DAVID JOSEPH VIRONE
Folsom Prison Blues
Can't Help Falling in Love (Fingerstyle)
David Joseph Virone is a performing artist with focus on early childhood development and senior lifestyle enrichment. Coming from a small farming town, he found inspiration to become a musician from his father who played guitar for him as a child. He has a diverse history of music endeavors from church choir and high school jazz band to composing for film and playing in rock bands. With a command of over a dozen different instruments including guitar, mandolin, bass and banjo, to name a few, David feels that his strongest connection to others and community is through music. Engaging his audience with energy, a big smile is always his signature.
David also leads inter-generational performances. A lead instructor with the well-known music education group Music for Aardvarks, David brings together young and old alike with his music workshops that are designed to be enjoyed by multiple age groups.
David spent the 2018/19 school year teaching music classes at Germantown United Methodists Preschool and for kindergarten at Perea Elementary. He is focusing his summer on facilitating senior music classes at Hearthside of Collierville and private music therapy sessions. As a freelance artist and also in partnership with Creative Aging and David can be found entertaining at various elderly communities around the Memphis area with traditional American folk, gospel and popular music ranging from the 20’s to the 60’s.
