"A refreshing reminder of what the guitar is capable of in the hands of a passionate musicion" according to the Keene Equinox. Since graduating from the prestigious Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins with a Master's and Performance Diploma in guitar, David William Ross has performed extensively across the US from Boston to LA. He plays classical-nylon, steel-string, and electric guitars, often performing classical repertoire alongside contemporary songs. He regularly takes requests in advance for arrangements of anything from Elvis to Nico alongside Canon in D, Mendelssohn, Bach, and other unique repertoire. He will also send original recordings of your arrangements to keep you in the process! An international award winning and competition guitarist that will draw from a deep repertoire of classical, flamenco, folk, popular, and jazz traditions to tailor a performance to meet your event's needs. Be it a wedding, dinner, cocktail hour, reception, corporate event, or concert, David will work with you to find the music that is perfect for your event. David is among the most sought-after collaborators in New England. An avid jazz musician, he regularly performs venues across New England in combos and big bands as well as leading his own groups in jazz clubs, concert halls, and studio sessions. He also works in many classical chamber groups with flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano. Recently, David has added studio recording and live sound production to his list of activities. Bringing his real world experience of sound, mixers, amplifiers, microphones, and acoustics to the job, David is able to provide sound for individual speeches, small ensembles, or full bands. David earned a B.M. in Guitar Performance and a B.A. in both composition and theory from Keene State College, a M.M. and a Graduate Performance Diploma from the prestigious Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University where he served as the assistant to the renowned guitar department. David's classical guitar studies have been with composer/performer Jose Lezcano, renowned teacher/performer Julian Gray, and virtuoso Scott Tennant. He has performed frequently in the masterclasses of Manuel Barrueco at Peabody, Eliot Fisk at the New England Conservatory, and Pepe Romero at the University of Southern California. David currently serves on the faculty of Fitchburg State University, the Concord Community Music School, and Elm City Music where he teaches music history, art aesthetics, guitar, and improvisation. He has also taught courses at Keene State College and the Vermont Jazz Center in music theory, ear training, and improvisation. In addition, David does session work for PARMA Recordings in Boston and greater New England.

Engagement PartyReviewed on December 18, 2016From Peterborough, NH

I proposed to my longtime girlfriend at the top of a mountain. I hired David to hike up the mountain with me and play one of our favorite songs. Although David told me that he does not sing, he was able to get a friend to join him and ended up performing an acoustic guitar duo where they both harmonized the lyrics to the song. He followed my every instruction and was able to create the scene as I had imagined it. I was very pleased with their performance (especially in the incredibly windy and freezing temperatures) as was my fiance. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a talented guitarist.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 2, 2016From Sturbridge, MA

Working with David was an absolute pleasure all the way from our initial contact through the day of the wedding. He was so easy to work with! I had heard his version of Canon in D and thought it was just beautiful. Beyond this specific song request, we did not have much in terms of ideas for music and looked to David for suggestions. He provided us many great ideas and playlists and was absolutely fantastic on the day of the wedding. We had him play during our cocktail hour, as well, and I received nothing but wonderful feedback our guests about how much they enjoyed hearing him play. We couldn't be happier with our choice to hire David to play for our wedding!
