Testimonials and References

I had contacted a few drum teachers in Edinburgh prior to going with Dave. They were all too expensive and overly complicated things. Having not played the drums before, Dave was very easy to follow and gave me the power to investigate things myself. If you want a teacher who will just show you how to play exactly like every other drummer then he is not for you. What Dave will do is plant a seed and encourage you to follow your own path and will teach you how to do this.

I had approx 16 lessons from Dave, and would go back without a doubt should I ever be in Edinburgh.

Dave is an excellent tutor. He adapted our sessions to my learning needs and has been working closely with me as my skills developed. Thanks to his well structured and comprehensive tuition, in the last 5 years, I have managed to work my way from absolute beginner to a publicly performing musician. I really value and recommend his lessons!

Rosie, Edinburgh

Right from the off it was clear that Dave had a very extensive repertoire and mastery of many different styles. This coupled with a phenomenal depth of musical knowledge, and a great easy going manner lessons with Dave are a pleasure.
On top of this, he is also a very good teacher -my drumming gained more from a few lessons with Dave than over my entire 5 years of self-taught playing.

Fran, Edinburgh

Dave is not only a fantastic drummer but also a great teacher. Our sessions were designed to keep me progressing and entertained, tailored to my own level and requirements. All in friendly atmosphere and with professional attitude. I would definitely recommend Dave as a drum teacher.
