Dave has been giving on line Cubase lessons to my teenage son for several weeks. Dave has been a great tutor and our son enjoys the lessons, has learnt a lot and developed his skills. He says ‘Dave is great at explaining things and a good teacher’.

My daughter Riley is thoroughly enjoying her music production lessons with Dave. He is very knowledgeable and professional in this field and his lessons are always very interesting. Riley is learning so many cool skills in Logic Pro.
