Dave has played professionally in several cover and original bands. Currently, he is writing songs, performing, and has 2 CDs out with his band, Paledave (www.paledave.com). He also collaborates with his wife, Jennifer, as an acoustic duo and with MannaFest, a band which devotes its time and energy to helping nonprofit organizations raise money.
Dave teaches private lessons, mentors bands, and runs camps at Oz's Music. He enjoys seeing his students develop as musicians and come to a deeper appreciation of music in their lives. Songwriting is one of his favorite disciplines as a musician, and he incorporates it into his teaching whenever a student is interested. Dave has also taught guitar classes for Explorers Home School Network, Home School Central, and the Ann Arbor Public Schools.
