Drum Afficianado

Dave has been drumming since the tender age of 12, and "tinkering" with drums for almost as long. 

He spent 4 years as a drum technician at Assembly Music in Bath, and more recently 4 years as the drum technician at DrumWright in Woodley, where he also worked, after founding Dave's Drums, on a freelance basis until their closure in January 2016.  He has repaired and serviced a massive variety of drums and hardware, both at work and in his spare time. 

He has been a drum teacher since 2000.

Dave is also a gigging drummer and currently plays in an awesome 80s rock covers band - DeLorean and Ska band The Skandal. Dave deps for The Curfew, Groove-X and El Toro (and anyone else who asks!).

In his spare time, he enjoys playing his bass, cycling and spending time with his wife (& business partner), son and 4 step-children.
