Since graduating from the Eastman School of Music in 2009, teaching students of all ages has been a rewarding and inspiring part of my life. Many of my students have gone on to pursue their passion for music in college and beyond.

“Dave has been my musical mentor for over 10 years. He helped nurture my initial passion for music into a full fledged career. His dedication, patience, and care make for a uniquely exciting learning environment. He makes it easy to foster and maintain a love for music while seeing meaningful improvements in your playing.” -Leah Scarpati (2023)

“Dave Tedeschi‚Äôs teaching stems from a vast knowledge of styles from jazz to classical and everything in between. His versatile style paired with a strong passion for his craft allows any student to progress exponentially as a drummer and as a person. His sharp intellect and love for his students make him an incredible asset for any drummer, from beginners to more advanced students planning to study music at a collegiate level and beyond.” -Matt Matriano (2023)
