Dave Woolworth has been working in acoustics research and consulting since 1987, and as a performing musician since 1977 in many genres. The combination of the two gives him valuable insight to the inner workings of acoustics from the views of the artist and musician, to the engineer and the physicist. David draws on this and his attention to detail to pull together RWA's resources into an important asset to the consulting, design and analysis process.
Mr. Woolworth's research work has spanned from musical acoustics to performance halls, medical acoustics, and community noise, as well as a variety of other topics at the National Center for Physical Acoustics. He teaches and mentors regularly at universities in the South in architecture, audiology, and physics.
David’s musical work has found him performing classical music in Carnegie Hall to gospel in a small church in rural Eupora, Mississippi to amplified country and rock in Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado to weekly live bluegrass on Mississippi Public Radio; his experience of different musics and venues gives him considerable understanding to specific needs of specific genres for performance, and the critical aspects of venue design.
David Woolworth is a member of the Institute of Noise Control Engineering, and the National Council of Acoustical Consultants, has coauthored a booklet for the Acoustical Society of America to aid architects in the interpretation of the new national standard on classroom acoustics (ANSI S12.60), and has produced over 25 publications, seminars, and presentations to technical societies worldwide.
