Overview:
I am a compassionate and nurturing teacher and mentor who loves to work with students to share my love for music. I am patient and dedicated to challenging my students to grow independently to become better musicians and take pride in their hard work and dedication. I have played and studied piano and drums for nearly 30 years and have been teaching for 15 years. I studied music myself privately with a plethora of great teachers and musicians I have performed with many different musicians and bands throughout my career.

Request More Reviews Latest Review By Susanna on 2/8/2022 Piano, In home 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! Silhouette-80 By Jen on 1/9/2022 Drum, In home 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. Silhouette-80 By Reanna on 12/6/2021 Piano, Online Excellent, patient instructor. I'm taking a break through December but can't wait to start back up again with David. Silhouette-80 By Tina on 11/4/2021 Piano, Online David is a pleasant and patient piano teacher. My ten year old son enjoys how David tailors his music to what is interesting to the student , which makes it fun! Silhouette-80 By Nicole Tartaglia on 3/31/2021 Piano, In studio 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! Silhouette-80 By Joe on 3/31/2021 Piano, Online 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:) Silhouette-80 By Avi on 3/31/2021 Audition Prep, In studio 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 Silhouette-80 By Mendel Sherman on 3/31/2021 Piano, Online David is very patient and very knowledgeable when it comes to teaching music. Would highly recommend David. By Jenifer on 4/5/2017 Piano, Online David explains things in a manner that I could easily understand. He was calm, patient, and respectful of skill level. By J M. on 6/16/2015 Drum, In home 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! By Janna R. on 4/1/2015 Drum, In studio 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! By Peter F. on 3/19/2015 Piano, In studio teacher and i are still trying to find a strdigy of teaching so the jury is still out By Ed T. on 12/16/2014 Piano, In home Very talented musician!!
EXPERIENCE
I have played and studied piano and drums for nearly 30 years and have been teaching for 20 years. I have performed with many different musicians and bands throughout my career. Specifically, I have taught and continue to teach in homes, studios, community based outreach organizations, as well as behavioral health facilities and other institutions. Engendering and instilling focus discipline and a fun loving attitude towards practice and performing is important to me as I utilize the many years of practice and performance to pass on the trade to the next generation of aspiring musicians.
METHODS USED
My teaching methodology is catered to each unique student based on age, level of musicianship, specific interests, and learning style/personality. lessons are designed to enhance students learning process and progress in order to help students develop over all self confidence. The lessons are created to help develop skills in reading notation, developing the proper technique, interactive improvisation and overall ability to play music in any performance setting with other musicians in a creative collective.
LESSON STYLE
My goal is to get students to appreciate the joy of actually practicing and performing music so that they enjoy becoming better musicians overall Practice can be time consuming take a lot of patience and perseverance. I strive to make sure practice methods are productive and enjoyable at the same time. I encourage students to practice concepts that play on their strengths and weaknesses in order to nurture self confident individuals. Consequently, the main goal is for the student to master musicianship skills to be able to adapt and excel in any performance situation.
