David Christopher Bendix Nielsen (Denmark)

David Bendix, born in 1993 in Denmark, started his musical studies around the age of 7 in Hungary. He received basic piano tuition through elementary school. At the age of 13, David entered the Richter Janos Music High School in Gyor, where he studied for five years, until the summer of 2012. He studied organ as main subject with Csilla Alfoldy-Boruss, but also received education in piano, harpsichord, and one year in composition with Atilla Remenyi, and played for organ and harpsichord masterclasses with Rita Papp, Laszlo Fassang, and Peter Kuzsner. He earned an OKJ degree in organ at the finish of his High School studies in 2012. He was then admitted to the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen where he is currently pursuing his Bachelor's degree in organ and sacred music with Bine Bryndorf.
