My name is David Brogan and I am a freelance Songwriter. I am also a recital level pianist and piano teacher.
As a songwriter I have had four Top Three songs, (two #1s, a #2, and a #3) on multiple internet chart sites, including (Soundclick/NumberOneMusic/Garageband). I have been advised and mentored by musical illuminaries such as John Braheny-(Diane Warren, Stevie Nicks, Best-selling author), Joe Solo-(Macy Gray, Will.I.Am, Fergie), Davey Ray Moor-(Cousteau,TV composer, BAFTA winner), Richard Parfitt-(Duffy, Dido), Alex del Zoppo-(Sweetwater, also toured as keyboardist with The Beach Boys and Eric Bourdon), Obi Mhondera and Tim Hawes -(5x #1 hits, including Ivor Novello award for Hear’Say hit ‘Pure and Simple’).
As of 30th September 2012, I will have completed a Masters Degree in Songwriting with BathSpa university in the UK.
I already hold an BA(Hons) Degree in Music, a DipMus, and CertMusEd(TCL). I have taught piano at every level from complete beginners to Diploma level and beyond for over 25 years.

Feel free to email or call me in the first instance to discuss your project or needs. I offer lessons, critiques, and coaching services in a variety of formats, including face-to-face, via Skype, and/or as written documents.
