David Paul Graham (born 22 January 1951) is a British composer and music educator.


Born in Stratford-upon-Avon, Graham studied composition, piano and direction at the Reading University. He continued his studies in Hans Werner Henze's master class at the Hochschule für Musik Köln from 1980 to 1983. After a lengthy stay in Italy, where he directed the music school of Montepulciano as Animatore Culturale from 1983 to 1986 and was responsible, among other things, for the local contribution to the music festival there, he now lives in Bonn as a composer and composition teacher. His compositions have been performed at numerous festivals (for example Almeida Festival, London; Munich Biennale; Columbus Festival, Udine; Steirischer Herbst [de]; Luis Casas Romero, Camagüey). He wrote film scores for Volker Schlöndorff and Bill Douglas, among others.[1][better source needed]

Pedagogical activities[edit]

As a composition teacher at the music school of Montepulciano, he led a children's composition class that collaboratively composed an opera that was later performed by children and young people. This became a model for many similar projects internationally. From 1986 onwards, Graham set up a composition class for children and young people at the Clara Schumann Music School in Düsseldorf, whose participants compose operas, Singspiels and film scores together, as well as writing compositions for various instrumentations individually.

Notable students: Hauke Berheide,[2] Birke J. Bertelsmeier, Andreas Kunstein, Luca Vanneschi, Valentin Ruckebier
