Bio on David C. Larson
Violin Performance – Beginning violin lessons in 1970 at age 7, I was among the first group of students to study the Suzuki Method of Violin under Ernest Kassian at the Conservatory of Music in Regina Saskatchewan. Mr. Kassian, a highly acclaimed Canadian violinist, violist, teacher, and music adjudicator was the founder of the first Suzuki violin programs in Alberta at the University of Alberta, and in Saskatchewan at the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan.
From 1974 to 1981, I had the great fortune to study violin with Dr. Howard Leyton-Brown. Formerly a student of the renown European violinists and pedagogues Carl Flesch and Max Rostal, Dr. Leyton-Brown served as Concert Master for the London Philharmonic Orchestra in England, Concert Master of the Regina Symphony, Director of Regina’s Conservatory of Music and Director of the music program and faculty at the University of Regina. Dr. Leyton-Brown enjoyed acclaim as a solo performer throughout Europe and North America and was awarded The Order of Canada – Lifetime Award for Excellence in the Arts 1991, The Saskatchewan Order of Merit 1996, and The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal in 2002.
During my time studying violin in Regina, I was an active member of the Regina Youth Orchestra, the South Saskatchewan Youth Symphony and participated in many Conservatory Canada violin competitions winning numerous first and second place awards for solo performance.
