David Kraft began teaching in the fall of 2008, starting at Huffines Middle School in Lewisville. While at Huffines, he taught all beginning woodwind classes including clarinet, flute, saxophone, and a combined oboe/bassoon class. He was the conductor of the Symphonic Band where he continually improved the already high performance standards.
Originally from Porterville, California, Mr. Kraft grew up in a very musically rich community. He had plenty of performance opportunities across the nation, including a Christmas Performance at the White House in 2001. Starting the clarinet in the 4th grade, Mr. Kraft knew from a young age that music was going to be a major part of his life. Graduating from The University of North Texas in the summer of 2008, he has performed with the Northwest Community Orchestra, UNT Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band and was a recording soloist for the Green Brigade, UNT’s marching band. He is currently a member of the Meridian Chamber Winds ensemble, and remains active in performing clarinet throughout the DFW area.
