With Roger’s help, David developed his musical ear and focused on the details of improving his guitar skills. He also developed his skills for composition, arrangement and the importance collaborative instrumentation with other musicians. David’s application of these skills can be heard throughout his repertoire. Expanding his horizons, and as his voice was maturing, David became associated with and studied under the direction of David Serkin-Poole, professional vocalist, tenor, and Senior Cantor of Temple B’nai Torah in Bellevue, Washington. The two have worked collaboratively for the past eight plus years, as Frank has continued to develop his voice as an instrument and an extension of his musical creativity.
To further hone his skills, Frank also studied voice at Studio East (performing arts) in Kirkland, WA and has completed his Vocal Performance minor from the University of Oregon. David has been writing and recording music since he began playing guitar. When he is not collaborating with other musicians, he composes, arranges and records all of the instruments himself in his developing recording studio.

He is currently in the studio with long-time band mate, Ben Bateman, composing and recording music as Fight the Moon, in an original, fresh, contemporary acoustic-electric genre utilizing the current advancement of digital audio composition. David and Ben’s collaboration and partnership reflects their skills as writers and performers, singers and musicians, inspiring the most out of each other’s talents. In addition to devoting his time and efforts to writing and producing music, David is currently working towards a Bachelor of Science degree at the University Of Oregon School Of Business Administration, focusing on entrepreneurial management.
