Composer

I am currently Professor of Music and the Music Industry Program Director at Delaware State University in Dover, Delaware.  I have enjoyed this tenured position since 2012.

As a pianist, I was discovered by the legendary Johnny Carson on THE TONIGHT SHOW at the age of twenty-five and was invited back to perform a second time shortly thereafter. (discovery by Carson moment video available on Youtube).  I have performed at The White House for three Presidents and toured Europe with Jon Anderson's group 'YES.'

 

In 2018, I traveled to China as a Music Ambassador for Delaware State University.  I Presented  and performed as a featured Pianist at Changchun University.

 

As a composer, I have worked for ABC, NBC and CBS.  I have also authored a two-hour orchestral soundtrack for DISNEYLAND,  PARIS.  Since 1992, my score has played eighteen hours a day, 365 days a year in DISCOVERYLAND, PARIS.  The same soundtrack has also played daily in DISNEYLAND, TOKYO. 

In addition, Steven Spielberg, contracted me to compose and produce the music and sound track for an online interactive video game titled: 'STARBRIGHT WORLD.'

 

My current focus is teaching and composing musicals. To date, I have completed nine musicals with two more in development. -  David L. Tolley, Professor of Music
