About David P.

I teach children, adolescents , and adults. I have also worked with special needs populations for many years in a variety of settings. I am very patient adept and compassionate. I am also very skilled at my instrument as I studied music at the University Level. My goals are to combine my experience teaching special education with my experience studying and teaching music performance. I am very enthusiastic about teaching students at advanced levels as well. I teach piano and drumset. I teach various styles of music and hope to engender my students' love for music and the arts. I consider myself a mentor, a Music Therapist, and an educator.

David explains things in a manner that I could easily understand. He was calm, patient, and respectful of skill level.

Awesome teacher! Not just a great drummer, but patient and articulate. He was really able to help me understand and execute in ways I never could before. Seems like he would also be great with kids...super patient and encouraging!

David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!
