Biography.

Who's behind the name Davy Stark? A short description.


Born in 1984, Dave Arcari aka Davy Stark started his musical education at the age of 6. He took piano lessons for four years until he swapped the keys for drums at the age of 10.

After 11 years of training, he attended Agostini Drum School and graduated in 2011. Already during his training as a professional drummer, he taught regularly at his school (http://www.schlagzeug-baden.ch), which he still runs successfully today.

At that time Davy Stark also started working as a composer and delved into music production. Finally, he enrolled in Audio Engineering at the SAE Institute in Zurich, where he graduated in 2017. Since then, he has been fostering his „Sound Forge“ for compositions in film, television, and advertising alongside his music school.

Davy Stark also works as a freelancer at various recording studios.
