David R. Hunsberger, a native of New Jersey, holds the Bachelor of Music cum laude from Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea OH, the Master of Music and PhD in music from Washington University in St Louis MO, the Juris Doctor from the University of California, Berkeley, and the 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 MO, and at Washington University. He currently is organist/director at Zion Lutheran Church in Piedmont CA.

He studied carillon with James R Lawson at the Riverside Church in New York City, and with Raymond Keldermans in Springfield IL. Since 1983 he has been an Assistant Carillonneur at the Berkeley campus. He has given carillon recitals widely in the US, 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.
