I teach various styles of music including, jazz, fusion, funk,Afro-Cuban , neo-soul and rock. I teach rudiments and classical drum technique utilizing various method books in order to facilitate proper technique, coordination ,chart reading, and overall musicianship. Improvisation is key to communication on the band stand . I coach students on how to practice efficiently and effectively in order to be able to play music with others. Lessons are geared to students’ goals and learning styles.
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 !

David is an extremely talented, knowledgeable and caring musician and teacher, proficient on multiple instruments, who both performs, plays, composes and manages in the music industry. I have known him many years and have always observed him to take keen interest in his students no matter their age or skill level. He communicates well and is always seeking to find the best way to develop and nurture the innate talents of his students and to help them to become the best musician they can be while having fun.

Being older I was worried about being able to learn the piano but always wanted to. David's flexibility and patience was amazing. I feel like I'm thriving now and look forward to each lesson. Great job!
