About Me

On occasion, David finds time to write, record and produce pieces of his own - the world seen through his "grown-up" eyes. He is trying to do more of this.

Meanwhile, he spends most of his audio time on the following:

“See” the world through third grade ears

Unable to run away and join a public radio station, David instead developed an audio-production curriculum for his eight and nine-year-old students at North Shore Country Day School in Winnetka, IL, a suburb just north of Chicago. Thus, “Third Grade Audio” was born.

From personal narratives to profiles, audio collages to site specific audio tours, short list poetry to national and international audio exchanges, the third graders - as well as the occasional elementary school peer - capture aspects of life, which might go unnoticed, or seem inconsequential, to those with "older" eyes and ears.

While learning the art and craft of audio production, the students write, record and produce pieces - collaboratively with David or on their own with a classmate - which document the world as seen, heard and experienced by third graders.
