Dave Trouton (Music & Me and Sound Stories)

David Trouton is a musician best known for his work writing music for theatre and for music education.

He has composed and performed music for many of Scotland’s main theatre companies including NTS, Dundee Rep, Traverse and Edinburgh International Festival.  He also has long-standing creative relationships with Wee Stories Theatre Co, Catherine Wheels, Visible Fictions and Shona Reppe Puppets, writing and performing music for their award-winning shows that also tour internationally. As pianist and arranger for Gaelic singer Alyth McCormack, David has performed throughout Europe and North America.

He enjoys working with collaborators from diverse disciplines – dancers, film-makers, app designers, visual artists, community groups, schools and writers exploring how music and sound can help communicate ideas and tell stories. This fascination extends into David’s work with schools and educators, devising projects and programmes of work that use music to explore and extend the curriculum. He has been working with East Lothian Council Arts service and YMI for many years, and is currently developing his work in the Early Years, exploring music in nursery and early primary settings. Fave works with East Lothian Council on two projects, Sound Stories and Music & Me.
