About David P.

Learning to play music goes beyond understanding how to play an instrument alone. It is a craft and mentorship that teaches us the value of self expression, creativity, communication, focus, and more. As a professional musician, music therapist and educator, I understand what it takes to show you how to be a better musician and the process it entails. Content alone is not enough!! The art of teaching constantly clarifies and reinforces my knowledge and awareness of my own musicianship and what it takes to teach others. With a background in Music Performance, counseling psychology, music therapy and special education at the post graduate level, I am fully equipped to help you achieve your musical endeavors in a safe space for you or your child to be nurtured and enriched with the joy of music. I am sincerely happy to help you at any point on your journey !

I hired David for the 6-year-old I nanny, and although I’m not always present for the lessons, the 6yo and her parents rave about him. He’s patient, a great teacher, professional, punctual and willing to do in-home lessons (not many do, with the pandemic). Would definitely recommend him to anyone look for a great teacher!

David is patient, warm and easy to work with. He turned the lessons into games and my boys loved it. He’s very talented but more importantly understands how to communicate with kids and keep them engaged.

Excellent, patient instructor. I'm taking a break through December but can't wait to start back up again with David.
