About David

Hello! My name is David, and I am a music teacher of many different subjects. These include guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, recording, music theory, production, composition and film music composition. All styles, and all ages. Classical, Rock, Alternative, Blues, Jazz, and more! I have a Masters Degree in music from The University of Melbourne in Australia, as well as having the distinction of a Bachelors Degree in Music from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. I am one of the 16% of people who attended Cornish that actually graduated from their school. Many times a student will come to me after having been with another teacher for some time,.. they express to me that the other instructor did not teach them what they wanted to learn, nor did they achieve the result that ...

Guitar · In studio
I started receiving lessons from David a few years ago, to improve my guitar abilities. I always used to tell people, "I've been playing guitar since the Eighties, though you would never know it." At the time I started, I knew some Metal riffs, three-chord Punk Rock progressions, and simple 12-bar blues. Though I took two guitar classes and first-year Music Theory in college in the early Nineties, the only scale I could say I knew was "blues pentatonic," emphasis on the quotation marks.

My goal was to relearn Modes/Scales, and brush up on theory, so that I could write more complex material. David taught me that, and so much more. Over these few years, I've learned Progressive Rock, Fusion/Jazz, and even some Country styles, as well as a great deal more about Metal and, yes, even Punk from David. I can play leads and solos with much more proficiency, in timing with the rhythm, and more tonally correct, than I ever could before. He has also helped me read music better, construct more professional-sounding compositions, and has started me on my own path to produce my own recordings, from recommending and using recording software, to capturing dynamics with mic placement, to mixing the rough takes to get the most out of the sound.

For a musician of any level or caliber, having an instructor like David is a true asset--for he has the knowledge and skills to take an entry-level musician every step of the way to becoming a professional performer, recorder, mixer, engineer, and producer. The only limit to the lesson's potential is your own level of determination, which David quite expertly helps you to improve with every session. Even if your goal is to simply learn to play one song on one instrument--and David teaches MANY instruments--he will have you playing that song like the musician who wrote it before you realize it--as long as you stick with your practice between lessons. That part's up to you!

David is an outstanding instructor! My son is 5 years old and loves him. My son is occasionally a difficult child with his own special quirks, but David is so patient and observant and tailors the lessons as we go along week to week to keep my son engaged, encouraged and learning. I also have two younger children who must tag along to the lesson and even they are excited during the lessons and are already asking when they start their lessons! We will be starting at least one more child's lessons with him during this coming school year! He is great!

Joe's strong music background and experience make him a good teacher. I'm positive that he would be excellent with a beginner. I only needed a refresher in knowledge and he has helped me a great deal. I would strongly recommend him for future students

I had a great lesson with Francesca. Very knowledgeable and worked and helped me quite a bit on learning and understanding several aspects of the guitar. If it were not for scheduling conflicts I would have kept having lessons with her and would not hesitate to plan future lessons with Francesca. Great personality and teaching skills!!

We have really had a lot of fun working with Francesca! My daughter and I have been taking guitar lessons for a few months and in that short time we have learned new skills along with a sense of motivation to develop ourselves as musicians. I really appreciate how Francesca teaches with a variety of techniques in order to meet the needs of all different learners - she inspires and keeps us enthusiastic to learn. She listens to what is needed for each student and makes each lesson fresh and fun. We're so happy that we found her as a teacher and I would definitely recommend her!

My 14 year old daughter and Francesca have been working together for 2 years now. Initially the lessons were geared towards piano to build a foundation to singing and all music, and we have incorporated singing for the last year. My daughter and Francesca have built an understanding together on what to work on, focus on, and build on. My daughter is the ability to sing and play piano simultaneously, each week coming to Francesca with what she is inspired by with her own natural skills and Francesca knows how to take this to the next level. My daughter trusts Francesca and her guidance and is motivated by everything she shares. If you are looking for an instructor to motivate you to be a confident musician and not just someone who plays an instrument well, she is the one! We love Francesca!

Great Teacher!

Katie Ilen is an amazing singer with a knack for teaching. She is patient, kind, informative and highly skilled. My daughter loves her and talks about her all the time. After taking lessons with Katie my daughter has gotten so much better it is surprising. Katie also incorporates recording into her lessons and now we have 2 adorable recordings of my daughter singing. Priceless! Highly recommended!

I believe that Gfire do fire herself in the music and do appreciate all the times she took to teach my little girl the piano lesson. I cannot wait for me to see her able to both play and read music. She will, and I will say thanks to Mrs. Gfire. Everything happen for reason in life.

About Music Recording

Musicians put a significant amount of work and thought into their music; however they often have a difficult time finding ways to showcase their creativity in a way that their audience can truly appreciate. They may have included many impressive elements into a song, but they can not be certain that this creativity will translate into recorded format. If you enroll in music recording lessons, you are taking a great step towards solving this problem. You see, attending this type of class will give you a background in recording and also equip you with the necessary skills to monitor or even record music all by yourself. The quality of the sound of your composition can make or break a musicians success, so there is no doubt that it is a great investment to sign up for music recording lessons ...
