Happy Parents

“David's private teaching and his years of volunteer work with my percussion ensemble have made a huge difference with my drummers. I highly recommend him!”

-Nancy Cooke, past music teacher at WEJ Elementary, Kanata.

“I had an amazing time doing lessons every week, and I learned so much. I wouldn’t be anywhere close to where I am now if not for you.”

-Sam H.

“Lessons with David are always fun and enjoyable. He is so personable and enthusiastic. The sessions are tailored to each student’s level and he motivates you to progress to reach your potential.”

-Katie G.

“She really enjoys her lessons with you ... She is always laughing when she comes from your lessons which is a very good sign.”

-Carolina D., parent of drum student

“Your guidance and encouragement has allowed me to realize a life long dream of playing in a 'gigging' band. I have never felt faster or sharper than I do now and I am having a great time at the kit. 

Thanks David!”

-Dave, Ottawa Educator

“He must have a very good and motivating drum teacher, his technique and time is solid.”
