David James Mee was born January 17th, 1994. His love of music may have been introduced in the womb with attendance at concerts such as ZZ-Top at the time. However his love of playing music did not become apparent until a little later.
David was introduced to playing music through a love of video games. What was thought at the time to be a love for playing video games expressed through a music oriented game, was actually a love for playing music expressed through video games. He began playing simply enough, borrowing his music teacher’s guitar and learning a few chords. From there his love of playing and composing music grew rapidly along with his skills on a guitar.
After playing guitar on his own for 5 years he began to teach others. Though not classically for the most part, his passion for music and his desire to share this passion with others made him a lively and interested instructor for friends.
David passed away August 20th, 2015 but his passion for music will live on and still be infectious for others through The David James “DJ” Mee Memorial Scholarship with Suzuki Talent Education Society, Calgary.
