David A.

Private Drum Teacher

David was an in-demand freelance drummer and educator in Chicago for 10 years before moving to the DMV to play drums for the US Navy Band Sea Chanters. His diverse background and wide-ranging influences shaped him into a versatile musician; David showcases that versatility in the private lesson environment and gives his students a truly unique musical experience.

David is 100% committed to his students' success. He centers his lessons on fundamentals and essential musical vocabulary while blending the student's personal musical goals. "Exercises" are rarely used; David leans on tangible, real-life examples of vocabulary that transcend genre. He is also a firm believer that improvisation is the key to musical mastery.

David will set the bar high for his students, but the beauty of setting realistic goals keeps students engaged, focused, and loving practice!

About David

Chicago expat; United States Navy Band drummer; David has developed a reputation for his professionalism and versatility as a musician. Moving to Chicago was the catalyst for David’s musical career. The diverse and robust Chicago music scene helped mold him into a first-call sideman over the

About Andrew

Musically and personally, I strongly feel that diversity and openness are key in a person's development: when we move outside of our comfort zone and embrace the unknown, we are better able to grow as musicians (and human beings). As a performer, I feel that performing with musicians of different b

Great Experience

From the first lesson, Andrew has been a consummate professional. Each lesson he brings in something new, while making sure that everything we've covered in the past is still ingrained through repetition. Having Andrew as an instructor has opened my eyes to the many facets of drumming, and I have taken skills/techniques with me that will last forever. The feedback does not stop after each lesson, Andrew is available all the time for any questions I may have during the week if I am stumped while practicing. His schedule is flexible with mine, and he is willing to bring in music that I want to personally learn. The lessons are the right balance of fun and teaching, and his studio promotes a learning environment that is not intimidating to let loose if you're a beginner like me.

I'd recommend Andrew to anyone looking to expand their skill set, the lessons have been a great experience.

This is the first lesson I got to listen to of my son working with Nathan. Usually I'm not home from work. I am really impressed with how much he was able to help my son improve so quickly. I wish we had started this much sooner.

Online Drum Teacher

I started learning the drums to understand how to play bass with a drummer better! It really stuck, and the drums are likely my favorite instrument of all. I can teach basic hand independence, proper playing technique, reading sheet music, and drum beats.

About Quentin

I go to the University of Georgia for Double Bass Performance. I've spent about 9 years learning and sharing everything I can about this wonderfully complex instrument. So many genres of music can be played on the double bass, and once you add my secondary instrument, the bass guitar, you're a nece

I have two boys working with him. They are both so excited to share with me what they've learned after each lesson. I've never seen them look so proud of themselves as they do after their weekly drum lessons!

Rates are very reasonable also."

"I started studying with Dave at the young age of 15. Under his care, he instilled in me a passion for music and the drums that I don’t think I would’ve gotten anywhere else. Because of him, I entered into Berklee College of Music as a competent MUSICIAN, never mind drummer. If you’re serious about learning how to play drums, you want an instructor whose passion is infectious, who will inspire you to want to get better after every lesson. I can’t recommend anyone higher than I recommend Dave."

"Mark Review

I have had many different types of music teachers through out my life and Mark is by far the best. He is very serious about helping his students do what they want to do. I had specific goals I wanted to accomplish. Mark took my goals seriously and did what he could to help me understand the techniques to be a good drummer. He broke things down in to little steps that helped me to practice on my own and figure specific drum patterns out, He gave me the tools to improve myself as a musician, Mark did not have to but he chose to put a lot of his own time in to teaching me what I wanted to learn He obviously cares about his students and takes them seriously. I highly recommend him to any future students"
