Dave has taught my son for several years. He's patient and motivates his students to succeed. I would strongly recommend Dave to any beginning, intermediate or expert looking to improve their skills. What sets him apart from other teachers is he also plays professionally and invites his students on occasion to see first hand what music is all about.Nov 3, 2017
Dave taught me not just about drums, but he let me be aware that it's ok to be an individual. An overall cool guy that I would highly recommend!Oct 18, 2017
I took lessons with Dave for years and he was an excellent Drum teacher who made me enjoy musicOct 16, 2017
My grandson took lessons on the drums from Dave which were really great. He became a very good drummer but James also became interested in the keyboard and guitar, so along with his drum lessons Dave would give him beginner lessons on the other instruments which gave James an even greater love for music. Dave has a great way with his students and is available to the parents that may have questions or concerns. Many times Dave went above and beyond what was required of him. James has had a very positive experience with Dave and I would highly recommend him to any body that wants to learn drums.Oct 15, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My price for a half hour, in studio lesson is $25, $35 for 45 minutes and $45 and hour. If I travel, the rate goes up slightly depending on the distance. If you'd like a lesson outside of my business hours. please ask. Thank you!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I introduce all students to the drum set and show them what I call BASIC BEAT # 1. It fits in 95% of most songs you'll hear on the radio. If you've a;ready had lessons, I ask you what you'd like to work on.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been studying the drums since 1979. I've been in bands since 1983. I have been playing live shows since 1987.
