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 !

Very nice and works well with kids. We are using him for remote piano for our 5 year old daughter, he helped us with the setup and and it works really well! Already recommending him to my friends with younger kids!

Dave is excellent with my 5 year old daughter. Great approach combining music theory and technical training all while keeping the attention of my child. Could not be any happier with our experience:)

We had great experience with David. One of my kids learning drums and the second one - piano. Both of them don’t have any experience before and they do great progress during their learning for 3-4 months - bi weekly zoom lessons. David teach them and help us to select the right instruments and other relevant materials
Highly recommended

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!
