David Rothman was born in Toronto, Canada in 1962. When he was ten years old he was awarded a piano scholarship, in open competition, to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School, Surrey, England. Members of the jury included Yehudi Menuhin and Nadia Boulanger. Among his teachers at the Menuhin School were Louis Kentner and Vlado Perlemuter. At age seventeen he won a piano scholarship to study at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where he was a student of Mieczyslaw Horszowski and Seymour Lipkin. David Rothman presently lives in Portland, Oregon.
