I am an artist, musician, educator, and mentor who has been described as "an old soul with fresh ideas." I am a drummer and pianist based in Baltimore Maryland who has performed with a variety of artists across the country. He studied music performance at the University of the Arts and holds a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Temple University. I went on to continue his education in clinical and counseling psychology at postgraduate level. With a background in special education, behavioral health and music education, I understands that each student has a unique learning process and learning style and should be taught accordingly.
I began my piano studies at age five, and continued to to expand my musical craftsmanship over the years, picking up the drums at age twelve. As a professional musician, I strives to regularly strengthen both his relationship with himself and my connection to others through music. He sees music as a personal mediation and an ongoing communal activity that brings people together through healthy communication and collaboration. In order to achieve this, I stress the importance of mastery of the instrument in order to articulate his musical ideas clearly. Additionally, I value the ability to share his original music with the world, with the goal of inspiring others to create and collaborate and ultimately, to unite people.
With over twenty years of teaching experience, I understands that the art of teaching constantly clarifies and reinforces his knowledge and awareness of music. A patient and flexible teacher, I can approach each musical concept in a variety of ways depending on the student’s learning style. This consistent practice in adapting and responding to the needs of his students helps me to continue to expand and deepen his own understanding of musicianship.
I throughly enjoy nurturing students to learn and appreciate playing their music and enhancing their musical capabilities.
It's not just drums! Learning from David Pearl has been one of the most beneficial moves I have made for my enjoyment of playing music. David still learns and practices constantly, and that shows through his teaching. I would hit walls quite often in theory and composition, but because David is always learning new styles it helps break down those wall by showing me he's always challenging hurdles.
Typically I assess each student to discover their learning style , discuss their goals with them and implement appropriate lessons plans accordingly. Each lesson is designed to nurture and empower every students passion for music.
I have an associates degree in Music Performance , a bachelors degree in psychology as well as continuing education in clinical and counseling psychology. Ive spent many year working in the field of special education as a teacher, and therapist. I've been teaching private music lessons for over eighteen years to student ranging fro special education to advanced college prep for music school auditions.
