He received an accelerated degree in Music in 1992.
Since returning to the UK, Dave has played with several Bands most notably So What who toured extensively throughout the UK. Other bands included Norbere's Nodules, Blue Green and Redd .His current band Joocypeach have released two CD's Midnight Over Erith and Essential Endeavours with a third due to be released in late 2008.
Dave now teaches 4, 5 and 6 string Electric Bass with over 25 courses listed on his website (www.joocypeach.com). This tuition is carried out on a one to one and group basis. For those living further away Dave has devised a Distance Learning pack to teach over the 'net.
When Dave is not writing or working at his home studio he is teaching other local musicians the needs of the professional musician and the music industry.
