About this pro

Hello. My lessons are for beginning and intermediate students looking to improve their skills on snare drum or acoustic drum-set. Students will need to have acoustic drums to allow for practice between sessions. We will work on your skill-set relative to your level of experience. Each lesson will build on the next. In the end, I want my students to grow and feel confident with their drum-skills.  

I love when a student has a breakthrough by reaching a new level of skill and associated confidence.

    Dave provides challenging lessons for my son that are fun and engaging. He is professional and fun! My son actually loves practicing and having his drum lessons!

    He’s very flexible and his price is insanely great. You get a lot more than you pay for with David, he goes above and beyond the lesson. Great experience, would recommend!!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I discuss preferred lesson-times and equipment. I then have a specific agenda going into each lesson. I use the initial lessons to determine a student's level of skill at the start.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I started drumming at age 12. First Junior High Band, then High School Band, Drum & Bugle Corp on the weekends, High School Marching Band, High School Jazz Band, Garage Bands, and rock bands that played gigs. Then College Band, College Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, and drumming three nights a week for a band that performed Rock and Country. Minor in Music at college with emphasis in percussion.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

How did you get started teaching?

I became a youth sports coach in the mid-90's and found out I like teaching teens.

What types of students have you worked with?

I work mostly with beginners and intermediate level on snare drum and full drum-set.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a instructor who will keep you interested and challenge your growth. It's also important to have fun.
