David McCoy (MM, University of British Columbia, YEAR) received a Bachelor of Music (highest graduating average) and a Master of Music Degree in Piano Performance from the University of British Columbia, where he studied with Robert Silverman. He furthered his studies at the Banff School of Fine Arts where he participated in master classes with Gyorgy Sebok, John Perry and Menahem Pressler.

In addition to Capilano University, McCoy has had teaching positions at the University of British Columbia, Douglas College and has been an examiner for the Royal School of Music. With over 30 years of teaching experience in post-secondary institutions, he has taught numerous competition winners who presently have successful careers in music. McCoy utilizes a methodical and detailed approach to the preparation of performances, juries, competitions and auditions. Technique building strategies include injury prevention.

My teaching philosophy emphasizes the unique circumstances and background of each student and seeks to help them achieve their individual goals.
