Many years of drum instruction with students who have learned best with alternative learner-centered approaches including: extreme patience, slow to fast repetition of patterns and exercises, focused breathing, as well as sight-reading, rhythm and ear training. Students with: Asperger's, Autism, Dyslexia and related states have benefited greatly.
I have been working with learners in both one-on-one and classroom/workshop settings for ten years. The majority of my teaching experience has been with youth aged 3-30, but I have also taught learners of all ages as well. My principal subject matter is drum set instruction, but I also teach flamenco cajón and Spanish language!+ Read More
English grammar and general education theory course.
DAVID IS AN OUTSTANDING TEACHER IN EVERY RESPECT. HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH SEEMS EXCELLENT, AND HIS INTEREST IN THIS LANGUAGE IS CLEARLY VERY STRONG. THIS ALLOWS CLOSE ANALYSIS OF SPANISH, AND STANDS AS A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT TO THE DIDACTIC PROCESS. IN TURN THIS PROMOTES A SPIRIT OF LEARNING IN CLASS WHICH IS INFORMATIVE AND GOOD FUN. FINALLY HIS KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH/ENGLISH COGNATES AND INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS IS UNUSUALLY BROAD, WHICH MAKES LEARNING SPANISH WITH HIM EASY AND ENTERTAINING. I BELIEVE DAVID HAS A TRUE VOCATION FOR TEACHING, AND I HOPE I CAN GO ON WITH LESSONS WITH HIM FOR SOME TIME TO COME.+ Read More
David is a great instructor. My son is 9 and a beginner and David is very good with him.
David is a good and patient teacher. He really helped me with honing the fundamentals.
Great teacher! David is a talented drummer, teacher, & he is great with kids! My 10 year old loves David and has been steadily improving since beginning. I have also noticed a big improvement in my son's confidence. Priceless!
You should book this guy right away! He is very proficient, professional, polite, and one of the very best drum instructors in town!
David is knowledgeable, well spoken, and truly has a passion for drums as well as education. He is patient and always has an insightful answer for all of my questions. He has helped me with my technique and given me a deeper understanding rhythm in general. Highly recommended!!
