Dave Milligan is primarily a jazz pianist and improviser, but one whose musical imagination flows freely between all kinds of musical genres.
Growing up in the Scottish Borders, he started learning piano at the age of six and was inspired by a diverse array of musicians through a small but varied record collection in the family home. He went on to study Jazz & Contemporary Music at the City of Leeds College of music before settling in Edinburgh in the early 1990’s. To this day he continues to draw inspiration from a wide range of music; from Jazz to Folk & Traditional, and Film scores to Dance music.
In a professional career spanning twenty years, Dave has performed all over the world. He is one of the most highly regarded pianists in Scotland, and has gained an enviable reputation as a highly skilled composer and arranger, writing works for large-scale ensembles down to solos, duos, string quartets and numerous arrangements for small groups.
Dave has been working with Love Music Community Choir since it began in 2013, providing invaluable musical support and a great deal of sparkle to all of the choir’s performances.
