David Hegarty is available for coaching in theatre organ, symphonic organ, or service playing in the San Francisco Bay area.
One of his specialties is the orientation of classical organists to the idiosyncrasies of the theatre organ, including its registrational and stylistic differences. And as a fluent arranger, he offers the advantage of providing instant personalized arrangements to meet the individual student's needs.
David Hegarty is best known in the Bay Area as the organist of the Castro Theatre since 1978. He also plays regularly at the Stanford Theatre (Palo Alto) and at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor. He is a prolific composer/arranger, and, as a concert organist, he specializes in his own transcriptions of film music from Hollywood's Golden Age.
