Dave first took drum lessons from Dan at age 14.  It wasn’t long before he played in the band program and got invited to perform with Dan and Mark Seamons (renowned pianist) in a professional setting.  Later he had the exciting opportunity of performing in two music videos with the Osmond Boys Second Generation.  Dave has since played in numerous bands along the Wasatch Front always looking for opportunities to play with the best musicians in varying genres and styles to develop his experience and skills. 
“I’m grateful for the opportunities that participating in Dan’s program has afforded me.  These experiences have enabled me to share my talents and love for music with many and have greatly enriched my life.  I love teaching the kids and trying to transfer my enthusiasm and love for music.”
