David Alpert is a nationally recognized, award winning singer/songwriter of children and family songs.
Originally a Connecticut native, David worked as a songwriter for many years in Los Angeles, CA writing everything from jingles for advertising to musical soundtracks for commercial videos, even pop songs for publishing companies and performing artists in the music industry. David also worked for the Los Angeles Unified School District with children ranging in ages 2 through 12, where he developed a better understanding of every child’s innate creative ability, especially musically & lyrically.
Upon returning to Connecticut he completed a series of children’s songs specifically designed to promote self-esteem and self-confidence hoping to encourage children to self initiate their own musical ideas even in their most basic form. The results are two critically acclaimed CD’s; “Sounds Familiar” & “My Front Porch” on D&A Records. David Alpert’s warm, familiar acoustic instrumentation and comfortable vignette style of songwriting makes listening and eventually writing simple melodic tunes fun for the whole family.
David was recently commissioned to compose and record several theme songs for 2-children TV show pilots.
He continues to promote quality music for children & families through his "non-profit" Arts in the Early Grades Foundation and concert performances. David is currently working on a musical for stage production work and a 3rd music album.
