About David

After graduating from Salford University, England with a Bachelors degree (Honors) in Music and Composing I worked for a short time as a commercial "jingle" writer, before moving to San Diego, marrying my dream girl, and opening my own music recording, teaching and production studio. From there I have been teaching lessons, recording bands and writing music for independent film ad video games for the last 6 years. Throughout this time I've been continually performing live in venues all over California. *** Lesson Details *** I teach both from a privately rented studio in Santee and from my home studio in La Mesa. Both are fully equipped for guitar, bass and drum lessons and even have recording facilities! In my lesson plans I try to combine theory and technique with practical application

Excellent Teacher

Dave is able to work with me, a beginner, and provide me with enough challenge so that I keep learning and also keep interested in drums. He has a great sense of humor along with patience which is important with a teacher whom is teaching a beginner. At times he will also take out a guitar and play along which adds to the fun.

Francisco P. North Hollywood, CA

Drums is my primary instrument, the one I chose to follow as a career in music. Drums make us dance, make us smile, and they are simply extremely fun to play. The most important thing I focus on is in playing music with the drums. There is nothing more rewarding and fun than playing with and for other people. Whether you are interested in learning how to play your favorite pop or rock song or a jazz standard, I can teach you what makes drumming unique in each style, and what you will need to know to express yourself in the instrument.

About Francisco

I was born in Argentina. I began playing bass when I was ten years old, while my younger brother began playing drums. I started taking bass classes, and also formed several bands as a bass player, although the drums had always been sounding in the back of my head. After listening to Tool’s Danny Carey and Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, at the age of 17, I realized the drums were my true love, and began studying the instrument. I continued playing bass in several bands, until I joined the band The Evenfall as a drummer, in 2009. At this time, my family was considering moving to the U.S, and that's when I got the chance to apply to the Berklee College of Music. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2012 with a degree in Drumset Performance. There I studied with the most respected drummers and ...

I took up drums 2 years ago in my early 40's. Francisco was my first drum teacher, and he patiently introduced me to the instrument, exposed me to many different musical concepts and traditions, and really increased my interest in music and drumming. He is an amazing player, and I learned much from watching him play in lessons and also live. Unfortunately he moved from Boston to CA, which was my loss.I reccommend him without reservation.

I took many lessons with Francisco after a period of relative inactivity from playing drums on a consistent basis. I had been playing for years, but had unfortunately become rusty and out of practice at the time. Francisco helped me build my chops back up, and introduced me to new unique concepts in phrasing, approaching grooves, technique, and much more. Francisco's down-to-earth and very friendly personality, combined with his obvious passion for drums and percussion, made every lesson an event I looked forward to. He gave me a lot to think about each lesson, providing me with great musical concepts that can be studied for life. Francisco isn't a teacher who only thrives teaching beginners. As a drummer for several years with lots of performing experience, he still managed to significantly help improve my playing and reignite my spark in drumming. Thanks, dude

If I had to put what I've experience with Mr. Bruce H. it would be excellent, magnificent, superb, and outrageously good. He is very professional and is very attentive. I did not think I could learn to sing because of my strong Caribbean accent, but the training I received from Bruce- my son said "mummy your voice sound sweet." At that moment I know I had to finish what I had started. If Bruce can make a frog sing and sound sweet- the only word to describe him would be- Genius.

Tim M. Poway, CA

I have been teaching from from beginner's to the college level and older adults for 30 + years.
I focus on fundamentals like rudiments and technique, snare and drumset reading and all styles of drumset playing including grooves, fills and more!

About Tim

Since graduating from San Diego State University in 1986 (where I received my Bachelors degree in music and was the recipient of the Outstanding Graduate Award in music for that year), I have been able to be involved in so many areas of drumming, percussion(including mallet instruments like vibes and xylophone) and teaching. This includes being an adjunct professor in the music dept. at SDSU (1994-1998) and currently at Grossmont College. From performing with international jazz giants like Art Farmer and Hank Jones, and local legends Hollis Gentry and L.A. guitarist Ron Eschete- to performing in pop settings with my own top 40/classic rock band and backing bands like the Drifters or pop singer Peter Cetera, my experience is broad. I've played in successful pop groups. ...

My son Brian started taking lessons with Tim about 5 months ago. He can never wait for lesson day! I also never have to remind him to practice :-) He plays several other instruments and Tim has been able to advise him in some way on all of them, though Brian says the drums are his favorite. Brian feels very comfortable with him and says he is very supportive. He even helped me find Brian a new drum set! My son has nothing but good things to say about him, as do I :-)

My name is Chazdan Lane. I started taking lessons from Tim while I was in middle school and I am still taking lessons while in high school. The lessons have been great. I have improved my playing a lot and I have learned things I would have never though I would have learned. The lessons are fun and they help me improve a lot.
