David Ghesser is a 2021 Graduate of UCLA’s Herb Alpert School of Music where he majored in Music Composition.
In 2019, with Brian Wilson, along with close to 500 people in attendance in Schoenberg Hall, David was introduced by Professor David Leaf as the inaugural recipient of the Brian Wilson Scholarship Award for composing, arranging and producing popular music. Brian Wilson had David’s “Dear Mr. California,” a song written in honor of him uploaded to his social media platforms where it was heard by Brian’s fans along with a 2nd song, "I Could Have Missed You."
In 2020, UCLA‘s Herb Alpert School of Music chose David’s “Just Be Happy” to close its virtual graduation celebration.
As part of David's graduation from The Herb Alpert School in 2021 he composed a series of piano pieces which he called "14 Piano Bagatelles." These pieces showcase his skills at writing contemporary classical music.
