Bands & Groups
Bands and camps with Dave offer exciting opportunities for students to play with other musicians. There is no greater feeling as a musician than getting into a groove with a band - anticipating and playing off one another dynamically and rhythmically. Playing and performing with others is when a musician truly hones his or her skills.
Dave helps students form bands, works with existing bands, and conducts band camps. For students looking to form a band, Dave works with a network of music teachers to bring kids or adults together of compatible age and ability.
For those with an established band, Dave helps your band develop into a tighter, more polished version of its current form. In both cases, he draws upon years of band experience, and an understanding of song structure, instrumentation, and sound to help students hone their skills and negotiate their way toward becoming better musicians through the "band experience".
