an orchestra musician.
I started pursuing this dream at 14 and have continued to do so until now.
However, I quickly realized that getting a place in an orchestra was difficult, not due to competition, level, or availability, but because I had to learn how to integrate the audition process into my life.
As a freelancer, I had to prepare for orchestra auditions and kept working, which required a solid plan that worked.
Over the last 30 years, through a long process of trial and error, I have developed a winning Professional Audition Plan.
With the tools I acquired as a coach, I have succeeded and want to help other musicians achieve the same success with less effort and fewer auditions.
My mission is to accompany other musicians by sharing everything I have learned about planning a winning audition through my Professional Audition Plan.
