The abilities of Seth as a performer, clinician, and teacher are about as good they get. He is, without a doubt, one of the best in the business. Seth’s approach to drumming makes the impossible possible. He has been a major influence of mine for the past 20+ years and continues to impress. Thank you, SD!

Seth Davis is one of the finest drummers I've had the pleasure to know. His methods and his ability insurers you of becoming a better drummer in a short amount of time. His chops are legendary. I've had great success teaching my own students using his methods.

I have known Seth Davis for about 17 years. His approach as a drummer and a teacher is nothing short of extraordinary. He has grown and matured into a technical and highly experienced mentor in the drum world. With an upcoming book highlighting his knowledge, the art of drumming in both a practical and technical sense, I would consider him an asset to future drummers. Not only is he a highly talented drummer, he also shares his talent with others, so that they in turn, experience that same joy of music that he has. Good job, Seth!!!!!

Seth is NOT your run of the mill drummer or teacher. Re-read that a few times as I cannot stress this enough. He is not going to take some cookie-cutter approach and teach you the latest beat you heard on the radio. Seth has pushed his own abilities to the elite upper echelons of drumming and has verifiable world records and performances to back that up. Seth is a meticulous individual and that translates into his approach to music and how he teaches that to his students. I have known Seth for years, studied his material (and continue to do so), and know plenty of professionals in the music industry. Seth is in a league of his own and will help you reach your own apex if you are willing to make the commitment to what he says. Get on the waitlist if that even exists, trust me.
