David Meacock studied piano with Iris du Pré (mother of the famous ’cellist), Eric Hope (a pupil of Solomon) and Kendall Taylor at the Royal College of Music. In 1990 David completed a Masters Degree at Reading University.

He also formed the (now fully professional) A40 Concert Orchestra and, in 1995, the A40 Choir which has broadcast on Classic F.M. as well as appearing in Rouen Cathedral and in the Queen Elizabeth Hall.
