David’s first instrument was Piano. At the age of 6, he proved to be a promising musical talent with an adventurous spirit, desperate to master multiple instruments. He complemented his performance studies with Percussion at the age of 8, eventually putting his focus in to marimba performance. Demonstrating his skill to teachers and directors, he was integrated into several ensembles from his native city Medellin. Touring around the country and performing at prominent theaters as the youngest musician in the Medellin Philharmonic, Colombian Philharmonic and Orquesta de Castilla y Leon, David was exposed to an ample palette of symphonic genres and instrumental colors.
