David R. Hunsberger, a native of New Jersey, holds a bachelor of music degree, cum laude, from Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea Ohio, a master of music and Ph.D. in music from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, a Juris Doctor from the University of California, Berkeley, and an associate certificate from the American Guild of Organists, which he attained at age 20.

He has taught music at the Thailand Theological Seminary in Chiang Mai, at Webster College in Webster Groves, Missouri, and at Washington University. He currently is organist/director at Zion Lutheran Church in Piedmont, California.

He studied carillon with James R. Lawson at the Riverside Church in New York City, and with Raymond Keldermans in Springfield, Illinois. Since 1983, he has been an assistant carillonneur at the Berkeley campus. He has given carillon recitals widely in the United States, Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. For 30 years, he was the legal counsel to the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America, and for 25 years its treasurer.

His house’s tiny plot in Oakland has seven coastal redwood trees on it. He does a lot of sudoku. He’s not much of a cook, but he likes people who are.
