DRUM LESSONS

What Dave likes to focus on with his students is drumming "for the song." Being able to construct an interesting drum part, playing steady with feel and busting out the chops to create excitement when it's called for will make you a fun drummer to play with. His real world experience has taught him that drumming is not about having the fastest hands or playing the most complicated fills - it's about clarity, feel, self expression and joy. Dave wants to communicate what he has learned about drumming over the years to others!

With over 30 years as a drummer, performer, songwriter and musician, Dave brings confidence and fun to his lessons, along with the flexibility and understanding to tailor lessons to your needs and learning style.
