About David

I am a student at the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music. I am studying Music Performance: Jazz Studies (drum set). I have been playing drums my whole life and I have been playing professionally since age 16.

For more experienced students we will work on independence, reading, and session style playing.

I teach lessons out of the Jazz Studies department at CCM. I have a room with 2 drum sets and sound equipment. For easy access to the lesson, park in the CCM Garage and go to level P1. Enter through ...

Great for beginners or those w/more experience.

David is easy to get along with, always calm and instructive. He teaches the basics to beginners. You'll be reading music in no time and playing basic beats quickly too.

Terrific Teacher

He is a stupendous teacher. He makes his students feel comfortable, which is essential for optimal performance, without being excessively lax. The diaphragmatic breathing technique he began our first lesson with has proven to be incredibly valuable in signing and in my life in general.

Has a gifted teaching ability

David has been an excellent teacher for my young children. He is patient, encouraging, and has a good teaching method. My children made good progress and although they were skeptical about taking lessons, once they had a lesson with David, they continued to come back and made very good progress.

David is an incredible teacher and mentor. I recommend him without any reservations.

David is not only gifted at building your talent and ability - he will help you build your confidence. I took weekly singing lessons with David, starting with no experience at all, and he took me to a place I never thought I could be. Lessons are relaxed, efficient, and directed at your own pace, and David has a way of making you very comfortable with his patient, kind demeanor. He is a diamond in the rough, and easily worth 2x the money.
