About David Cronkite

I am from Truro, Nova Scotia and have been teaching and playing drum set, percussion, and piano for over 45 years. My teaching style is fun, engaging, and in-depth. I have two children, both in the arts. Ana is a production manager for a growing film company—Max plays bass and works on his Master's in ancient and medieval history.
