Dave Tauler Feel the Music
Dave Tauler plays 28 instruments, speaks Korean, Spanish and English, and is immersed in all three cultures.
Tauler has a degree in music performance from the University of Maryland, and works as the music teacher for Montrose Christian School in the Washington, DC, area.
The Dave Tauler Music Group #DTMGus is the outcome of a life committed to teaching, performing and creating music. Inspired by great bandleaders like Sting and Stevie Wonder, Dave needed a dynamic outlet to exercise his collection of talents, which led to the creation of the Dave Tauler Music Group. Unlike most bands, DTMG is an ever-changing collective of musicians who work interchangeably to address a variety of musical styles.
K-pop found Dave unexpectedly in 2004 when he was recruited to be bandleader and backing vocalist for Kim Bum Soo when Kim gave his premier concert in Washington, DC.
Dave continued his music career which included winning both the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and Amateur Night at the World Famous Apollo Theater.
Recently, Dave was surfing YouTube when he was captured by the melodies in “Lonely” by K-pop superstars 2NE1. Tauler was so moved by the song that he was compelled to create an original arrangement of it. DTMG will debut its neo-soul remix of “Lonely” on YouTube this Valentine’s Day.
The son of a Chilean father and Caucasian-American mother, Dave learned Korean as a 17-year old, when he began serving as a youth minister in a Washington, DC, area Korean church. He has been immersed in Korean-American culture ever since.
K-pop may have found Dave, but he has embraced it and is excited to contribute his talents and that of the Dave Tauler Music Group to the success of the movement..
Apollo Amateur Night and John Lennon Contest winner, David Tauler is a singer, songwriter, & multi-instrumentalist creating a hybrid of rock and soul.
