David Orvek discovered his love for music as a teenager. Interested in learning more about how music worked after picking up the guitar, David impulsively enrolled in a music theory class, thinking it might be interesting. He was very quickly hooked on music theory and found he also enjoyed tutoring the other students in his class. Upon entering college, he decided to follow his passion and earned a BS in Music Theory and Literature from Southern Adventist University in 2016. As a graduate student and graduate teaching associate at The Ohio State University, David lives his dream every day as he studies and teaches the subject he loves.
