David Potts began his working life in Sydney as an industrial chemist and took up music later as a hobby. He studied Double Bass with Walter Sutcliffe, then Principal in the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and changed careers after winning a scholarship in the ABC National Training Orchestra when it started in 1967.

Soon after joining the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in 1970 David started teaching the Double Bass. He also studied further with John Gray and in 1980 joined the Sydney Conservatorium’s list of accredited private music teachers. While overseas in 1995 and 1997 he reviewed his teaching methods with three leading teachers, Tom Martin, Duncan McTier and Knut Guettler.

After thirty two years in its Double Bass Section David left the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in May 2002. This has enabled him to explore, expand and enjoy a new musical life as a freelance player, private music teacher, tutor of youth orchestras and, until recently, String Examiner for the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB).
