Jazzed In Church Charts/Arrangements
Whether it's Jazz, Caribbean, Choral, or Gospel, David Arivett has written and performed it. He writes music that truly evokes an emotional response. Songs of hope and healing, feelin' alright songs, his music has a profound emotional effect on listeners.
David demonstrated early on his musical gifts and started singing in public at the age of 4. David continued to develop his musical gifts and took up the violin and viola in addition to his singing. He was first chair viola in the California All State Orchestra. He also sang a leading role in the Broadway Musical, "Brigadoon" in high school. Singing in High School Acapella Choir/Madrigals helped cultivate David's love for choral singing.
At 13 years of age David started playing the piano by ear, and this began a lifetime of a rich and meaningful learning experience in ear training, harmony, and theory. His major in college was music, and David soon became the concert choir accompanist, and continued his musical studies in piano, voice, and composition. In addition, he sang and arranged for a gospel quartet and sang in churches across America. It was in church where David was first exposed to Jazz and David's passion for Jazz and all its derivatives has grown immeasurably!
After attending College David began a career directing music in churches conducting choirs/bands in various churches. One major highlight in David's Music Director experience was when he produced a very effective "live" worship CD in 1991, "Exuberant Praise" that has touched the lives of thousands! Having a hot choir, orchestra, rhythm section was a great inspiration for David's music.
David has written music for television, radio jingles, production libraries and he has produced and/or performed on many recordings, including jazz, gospel, blues, Latin jazz, and many other jazz flavors. Piano and Keyboards are David's main instruments. In addition, David is a superb vocalist, arranger and clinician.
David's latest CD project is "Great To Be Alive!". In 2005 David release "Jazzed And Glad". In 2002 David recorded and produced, "Island Fun" a Latin tropical jazz-flavored jazz CD. Other best sellers are "Keyboard Meditations", and "Prayerful Meditations", which contains David's recordings of his beautiful piano, keyboard, and production skills.
David presently operates Songs Of David Studio where he arranges, produces, and records his music as well as other clients.
He is also actively involved in celebrating the gift of music and creativity in churches, concerts, and workshops. David has a keyboard instruction book, "Jazz Yer Blues" which contains a series of lessons for taking simple 12 bar blues and jazzing it up. Also David has over 50 arrangements/charts entitled "Jazzed In Church".
Work is underway for a book about David's search and journey for God. To sample his writing read his articles: The Wonder Of Creativity or Are You Really Listening?
