When Davy was 7, he learned a classical music song from a CD by ear and played in it on the piano. He started taking lessons at 9, and became serious about the piano in high school. He also became enamored with musical theater, and joined Boston Childrens Theatre as an actor and singer when he was 16. I learned of his ability as a musician and was blown away, Clark recalled.
