David Osborne was introduced by pianist Roger Williams as "heir apparent" to the title "Pianist To The Presidents." The spectacular introduction happened in a concert at Sun Coast Casino and Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mr. Williams earned this title performing for many U.S. Presidents at The White House during his celebrated career. David Osborne has performed for Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush 41, Clinton, Bush 43, and President Obama multiple times at The White House. Pianist Osborne has also performed at the invitation of The White House Tour office as well as for private dinners hosted by The President and First Lady.
A native of Miami, Oklahoma David began playing the piano by ear at age four in church and at his grandmother's house. He commenced formal training by age five. He continued practicing in excess of six hours daily through Junior and Senior high school and started lessons with Mary Helen Harutun in Joplin, Mo. Her intense piano training and instruction birthed three National piano winners in Music Teachers National Association Festivals. David was an MTNA national winner and participated in the National Piano Guild for many years under Harutun. David began his professional career by the age of thirteen as he traveled and performed on piano and organ in Oklahoma and the four state area.
Osborne graduated from Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, Oklahoma with a Bachelor's degree in Music Performance. Osborne then studied at Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana and attended Master Classes at The Juilliard School.

David met former President Jimmy Carter at a book-signing event in Orlando, Florida. A thirty- year friendship was forged on that day, and Carter has called Osborne "one of the greatest pianists in the world!" Carter says "David Osborne is my favorite pianist." David has played birthday concerts for President Carter almost every year for thirty years. On one occasion, George W. Bush pounded on David's chest in the State Dining room saying repeatedly, "This boy can play!" This was following a Christmas White House performance by Osborne with Van Cliburn, Joss Stone, Darius Rucker and Kenny Chesney in the room. Also in attendance was Donald Hall, CEO Hallmark Cards, who later hired David for several events. Additionally, President Clinton once nudged up against Osborne on the Steinway bench and remarked, "Let me see that lick again!"
