      David, our Director

      David Doherty joined Forte in 2008 and under the guidance of Forte’s creator Gillian Erskine to soon become the proud owner manager of Forte Music in Toowong & Coorparoo.

      As a graduate of the Queensland Conservatorium David was awarded the Conservatorium guitar prize in 2003. David then went on to travel and live in Japan, Canada and the US.

      Teaching and performing in those countries proved the bedrock for a life of teaching and sharing music.

    • “Seeing students young and old learn and go from strength to strength is tremendously rewarding for me and my team” 

      “Cannot speak more highly of the team at Coorparoo. My child absouletly loves his class and teacher. We look forward to music every week. The teacher is experienced and has a brilliant and relatable style with the children who all clearly love her.”
