I specialize in progressive music. Meaning, Progressive rock, and Jazz Fusion. However, I also am very qualified to perform and teach popular music. That is intentionally vague as I've performed mostly in rock and country, but also in jazz and various latin styles. I've also taught these various styles to students.
Lesson content is quite varied depending on age and experience level of the student; though all lessons aim at eventually making the student an excellent performer. I don't skip the basics for the sake of getting to "the fun stuff". That being said, I make sure there is plenty of "fun stuff" too. Having fun is one of the highest priorities. Other priorities are: achieving some self-accomplishment, personal discipline, and breadth of knowledge in many regards of music.
Originally from the Milwaukee area, drummer David K. began learning the drumset when he was 12. He took lessons from the beginning and didn't stop until he graduated from college with a Bachelors degree in Music; with an emphasis on Recording Technology. After college David started teaching drum and percussion lessons. He also performed and ran sound for bands in south-eastern Wisconsin. In 2001, David moved to the Twin Cities, where he has been performing, recording and releasing albums
with various bands. He teaches drums out of his in-home recording studio.
