Lessons with David —

Weekly lessons with David are structured around achieving attainable short-term goals.

Daily practice sessions are encouraged, but thoughtful, intermittent practice sessions far outweigh the necessity of sitting behind the kit every day.  David strives to make the atmosphere of the lesson relaxed and fun; he is patient and accommodating for different styles of learners.

Although David is fond of several famous publications such as Stick Control and The Art of Bop, he doesn’t rely on text as the only way to deliver a musical message.  David often references recordings and offers listening assignments to students as a way to connect to the material.  He also implements ear training, transcription, sightreading, and rudimental exercises to assist in each student’s development.

David teaches a wide variety of drumset styles and concepts: Pop, Rock, Funk, R&B, Hip Hop, Jazz (big band and small group), Latin/World, New Orleans 2nd line, chart-reading, and improvisation.  Explore some of David’s recordings and videos.
