David Price was educated at Stockport School, where he began his musical studies under Geoffrey Barber. After 'A' level examinations, he then became a full-time student at The Royal School of Church Music, studying the organ with Martindale Sidwell, choir training with Michael Brimer, singing with Robert Poole and composition with Derek Holman. In 1963 he was awarded the 'Limpus' prize in the examination for Fellowship of the Royal College of Organists, and the following year gained the Choirmaster's Diploma.

The early years of his professional career were spent back in the North of England, where he was Head of Music at Peel Moat School, Stockport, Director of the Maia Boys' Choir and Assistant Organist at St. George's church under Arthur Rooke. In 1969 he moved to East Anglia, where for twenty-four years he was Director of Music at Taverham Hall Preparatory School, Norwich, and for a period also Master of Music at the Priory and Parish Church of St. Nicholas, Great Yarmouth - the largest parish church in England! In 1993 he took early retirement in order to be able to devote more time to adjudicating and examining work, and also private teaching. He has been a Guild Advisor for the Royal School of Church Music since 1974, and in 1996 was appointed Education and Training Officer for the Norfolk and Norwich area. In the same year he was invited to become Master of Music at the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Norwich. For the first five years of its existence he was Assistant Director of the I.A.P.S. Choral Course under Ralph Allwood. An examiner for the Associated Board since 1979, he has undertaken overseas tours in Cyprus, Hong Kong (2), Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.

Away from music, his hobbies and interests include Contract Bridge, crossword puzzles, statistics, the Stock Market, foreign travel and cats!
