David earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in performance from the prestigious Manhattan School of Music.  He also has done extensive work at The Lighthouse, teaching percussion to the blind.  Kovins spearheads his own vibraphone-based group, performing and recording in New York.  His CD, Vibe From New York, has won acclaim both critically and commercially.  He has written five instructional books for vibraphone and marimba, a percussion ensemble with vibraphone solo and vibraphone/marimba duet, published by the venerable Warner Brothers and Hal Leonard, among others.  His mesmerizing performances can be viewed on Utube searching under his name.  Some of his most memorable work has been heard in Broadway shows, cabarets and during a growing number of performances with celebrities such as Wayland Flowers, pianist Jordan Rudess, violin virtuoso Yura Alexov -- as well as with dance companies such as Jerome Robbins'.
